I've never said he did set the world alight?
What I have said is seeing as he had more than one number single at that time. He was not a one hit wonder as implied because a one hit wonder wouldn't have had a further two number ones?
And I agree yes when people think of Peters pop career they think of mysterious girl, the same way when people think of like you say b*witched they think of Cest la vie or Steps they think of Tragedy for example.
But he at least was famous for having a pop career
. Jordan was famous for all the wrong reasons.
I think it was more that he was seen as a bit of a joke by everyone other than his fans. Another washed up one hit wonder - even if he did have a couple more singles that no-one remembers now.
