Because if they did they would know that Vanessa Carlton is much more than a One-Hit Wonder.*
I take umbrage with this:
I mean they say it right there, there was a little song called “Ordinary Day,” which, as I recall, was no slouch.
And has Billboard never heard of “White Houses?” That song only went all the way to #1 in China. And here I thought Billboard was supposed to be the authority on music. Guess I was wrong. Guess it’s China.
Evidently Billboard wasn’t in my car when we rolled down the windows and blasted Vanessa Carlton while waiting on the Wendy’s drive-thru line at 1am all those times. Their loss.
The full list of alleged “One-Hit Wonders” of the 2000s.
*Her list of hits is even longer if you confuse her with Michelle Branch as I often did (do).
