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.

Roulette” by Russ Conway was Number One on Number One on 20th June 1959 and stayed there for two weeks.

This song reminds me of being in the Blackpool Winter Gardens when I went on holiday when I was younger. I can just see all the old ladies and men sitting in their deckchairs tapping their feet along to this tune!
