What was the number one song in the UK on 31st January 1963?
British instrumental duo, Jet Harris and Tony Meehan, were number one for 3 weeks with Diamonds.
Oh Jeez, Jet & Tony are one half of The Shadows, so I’m really not feeling this first part of 1963, guys. From Cliff to The Shadows to these guys. However, I actually much prefer this track to the previous number one offering from The Shadows. It’s actually got a lot of variety within it and uses many different musical instruments. It’s got the annoying Shadows-esque bass guitar in it, but apart from that it’s a lot more enjoyable to listen to than The Shadows.
There aren’t any!
