EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Do You Mind?’ – Anthony Newley

What was the number one song in the UK on 28th April 1960?

By Hayley Beasley Dye

Anthony Newley is here again, this time with Do You Mind? which was number one for 1 week.

I mean…am I missing something? I’m struggling to understand why Anthony Newley was so successful. I find his music quite tedious and his voice uninteresting. If I tried really hard to be positive, I’d say it’s intriguing that the beginning of the song starts off with just his (dull) voice and finger clicks, but the song just progresses into just another yawn inducing Anthony Newley tune. Soz mate.

Lyrics

“If I say I love you do you mind
Make an idol of you do you mind
If I shower you with kisses
If I tell you honey this is
How I think of heaven do you mind
I want to whisper, whisper sweet nothings in your ear
Nothings that are meant for my love alone to hear
So then
If I say I love you do you mind
Make an idol of you do you mind
If I shower you with kisses
If I tell you honey this is
How I think of heaven do you mind
I want to whisper, whisper sweet nothings in your ear
Nothings that are meant for my love alone to hear
So then
If I say I love you do ya mind baby
Make an idol of you do you mind
If I shower you with kisses
If I tell you honey this is
How I think of heaven do you mind
Do you mind
Do you mind
Honey do you mind”
