EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Kon-Tiki’ – The Shadows

What was the number one song in the UK on 5th October 1961?

By Hayley Beasley Dye

The Shadows are back with Kon-Tiki, which was number for one week.

This is a lazy, hazy, dreamy kind of guitar instrumental from The Shadows. Nice, if you like that kind of thing, but for me- I shall be using it to help me sleep tonight. Next!


There aren’t any!
