Attack of two Teenybopper One Hit Wonders of the 1990s

Okay, hands up if any of you will ever admit to knowing the words to these songs.

The One And Only by Chesney Hawkes
Irritating overexposed one-hit-wonder, but you gotta admit: you can hardly go wrong with a spectacular debut hit single written by Nik Kershaw.

How Do You Talk To An Angel by The Heights
What's the difference between these losers and the Goo Goo Dolls again?

Aaaw, the Heights! I was driving to Kansas City with a friend of mine and this song came on, and we started singing along with exaggerated faces etc, sort of giggling as we sang to say how silly the song was.

Just as the song ended, my friend turned to me and said, "You know, we're making fun of this song, but we both secretly like it."

Sigh. She was right.

Never heard the first song though.

Happy new year, Mrs. G!

The first song was very big in the UK when it came out, but it was a very minor hit in the US, if I recall correctly.
