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.
Welcome to 1963! “Bachelor Boy” by Cliff Richard & The Shadows was the first new Number One of the year on 5th January 1963 and stayed there for three weeks.
Good old Cliff! He’s certainly stayed true to his word and has stayed a “bachelor boy”. Well, he did say until his “dying day” but he is still alive. Although it might just be a matter of time as all the celebrities I grew up with are starting to drop like flies. Hold on Cliff, hold on!
