Todd plays "Tic-Tac-Toe" on the piano

A one-hit wonder retrospective

Todd: Welcome back to One Hit Wonderland, where we take a look at bands and artists known for only one song. And I will admit, One Hit Wonderland is set up...

[A collage of shots of various one-hit wonder artists]
Todd (VO): ...mostly to explore the one-hit wonders that people still remember, not the ones...

Todd: ...who even their one song got forgotten. But every so often, I feel like reminding everyone that not every one-hit wonder stands the test of time. So, why don't we take a moment to explore this piece of ephemera I've picked up today, which... I just want to assure people that, yes, was in fact a real thing.

[Video for "Tic-Tac-Toe" plays while Todd just dances along]
Todd (VO): This guy is named Kyper and

this song is called tic-tac-toe yes it

was a hit it reached number 14 in the

autumn of 1990 and yes it's about

tic-tac-toe yes that's a metaphor for

sex yes it samples yes that is in fact a

sample of owner of a lonely heart by the

band yes and what else do I know about

this song not a goddamn thing I've

certainly never heard it played anywhere

I'm guessing almost none of you have

either I don't even remember how I came

across it but once I did hear it I've

never forgotten it I'm honestly just

kind of doing this for the episode as an

experiment to see if I can get an entire

video out of someone this obscure

because there's no interviews with the

guy not a lot of footage out there I am

flying blind folks hey if you like

really uncreated sampling such as was

popular in the 90s really basic rhyme

flows and sweet sweet dance moves well

I've got just the song for you

let's play some tic-tac-toe everyone

center square for the win
