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.

The Man From Laramie” by Jimmy Young was Number One on 15th October 1955 and stayed there for four weeks.

Taken from the film of the same name this is one of those songs that tell a good story and it chugs along like a train. Very cowboy!
