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.

Jailhouse Rock” by Elvis Presley  was Number One on 25th January 1958 and stayed there for two weeks.

The King again with the song that is #67 on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. He makes jail look like fun – if going to jail does actually result in all that singing and dancing around with other men then I’m off on a a crime spree first thing tomorrow!
