1998's Greatest One-Hit Wonders

As part of its series about 1998, Vulture posted a list revisiting that year's one-hit wonders, and they are a DELIGHT. In addition to to-this-day classics like "Bittersweet Symphony" and "Closing Time" there are gems like "Too Close" (which, unbeknownst to my 11-year-old self at the time, is about a gentleman dancing too close to a lady and getting a boner - yes!) and "Flagpole Sitta" (which I somehow knew all the lyrics to but never the name of the actual song) as well as songs I completely forgot about but loved like, "You Get What You Give" and "Crush." Check it out! Just don't think about the fact that 15-year-olds likely only heard these songs in utero.
