It’s the 21st ... now can ask this.

No.18) WIM by MC

(Was thinking this was Walking in Memphis by Marc Cohn ?
But as far as I can see it was never actually a hit at all so not a one hit wonder so seems out of sorts with all other 39 questions.)

How are they defining 'hit'? Top 20? Top 40? And UK charts or US?

This recording charted at 66 in the UK on its first release and at 22 on its re-release.
It was also a top 10 hit in the USA

I had assumed that was what the song and artist were

Thanks to you both .will go with that answer
(but not convinced it fits the criteria for a “ one hit wonder “ which is the quiz theme)
"Walking in Memphis" reached number 13 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1991, becoming Cohn's only top-forty hit on the chart. The song reached number three in Canada, number seven in Ireland, and number 11 in Australia.
His only top 40 hit.
one hit wonder:
"In The Billboard Book of One-Hit Wonders, music journalist Wayne Jancik defines a one-hit wonder as "an act that has won a position on [the] national, pop, Top 40 record chart just once."
