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.

Mambo Italiano” by Rosemary Clooney was Number One on 15th January 1955 and stayed there for one week only. Just to confirm what I have previously stated – this lady knows how to party. I can just see all Rosemary’s pals going round to “her ole house” and shaking their bootie to the mambo. I’m starting to think I was born in the wrong era…


I can remember this cover version of the song…


……now buy
