Mary’s Boy Child

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.

Mary’s Boy Child” by Harry Belafonte was Number One on 23nd November 1957 and stayed there for seven weeks and no surprise it was the Christmas Number One of this year.

When it was cold outside, snow was falling and everyone was laughing around the tree. Maybe that never actually happened and I’m getting confused with old movies but I can dream…
