What was the number one song in the UK on 17th May 1962?
American Instrumental ensemble B. Bumble and the Stingers, were number one for 1 week with Nut Rocker.
So, at first look at the title and artist, I thought that I didn’t have a clue about this tune. As it turns out, I do. It is in fact a rock ‘n’ roll piano version of the march from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. It’s an excellent and joyful take on a classical tune and is lots of fun.
There aren’t any!
