Nik Kershaw has released 8 studio albums, 27 singles, collaborated with the likes of Elton John, Kim Wilde and Michael W. Smith. Yet, in the US he's considered a one-hit wonder, and barely a hit at that.
The song "Wouldn't It Be Good" appeared in the iconic 80s movie Pretty in Pink and VH1 listed at No. 88 in the top 100 one-hit wonders of the 80s, but despite being a top 5 hit in many European countries, it peaked at No. 46 in the U.S.
Nik Kershaw is 55 today.
