EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘It’s Over’ – Roy Orbison

What was the number one song in the UK on 25th June 1964?

By Hayley Beasley Dye

Roy’s back after several years absence from the top spot with It’s Over, which was at number one for 2 weeks.

The marching beat of It’s Over and Roy’s heart felt vocals lead to its popularity. However, I’m not a fan. I find it a quite tiring song and its brevity was quite frankly a relief. You could say, I am glad when it’s over….


Your baby doesn’t love you any more
Golden days before they end
Whisper secrets to the wind
Your baby won’t be near you any more
Tender nights before they fly
Send falling stars that seem to cry
Your baby doesn’t want you any more
It’s over
It breaks your heart in two, to know she’s been untrue
But oh what will you do? then she said to you
There’s someone new we’re through we’re through
It’s over it’s over it’s over
All the rainbows in the sky start to even say goodbye
You won’t be seeing rainbows any more
Setting suns before they fall, echo to you that’s all that’s all
But you’ll see lonely sunset after all
It’s over it’s over it’s over it’s over
