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.
“Tell Laura I Love Her” by Ricky Valance was Number One on 1st October 1960 and stayed there for three weeks.
Ricky was the first Welshman to get to Number One with this song about Laura and Tommy. Listen to the lyrics – it’s a beautifully sad story.
