Every UK Number One Song: Spirit In The Sky

Norman_Greenbaum_Spirit_In_The_Sky_1024x1024I 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.

“Spirit In The Sky” by Norman Greenbaum was number one on 2nd May 1970 and stayed there for 2 weeks.

I love this song even although this was not my original introduction to the song. However, since hearing Norman’s version really appreciate it for different reasons.

 

My first version of this song was performed by Doctor & The Medics and for some strange memory reason reminds me of going to the swimming baths when I was a young boy – the mind boggles!

 

The third version I knew of was by the ever so cure Gareth Gates for Comic Relief. Here’s the live version…

 

And here’s the very funny video…
