3. Dawn Penn, โ€œYou Don’t Love Me (No No No)โ€

Dawn Penn used to be a one-hit wonder in the truest sense, having disappeared from the music scene for nearly two decades after a short ’60s career that culminated in the Studio One classic “You Don’t Love Me” (a/k/a “No No No”). But then Penn re-emerged in the ’90s, and had a second, massive hit: this time with a new, dancehall-friendly version of her signature hit, produced by Steely & Clevie. Unlike your typical one-hit wonder, Penn has actually traveled in some new musical directions since re-emerging. But if all she ever did was put out another new version of the pitch-perfect “No No No” every other year, we wouldn’t mind at all.
