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.

“Why” by Anthony Newley was Number One on 6th February 1960 and stayed there for four weeks.

What a lovely song and a nice gentle way to lead us into the swinging Sixties. It’s kind of like eating your favourite dessert…
