I feel a bit cruel creating this list, but as usual, there were numerous cases in 2006 of artists who only created one song I liked. I'd get excited to hear their album and the find nothing else that popped. That is not to say these artists are one hit wonders don't have futures or that the CDs were not good... I just latched onto one track. Note that none of these made my "essential" mix, but I like them all a lot.
