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.

“Kon-Tiki” by The Shadows was Number One on 7th October 1961 and stayed there for one week.

Sometime I think that if you’ve heard one song by The Shadows then you’ve heard them all. Now, if the introduced some words it might be a little different. I know that defeats the purpose of it being an instrumental but hey – just get Cliff to sing, okay!


OMG – Pft me…
