EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘On the Rebound’ – Floyd Cramer

What was the number one song in the UK on 18th May 1961?

By Hayley Beasley Dye

American pianist, Floyd Cramer, was number one for 1 week with On the Rebound.

This is a very uptempo piano based instrumental tune and I like it a lot. It has many layers to it, the piano, finger clicking, bass guitar, strings and a little ooh-ing and aah-ing from backing vocalists. It’s a neat, succinct track and I can see what it, albeit briefly, hit the top spot.


There are none!
