The One Hit Wonder World Cup – Round 2

Round two off the One Hit Wonder World Cup saw Scott Ross backing Deep Blue Something’s “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” as Group B’s presenter pick. Then, it was up to you to cast your votes on Twitter and Facebook to choose a winner from the rest of Group B.

Europe’s “The Final Countdown” secured a place in the semifinals with 64% of the Twitter vote and a 4 vote margin on the Facebook poll. “What’s Up?” by 4 Non-Blondes missed out in second place with the remaining 36% of your Twitter votes. “Macarena” and “She’s Like The Wind” only managed 1 Facebook vote each but since we received a request for it, we did the Macarena live on drivetime… never again!

Tomorrow, the fun continues with more of the same from 3pm and we’ll be sending two more one hit wonders through to the dizzy heights of semifinal fame! You’ll be able to vote on Twitter @StewPink or @PhoenixFM and via the Phoenix FM Facebook page.

If you missed it, I’ll be putting together a mix of the best bits from my Drivetime cover on my regular podcast. Just search “Stewart Pink” whenever you get your podcasts from and if you’re a fan of my shows then be sure to tune in for my regular hangouts – I present The As Yet Untitled Rock Show every Tuesday from 10pm and The One2Three Show every Friday from 1pm.
