(Sept. 25, 2015) — CBS4 This Morning celebrated “National One Hit Wonder Day,” commemorated annually to remember artists who had mega hits…and weren’t heard from again.

CBS4 Meteorologist Lindsay Riley offered up a perfectly acceptable option, “Electric Avenue” from Eddy Grant, which was one of the biggest hits of 1983. But then she got a little confused.

“You hear it at every wedding, so it’s super popular,” she says to befuddled coworkers Tim Doty, Marianne Lyles and Nicole Pence.

“You hear ‘Electric Avenue’ at weddings?” Tim asks.  Nicole and Marianne quickly agree–they’d never heard the song at a wedding.

“Isn’t there like a group dance to this song?” Lindsay asks.

Then everyone realizes she’s actually talking about the “Electric Slide” as Lindsay tries valiantly to get through her forecast.
