Los del Rio - Macarena
Album: Fiesta Macarena
The Macarena became an absolutely gigantic song that spent 14 weeks at No. 1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. It was ranked as the No. 7 song on Billboard‘s All Time Top 100 and was ranked as the #1 One-Hit Wonder of all time by VH1.
Despite it topping the “No Play” list at mine, it is still regularly heard at almost every wedding you’ll ever go to.

Interesting Facts: After numerous breakups and roster changes, Snap! tried making one last comeback in 2008 with a re-recording of “Rhythm Is A Dancer ’08”. Unfortunately, the ship had sailed on their classic, though it achieved minor success in the UK.
