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.

It Doesn’t Matter Anymore” by Buddy Holly was Number One on 25th April 1959 and stayed there for three weeks.

Sadly, in 1959 this made number one after Buddy’s death at the very young age of 22. Imagine how much different the music industry would have been had he not died so young…
