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.

Nominated for Best Song and Best Vocal Performance at the 2008 Grammy Awards, Hey There Delilah only lost out to Amy Winehouse and Maroon 5.

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”.
