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.

“Diamonds” by Jet Harris & Tony Meehan was Number One on 2nd February 1963 and stayed there for three weeks.

I got excited for a second as Jet Harris from The Shadows went solo and made a record with someone else. Oooh, a singer – I thought. Nope, it was a drummer and there are still no words…



OMG – Pft me…
