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-a-Billy – Guy Mitchell” by Guy Mitchell was Number One on 18th May 1957 and stayed there for one week only.

Guy certainly never spent much time writing this chorus but just as these days it’s the songs with the least amount of words are the most catchy. All together now – rockabilly, rockabilly, rockabilly rock…
