The problem in US politics today is that it is no longer a Right/Left
thing, or a Conservative/Liberal thing, or even a Republican/Democrat
thing, but rather an Insane/not-Insane thing.

(And no, there's no way you can spin this into any confusion about
who's who...)

Gogi Grant, rock vocalist? Now, that's funny. She was a pop singer, torch singer, not rock.
When I put together a list of "one-hit wonders", people whose only appearance in
the Billboard Top 40 was a #1 single, Gogi Grant (with "Wayward Wind") was the
earliest name on this list...I later decided to take her off because she'd had
lesser hits before the 1956 cutoff I'd used as a starting point...(I similarly
had to axe Terry Jacks for "Seasons in the Sun" because he'd earlier been part
of the Poppy Family)....

Ultimate one-hit wonder turned out to be Debby Boone...ten weeks at #1 with "You
Light Up My Life", and not another thing in the top 40, before or since....r

When I put together a list of "one-hit wonders",
I have spent literally years searching to no avail for a one-hit wonder,
between the years 1983-1995, that was eerie and kind of techno, but slow
and high-pitched. Male. The words in the lyrics said something about
"the blue hour", or a kind of weird, out-of-time-and-space sung in a
dreamy, haunting way. Definitely not rock or ballad or disco or
obviously techno. It seemed to me to come from a gay scene in New York,
(not that I'm aware that it did, but there was something about it that
was definitely not main-stream).

I just loved that damn song and I cannot find it. Does any of it ring a
bell? I'm sorry to bug you about this obsession but I've tried to
analyze the OHW lists from Billboard and didn't get anywhere and you are
the only other person who would even know what I'm talking about.

That's it!!! How did you do that? :-) I can only blame it on either
myself or the Google algorithims. Unbelievable and I'm glad I asked.
It's part of a very specific time in my life, a moment, really. Perhaps
they're not OHW but I never knew them beyond this song. Thank you very
much.

I can't find anything at all on them, apart from some import vinyl at Amazon of
this and a handful of other tunes...scanned Billboard and as far as US charts
are concerned they're a no-hit wonder....r

As you doubtless found, the lyric hook gave too many results. I guessed
it may have been a dance record, so I added 12" to the search in
addition to the title and the year.

Glad you found it! I have a spotify playlist for those half-remembered
songs, so I understand the search.

Not familiar to me, but Wikipedia has a list of songs with some

Famous Birthdays on 20th September
1486 - Arthur, Prince of Wales, son of King Henry VII of England (d. 1502)
Arthur died while on honeymoon at Ludlow Castle, just after marrying
Catherine of Aragon, leaving the way open for his brother Henry to eventually
become Henry VIII (and to marry Catherine).
The world would probably have been a very different place if he'd lived.
