What was the number one song in the UK on 25th August 1960?
By Hayley Beasley Dye
English instrumental band The Shadows were number one for 5 weeks with Apache.
So here’s The Shadows doing their thing without their mate Cliff. If you haven’t heard this classic instrumental track, then I would like a written explanation as to why from your mother by close of play today. The American western vibe of this tune will have you imagining stand-offs between cowboys and smokin’ guns. It’s actually quite a simple tune, but catchy nonetheless. Though having said that, I do start to get bored of it after listening to it for a minute.
