Every UK Number One Song: With A Little Help From My Friends

joe_cocker-with_a_little_help_from_my_friends-FrontalI want to review 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. 

“With A Little Help From My Friends” by Joe Cocker was Number One on 9th November 1968 and stayed there for one week.

This is such a powerful, emotional song and compared to The Beatle’s version this has much more grit behind it.



Everytime I hear it I always feel very nostalgic, not because I remember it from its orignal release of course – it always reminds me of the brilliant TV show The Wonder Years.


Sadly Joe passed away in December 2014 – thanks for the voice Joe!
