Every UK Number One Song: She Wears Red Feathers

51d1k4sVZYL._SL500_AA280_“She Wears Red Feathers” by Guy Mitchell was Number One on 14th March 1953 and it remained at number one for 4 weeks.

When I was first putting together my playlist, this song was playing all the time and I actually did work in a bank at the time – not a London Bank, however. I also didn’t wear red feathers or a hooly, hooly skirt (well not at work anyway).

It’s probably the first of these number ones that is fairly upbeat and not the standard “gramophone record” and after watching the video I think that Guy was possibly the Robbie Williams of his day…
