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.

Living Doll” by Cliff Richard & The Drifters was Number One on 1st August 1959 and stayed there for six weeks.

The first of many songs to come from Sir Cliff in this series, I’m sure. Doing this really is educational for me as I’ve just learned that Cliff’s backing band whom I always knew as The Shadows were originally called The Drifters but had to change their name as they were about to be sued by the American group with the same name!
