A modern one-hit wonder!
Plain White T’s is an American pop/rock band who had the most success with their song Hey There Delilah, charting at #1 in many countries during 2007.
Using a very persistent marketing technique, Hey There Delilah was pushed for over two years before it was finally #1.
In the end, the song ended up carrying the promotion of two albums on its shoulders. First, on the album All That We Needed, then re-released on Every Second Counts.
The latter recording had a string section added to the one acoustic guitar arrangement. It is this version that achieved daily radio play in most countries in the world for a few months in 2007.
Time magazine decided that it should be at #7 on their list of songs of 2007. They added that “the concept of an aching guy reaching out to a distant girl felt fresh”.
