If you hadn’t already guessed from the title, today is One Hit Wonder Day. We’ve all got our favourites and so, in honour of this special day, I’ve trawled the internet to find the ones which I think best match up to all the Cosy Tea flavours. Think of it as the wine accompaniments to a tasting menu for tea and cheesy music lovers.
Sixpence None the Richer – Kiss Me (1998)
Why? What goes better with a kiss beside the green, green grass than a cup of green tea? With its zesty flavours, Cosy Lemon Green is the perfect accompaniment to this Summery love song.
Carl Douglas – Kung Fu Fighting (1974)
Why? Becoming a master of the art of Kung Fu requires training, dedication, and most importantly, being fighting fit. Green tea has been reported to be a great addition to a healthy diet and with its Oriental jasmine flavours, a cup of Jasmine Green is a great start.
Dexy’s Midnight Runners – Come on Eileen (1983)
Why? Okay, okay, so Dexy’s Midnight Runners aren’t strictly speaking a one hit wonder considering this was their second number 1 in the UK, but this one was too good to leave out. With their denim dungarees (which happen to be very on trend these days) and neckerchiefs, I reckon this is a bunch who really enjoyed a cup of good old English Breakfast at the end of a long day of dancing in the street and too-ra-loo-rye-aye-ing.
Bobby McFerrin – Don’t Worry Be Happy (1988)
Why? Chamomile is the only option for this chilled out number. What would be more soothing than a warm cup of Cosy Chamomile as you listen to the words ‘don’t worry, be happy’ over and over (and over) again?
Daniel Powter – Bad Day (2006)
Why? We’ve all had ‘em, and for us Brits there is nothing on this earth more comforting than a cup of tea. With it’s refreshing taste and reported stimulating qualities, Peppermint tea is just the tonic to pep you up and turn that bad day around in no time.
Semisonic – Closing Time ( 1998)
Why? Closing time, one last call for alcohol…so it’s probably time to end the night with a nice cup of tea. Decaf that is, we don’t want you up all night.
Chumbawamba – Tubthumping (1997)
Rooibos with Vanilla
Why? Just like this strange sounding tune, Rooibos sounds a bit weird and you don’t think you’ve heard of it, but try it and you’ll realise just how delicious it is. If you’ve never listened to this song then you’re missing out.
Len – Steal My Sunshine (1999)
Why? This one’s especially relevant right now, as we say goodbye to those last rays of Summer sun (not that there were many to begin with). Luckily not all grey is bad, which I’m sure you’ll realise as soon as you try Cosy Earl Grey.
Eiffel 65 – Blue (Da Ba Dee) (1998)
Why? Because…I think you can work this one out on your own.
So there we have it folks, our perfect one-hit wonder playlist and the teas to drink while you’re listening to it. Now it’s over to you readers – what’s your favourite one-hit wonder and, most importantly, what do you like to drink while you’re listening to it?
