He's often described as a OneHitWonder, though this isn't actually true. Two of his songs ("Werewolves of London" and a cover of "A Certain Girl") made the Billboard Hot 100 (and "Leave My Monkey Alone" got up to #12 on the Dance/Club list), two of his albums (''A Quiet Normal Life'' and ''The Wind'') went gold, and another (''Excitable Boy'') went platinum. He also won two UsefulNotes/{{Grammy Award}}s [[DeadArtistsAreBetter posthumously]]. These days, though, "Werewolves" [[NeverLiveItDown is all anybody remembers]].
