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.

“What Do You Want” by Adam Faith was Number One on 5th December 1959 and stayed there for three weeks.

This is the shortest song to ever reach the Number One slot on the UK charts. Adam sadly died in 2003 and his last words, hilariously, were reported to be ““Channel 5 is all shit, isn’t it? Christ, the crap they put on there. It’s a waste of space” – well he did have a point!
