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.
“Johnny Remember Me” by John Leyton was Number One on 2nd September 1961 and stayed there for three weeks.
What a stud! He had all the girls after him. He went on to become quite a successful actor and to this day John is still touring with his band.
John also recorded a version of “Tell Laura I Love Her” – one of the songs I am currently obsessed with – but there was a record label issue and it was withdrawn, sadly.
