Most likely one hit wonder - Fun vs Gotye vs Carly?
Which is most likely to be their only ever substantial hit?
Gotye - Somebody that I used to know
Carly rae Jepsen - Call me maybe
Fun - We are young
I'd be surprised if any have another noticeable hit but I think Gotye's song is so unusual that it will be hard for him to tap into the same market with another song. It's just got that one off hit feel about it.
I honestly think all of them have a chance at getting more hits.
I don't know any other Carly Rae songs, but I imagine there's some more depth there.
Fun. will definitely be getting another hit or two from this album if their label plays their cards right.
Gotye's album is so good, so it's quite possible, but he's the least likely to become a name in the US. The song is so different from everything else on the charts (in a good way) and from everything else on his album (it's varied) that I can't see people warming up to his other potential hits the same way. He COULD cultivate a niche on alternative radio very easily. Examples:

I also know the Locomotive song, and of course Timeboob
Fun.'s label should really take advantage of the success of WAY.
It's on its way to becoming the biggest hit of 2012. When was the last time an artist had the biggest hit of the year but didn't follow it up with another successful hit? The next single should at least ride off the success of WAY.
