Every UK Number One Song: I Want To Hold Your Hand

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.

“I Want To Hold Your Hand” by The Beatles was Number One on 14th December 1963 and stayed there for five weeks.

This was the Christmas number one of that year and what a great sentiment to have at the festive period. Usually, for me, at this time of year I would need someone to hold my hand to get me up off the floor after falling over drunk but hey ho…

One of the first Beatle’s CDs I owned had a version of this song in German so now everytime I hear it I always hear it in German too.


OMG – Pft me…
