Spread the One Hit Wonder love

This Week’s One-Hit Wonder (OHW) is ‘Day Trip to Bangor’ by Fiddler’s Dram (#5 1980). The release was shrouded in controversy after reports that the song was actually inspired by a trip to Rhyl, another town in North Wales. It was rumoured that Bangor was chosen as the lyric due to it having an extra syllable that flowed better with the song. There were rumours of an outcry among local councillors and businesses in Rhyl about the missed opportunity for tourism which would have been generated. In Adelaide the song was parodied by radio personalities Bazz & Pilko with ‘Day Trip to Victor’ (Victor Harbor)
