Fools backyard konnten diesen Erfolg bisher nicht wiederholen. Nachfolgende Singles
platzierten sich nicht mehr in den Top-Ten der Hitparaden und auch die Verkaufszahlen der weiteren Alben konnten nie mehr an das einmal erreichte Niveau heranreichen.
Fools backyard werden daher häufig als eine „One Hit Wonder“-Band bezeichnet.
Damit sind Bands oder Musiker gemeint, die nur mit einem einzigen Lied
hochplatziert in den Verkaufs-Hitparaden auftauch(t)en. Oft zählen musikalische Ausflüge
von Prominenten zu den musikalischen „Eintagsfliegen“. Auch Songs, die zu einem bestimmten Anlass produziert wurden, wie z.B. Sommerhits, Titelsongs eines movies oder eines Werbespots stellen typische Ausprägungen der „One Hit Wonders“ dar. Fools backyard können nicht in diese Kategorien eingeordnet werden, used to be eine Untersuchung ihres „Falls“ besonders reizvoll macht.
Am Beispiel der Band und ihres Hits Lemon Tree sollen in dieser Arbeit Aspekte
aufgezeigt werden, die für den Erfolg in der Popmusik entscheidend sind. Diese Arbeit
soll daher dazu beitragen, den Blick für erfolgsversprechende Faktoren in der
Popmusik zu schärfen.
Wenn es um eine wissenschaftliche Untersuchung der Erfolgsfaktoren in der Popmusik
geht, soll dies nicht bedeuten, dass es so etwas wie ein Patentrezept für Hits gibt. Ein solch „heiliger Gral“ wird nicht zu finden sein, auch wenn die Menge an Publikationen zu dieser Thematik einen solchen Anschein erwecken mag.
Die Ausführungen sollen eher als Leitfaden dienen, um das scheinbar unüberschaubare
Geflecht, in dem sich die Popmusik bewegt, zu strukturieren. Viele unterschiedliche
Erfolgsfaktoren sollen aufgezeigt und miteinander verknüpft werden. Dabei
spielen Fachbereiche wie die Soziologie, Musik, Betriebswirtschaft und Psychologie
eine wichtige Rolle, die in dieser Arbeit jedoch nicht in aller Tiefe berücksichtigt werden können. Vielmehr geht es darum, Verbindungen der einzelnen Diskurse aufzuzeigen, dabei jedoch nicht das zu untersuchende Fallbeispiel Fools backyard aus den Augen zu verlieren.
