What was the number one song in the UK on 20th February 1959?

By Hayley Beasley Dye

Look who’s turned up, it’s our Shirley. Welsh warbler, Shirley Bassey was number one with As I Love You for 4 weeks.

This is a cute little song from Shirls. You can really hear the beginning of British pop music it. It’s an adorable, cheery love song and contains that distinct Bassey belt. While, I know we’re not quite there with the 60s yet, listening to this song, I’m slightly inspired to do some Austin Powers type dancing to it. Join in with me, why don’t you.

“As I Love You (More and More and More)” is a 1959 hit song by Shirley Bassey with Wally Stott & His Orchestra, written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans for the Universal International Picture The Big Beat (1958).

Lyrics

“I will love you, as I love you, all my life
Every moment spent with you
Makes me more content with you
Just as you are, you are all I could pray for
All that you are, that’s what I wake up each day for

Every single touch and tingle I adore
Every kiss from you to me
Always seems so new to me
Each one warmer than the one before
As I love you more and more and more

Every single touch and tingle I adore
Every kiss from you to me
Always seems so new to me
Each one warmer than the one before
As I love you more and more and more”
