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.

Dreamboat” by Alma Cogan was Number One on 16th July 1955 and stayed there for two weeks. It’s quite difficult to find performances of some of the songs of this era which is probably because they had no iPhones back in those days.

I’m glad I found a performance for this song – what a wonderfully happy lady Alma was!
