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.

Memories Are Made of These” by Dean Martin was Number One on 18th February 1956 and stayed there for four weeks.

This is yet another song that has stood the test of time and is still played constantly.

I am really enjoying writing this series as I am finding out exactly who performed songs that I’ve known all my life. By the end of this I’m sure I could win a Music Mastermind competition!
