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.
“Nut Rocker” by B. Bumble & The Stingers was Number One on 19th May 1962 and stayed there for one week only.
B. Bumble and the Stingers were an American instrumental ensemble in the early 1960s, who specialized in making rock and roll arrangements of classical melodies. However, any listeners of BBC Radio One will recognise this as something completely different!
