Cameo as a one hit wonder? I Dont think so, because they generated much hits like Candy (#21 on billboard), Attack Me With Your Love, Back and Forth are famous too.
Since when was Dexys Midnight Runners a One Hit Wonder? Come on Eileen was gigantic, yes and for good reason, but what about Geno? Or There, There, My Dear? Or their cover of Jackie Wilson Said (I'm in Heaven When You Smile)? These were all pretty big. Don't even get me started on your inclusion of Midnight Oil.
I think I watched most of these in a day. I got pretty hooked to them
