Quiz Description

Some artists are misremembered as one-hit wonders when they actually charted with multiple top-40 hits, but only one continues to get airplay, space in our collective cultural memory, etc. For each question you'll get the title of a top-40 hit other than the one the artist is most commonly remembered for, and the year it charted. You NAME THE ARTIST. Note that all of these artists charted at least twice in the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100.
