Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to another beautiful weekend!

As usual, we're celebrating by putting together a playlist that we're planning on playing over the next two fantastically glorious days, and this weekend, we're all about one hit wonders.

Yes, you know the ones. You heard them once, they did well, now they're long gone. But never mind, because they've done well to make our list- so even if they couldn't quite manage two hit songs, at least they can give themselves a pat on the back for that, eh?

Typically, we've track listed this cheeky playlist underneath the player- so let us know what you think and drop us a tweet @masdings

1) Jimmy Eat World-The Middle- Jimmy Eat World were one of those awkward American bands that nestled between rock and pop in the late nineties/early noughties. Before you kick off, we know full well they had a lot of girly fans. A bit like an American Busted, if you like. Anyway, this was their breakthrough song, and it went pear shaped from here... shame really because this song is COOL.

2) Eagle Eye Cherry-Save Tonight- This guy's Swedish. Just take that in. Ok done that? We all know it, it's very catchy, it's very good, but it was the only thing this guy did of any notable quality. Gutted.

3) Mary Mary-Shackles (Praise You)- In true noughties style, Mary Mary are a "go get 'em girl" kind of all singing all song writing duo. Only thing is, they couldn't manage to write anything better than this...

4) ATC-All Around The World (la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la...) lalalalalalala. And so on. Annoyingly catchy, disturbingly from the year 2000, it's an openly German crazy disco tune. Love it.

5) Fountains of Wayne-Stacey's Mom- Stacey's mom has definitely got it going on. We remember this from the years when music channels ruled supreme, and performing in suits seemed to be one of the coolest things going. Oh how times change.

6) Eamon-F**k It- We all remember this don't we. The awkward song that led to Frankee releasing her retort to Eamon publicly slating her for cheating. Fair enough though mate, despite you subjecting us to weeks and weeks of listening to both of your terrible songs, we're still in your corner. Bet they're still arguing you know. Muppets.

7) J-Kwon- Tipsy- The anthem to every adolescent house party going, if you forget this song then you need to take a long hard look at yourself. It's ridiculous. It's crunk. It's awesome.

8) Charles & Eddie-Would I Lie To You?- WOW. Just WOW. A huge change in mood, a huge song, what a fantastic time we're having. YESS.

9) Deep Blue Something-Breakfast At Tiffany's-Awkward hair cuts, men walking through New York wearing dressing gowns, and terrible sunglasses. All made absolutely fine by an amazing song.

10) 3 of a Kind-Babycakes-Lads are going to love this video. But, we're all going to love this song thanks to it's grimy mix of London accentuated rap and a beat that sounds like it was ripped off from a So Solid Crew track. Enough said

11) DJ Pied Piper and the MC's-Do You Really Like It- This song's 12 years old. How depressing. Luckily, it sounds just as good as it did when it first came out. This UK garage group went on to release two other songs off the success of this, and they were both absolutely horrific. Case of quit whilst you're ahead, maybe.

12) The Knack-My Sharona- WHEN YA GONNA GIVE ME SOME TIMEEEEEE SHARONAAAAA? Anddd we're done.

13) Ini Kamoze-Here comes the hotstepper- Despite a fairly recent revival of this song, nothing beats the original. It's funky, it's daft, and it's just great.

14) Stardust-Music Sounds Better With You-This was the only song that Stardust ever did. Maybe they learnt the lesson that the Pied Piper decided to ignore... either way. It's not bad to say they're French...ouch

15) Sam Sparro-Black and Gold- 2008 this came out, in case you were wondering...

16) Luniz-I Got 5 On It- Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. You got 5 on it? Luniz has. However, it's the only thing he did have 5 on, because after this song, there was nothing else to actually bother putting 5 on...

17) Mario Winans-I Don't Wanna Know-Mario's going through a similar situation to our good pal Eamon (we've still got your back, buddy), but he's gone about things a touch differently. Instead of generally releasing a song about the girl he which he swears repeatedly at her, he went ahead and released a slightly morbid sounding song about him moaning. Maybe he never got cheated on again-hence the one hit wonder. He's lived and learnt! Winner. You go Mario.

18) Jet-Are You Gonna Be My Girl?- Australian rock band Jet look like an upside down version of The Libertine's, just no way near as cool or good. This one hit wonder may well have left them contemplating life whilst grilling up a barbie. But hey, at least it was good whilst it lasted boys? And let's face it, it was good.

19) Toploader- Dancing In The Moonlight- We're not going to bore you with any facts about this song. It's an amazing song, be happy about it. We certainly are.

20) Roger Sanchez-Another Chance- This guy still DJ's out in Ibiza. He's like your awkward uncle who still thinks he can dance. But what a way to end our playlist of one hit wonders, eh?

So, there you have it. One hit wonders. Where did they go? What did they do? We don't really care.

Have a top weekend boys and girls. Enjoy yourself. Be safe. And all that Jazzzz.
