What do "Baby Got Back," "I Can't Wait," and "Stacy's Mom" have in common? They're all one-hit wonders. In honor of "One-Hit Wonder Day," Billboard staff each selected their favorite track that qualifies -- loosely -- as a one-hit wonder. Check out the picks below.

Fountains of Wayne, "Stacy's Mom"
This song is basically The Cars' "Just What I Needed" and Rick Springfield's "Jessie's Girl" put together. It got big when I was a sophomore in high school, and I think I was feeling some intense secondhand '80s nostalgia. -- Chris Payne
