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.

A Woman in Love” by Frankie Laine was Number One on 20th October 1956 and stayed there for four weeks.

He certainly was a popular man back in the fifties was Frankie boy. He passed  away in 2007 and the great age of 92 and was still performing right up to then. I hope I am in that state when I’m 92 and that I could carry off that hat and jacket as well as he does in the second clip.
