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.

“Mack The Knife” by Bobby Darin was Number One on 17th October 1959 and stayed there for two weeks.

One of the most popular big band songs as far as I’m concerned – I’m actually swinging along as I type! However, be warned, this song is about a man named Mackie Messer who is know for his robberies, murders, rapes, and arson…
