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.
“Reach For The Stars” by Shirley Bassey was Number One on 23rd September 1961 and stayed there for one week.
Sadly, this is not the original version of a song later sang by S Club 7. It’s a much more chilled out affair and far less poppy from the Dame.
