Another great one-hit wonder was Billy Swan with "I Can Help.">

My favorite 1-hit wonder was dexys midnight runners

Nov-08-15  Ferro: Veronica (Veronica decide morir)
Nov-08-15  Ferro: I'm subnormal

Nov-08-15  Ferro: Thanks thanks thanks...
Nov-08-15  Everett: Funny, always thought this was a Boston song. Sounds much more like Boston than Kansas.

  OhioChessFan: What <FSR> said. What <FSR> said.
Nov-08-15  RFW3: <perfidious> Kansas were far from a one-hit wonder: the title cut of <Point of Know Return> and <Dust in the Wind> were also hits from that album.

True, they were not one hit wonders. But a slight correction here, Carry on Wayward Son and What's on My Mind were from the Leftoverture album.

  HeMateMe: technically, it's not a pun. Neither was the one you claimed authorship for some time ago, "How to beat Edmar Mednis."
Nov-08-15  mass61: Oh wow! spassky clearly didnt see it coming and probably almost fainted when keres made that queen sacrifice.

Sorry, but Dexy's had at least two hits that I remember ... 'Come on Eileen' and, uh, the other one...

  kevin86: A great finish! The coming windmill with chop up black's position like a chainsaw!
Nov-09-15  Howard: Uhhhh......Kevin86, was that remark an intended pun on your part ?!

If you don't know what I'm referring to, the guy who played the murderer in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, just died at 68 ! Did you know that when you submitted that comment ?

You clearly have an air-tight case :)

  Domdaniel: <TGA> Heh, yes ... it was 'Geno', wasn't it? < They are best known for their songs "Come On Eileen" and "Geno", both of which peaked at No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart.>

Another one hit wonder: Lieutenant Pigeon.

  perfidious: <Dom> Dexy's qualified Over Here as a one-hitter, but of course you are correct: they did well on the auld soil, same as Amii Stewart with her cover of <Knock on Wood>, her only hit in the USA, who enjoyed more success abroad.

  morfishine: You are all correct about Kansas, they are not a one-hit wonder. I was too harsh. But here, there's a radio station that always BLABS: WDBO "Where its all about the Music" then if they say "And here's Kansas" its always that 'Carry on Wayward Son' song, and I quickly change the channel before I throw up

  perfidious: <morf> It is the same way here, along with <Point of Know Return> and <Dust in the Wind>, or the hard rock station which plays the same 8-10 tracks of Led Zeppelin (amongst other groups) as if no other music by that band has ever existed.

  morfishine: <perfidious> I guess we can only choose our own music, play it, enjoy it, and ignore anything external
Mar-01-17  Saniyat24: Is Spassky's record solid in this line?
Mar-01-17  Saniyat24: ...and what a dramatic ending by Keres...!
Mar-01-17  Retireborn: <Saniyat24> He achieved a couple of draws, but has been more often seen on the White side of this variation, with mixed results eg

Spassky vs Tal, 1979

Spassky vs Ribli, 1980

Mar-01-17  sudoplatov: The position after 9... c5 is important for the theory of the Queen's Gambit and other opens that transpose into it. Sometimes the same position occurs but with the Black QN on c6. White has e2 for the Queen but Black lacks a corresponding square. The natural square c7 may run into a White Rook on c1. However here, Keres develops the Rook on d1 to push d5. White has the initiative in a symmetrical position.
