I have a playlist that contains every UK number one song since charts began in 1952. Thanks to EveryHit, this is a fairly simple process. Let’s remind ourselves of these songs.

“Hey Joe” by Frankie Laine was Number One on 24th October 1953 and it remained at number one for 2 weeks. Now this is a fast paced, choo-choo train type of a song. I’m not sure who “Joe” is but Frankie seems to like him.

Have a listen, it’s 2 minutes of pure nostalgia from an different time altogether…
