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.
“Pretty Flamingo” by Manfred Mann was Number One on 7th May 1966 and stayed there for three weeks.
Another superb son from this band and although the lyrics are comparing a girl to a flamingo they do make more sense than Do Wah Diddy!
