Greatest One Hit Wonders of Rock: “Children of the Sun” by Billie Thorpe

If you dig deep, you’ll find that Billy Thorpe, AKA Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs, is an Australian pop music act that had some success with a few cover songs. The most notable being “Poison Ivy” that actually trumped the Beatles cover of the same song on the music charts.

Billy Thorpe is most known for his “Children of the Sun” rock opera that tells a tale of UFOs. This song has made more than one list of Top Ten Best songs including Top Ten Best Songs of the Seventies and Top Ten Songs about UFOs. You will find this song on another of my lists: Ten songs that featured orchestras.

Billy Thorpe offers amazing vocals in this song. Those of you that have heard it admit it has a mesmerizing quality. Definitely deserving of accolades; this is an awesome one hit wonder. I’m a bit sad that much of his other music didn’t achieve the wide spread appeal that this song did.
