NEW YORK - As far as one-hit wonders go, Canadian Daniel Powter is king of them all - for this decade, at least.
Powter, from Vernon, B.C., whose hit "Bad Day" reigned on top of the Billboard pop charts for five weeks in 2006, was named as the decade's top one-hit wonder by Billboard.
The magazine describes one-hit wonders as acts whose second hit did not reach the top 25; they only included acts from 2000 to 2007, since someone from last year might just be taking a break.
No. 2 on their list is the Terror Squad for "Lean Back"; No. 3 is Crazy Town with "Butterfly"; No. 4 is MIMS with "This Is Why I'm Hot"; and No. 5 is D4L - remember them? - with "Laffy Taffy."
