EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘I Remember You’ – Frank Ifield

What was the number one song in the UK on 26th July 1962?

By Hayley Beasley Dye

English-Australian singer, Frank Ifield was number one for 7 weeks with I Remember You.

Gang, I’m here to tell you that this offering was the best-selling single of 1962. The very best. I’m also here to tell you that it is quite unbelievable that this song was held with such high regard. Frank’s voice is annoying, the harmonica is equally grating and the tune is unmemorable. Apart from that, yeah it’s great. Can we go back and listen to Ray Charles again please?

Lyrics

I remember you-ooh
You’re the one who made my dreams come true
A few kisses ago
I remember you-ooh
You’re the one who said I love you, too
Yes, I do, didn’tcha know?
I remember, too, a distant bell and stars that fell
Like the rain out of the blue-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo
When my life is through
And the angels ask me to recall
The thrill of it all
Then I will tell them I remember you-ooh
I remember, too, a distant bell and stars that fell
Just like the rain out of the blue-ooh-ooh-ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo
When my life is through
And the angels ask me to recall
The thrill of it all
Then I will tell them I remember, tell them I remember
Tell them I remember you
