  • 'Lovers of today' tops for me
  • after this many years of knowing only "Another Girl Another Planet" i've finally decided to investigate their other records and they were pretty great! A shame they're known as one-hit wonders when they clearly were more than that.
  • The Only Ones aren't one hit wonders. It's just that 'Another Girl, Another Planet' is clearly one of the best songs ever written, whereas most of their songs are simply superb. Having said that 'Whole of the Law' is another of the best songs ever written.
  • I can't believe Another Girl, Another Planet is from 1978, it sounds like something between Blur and Ash...
  • Their Lead Singer looks like Marc Bolan!
  • Another Girl Another Planet wasn't even a hit. It was a brilliant flop that just kept going and going. It's a shame people don't listen to their other stuff though.
  • "i used to reach for the stars, but now i've reformed. she's out there somewhere..."
  • Wish people knew the difference between one hit wonders and long running bands that have one hit that's hugely more (commercially) successful than the rest of there discography.
  • Baby's got a gun is one of the great tracks
  • One-hit wonder my arse! They had a hit with "Another Girl, Another Planet" and "Another Girl Another Planet" [2']
