Rock Around The Clock

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.

Rock Around the Clock” by Bill Haley & His Comets was Number One on 26th November 1955 and stayed there for two weeks.

This, I think, was the birth of rock & roll. Everyone knows this song, everyone had “rocked around the clock” and least once in their life. Music would never be the same from this moment.

Come on – get your glad rags on!
