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.

“Are You Lonesome Tonight” by Elvis Presley was Number One on 28th January 1961 and stayed there for four weeks.

It was written in 1926, and this version has since become one of the best-selling singles of all time.


This video which uses the song always makes me laugh.


OMG – Pft me…
