Hoots Mon

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.

Hoot’s Mon” by Lord Rockingham’s XI was Number One on 29th November 1958 and stayed there for three weeks.

With a rocked-up version of the traditional Scottish songA Hundred Pipers“, featuring mock Scottish cries like “Hoots mon, there’s a moose loose aboot this hoose!” I would say this is probably the first novelty record…
