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.

Why Do Fools Fall In Love” by Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers was Number One on 21st July 1956 and stayed there for three weeks.

Everyone knows this song – it’s a classic. These guys were the One Direction of their day and I challenge you to listen to this song without singing along. There’s also a quick interview before this performance which is worth watching…
