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.
“Sailor” by Petula Clark was Number One on 25th February 1961 and stayed there for one week.
Petula is 82 years old and she looks amazing! This was her first number one hit and she sold more than 68 million records during her career.
This song was originally a song recorded in German and, in my opinion, the German language just doesn’t sing very well. This version sounds so much harsher and it sounds as if she is singing about semen and I much prefer Petula’s version.
