What was the number one song in the UK on 12th September 1953?

By Steve McSteveface

“Look At That Girl ” by Guy Mitchell was Number One on 12th September 1953 and it remained at number one for 6 weeks. Another great number one from the cheeky chappy who brought us “She Wears Red Feathers”

His songs are just so happy it makes me wish I was born in those days – he’s quite clearly having the time of his life…

Look at That Girl was written by Bob Merrill and produced by Mitch Miller.

Alberto Semprini, on piano with rhythm accompaniment, recorded it on October 13, 1953 as the third song of the medley “Dancing to the piano”.

Lyrics

“Look at the girl, she’s like a dream come true 
Ah look at that girl, can blue eyes be so blue 
Look at the way she walks, listen when she talks 
With each word my heart just skips 
Oh if I could kiss those lips 
Mmmm 
Look at that girl, you see what I see

Oh look at that girl, she’s walking straight to me 
That’s right, last night I held her tight 
Ho ho it happens all the time 
I look at that girl, and I can’t believe she’s mine 

(Look at the girl, she’s like a dream come true)

I don’t believe it they’re making it up 
(Look at that girl can blue eyes be so blue) 
But if I’m dreaming please don’t wake me up 
Just look at the way she walks 
Listen when she talks 
With each word my heart just flips 
Oh if I could kiss those lips 

Look at that girl, do you see what I see 
Look at that girl 
She’s walking straight to me 
That’s right, last night I held her tight 
It happens all the time 
I look at that girl, and I can’t believe she’s mine”
