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.

“Telstar”  by The Tornados was Number One on 6th October 1962 and stayed there for five weeks.

An instrumental song about a satellite with a fun fact – “Knights of Cydonia“, a 2006 song by rock band Muse, was influenced by “Telstar”. Lead guitarist and vocalist Matthew Bellamy is the son of The Tornados’ rhythm guitarist, George Bellamy.


OMG – Pft me…
