EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘It’s Not Unusual’ – Tom Jones

What was the number one song in the UK on 11th March 1965?

Welsh heart-throb Tom Jones, was number one for 1 week with It’s Not Unusual.

After the monstrosity that was The Seekers, it’s a welcome relief to listen to a bit of Sir Tom. Little fact for you, It’s Not Unusual was originally intended for Sandie Shaw, but when she heard Tom’s demo of it, she turned it down recommended that Tom released it himself. It’s an incredibly upbeat tune that could cheer up the most downbeat of folks. Also, can we talk about Tom’s vocals at the end of the track? Marvellous. No wonder he was Carlton’s hero.


It’s not unusual to be loved by anyone
It’s not unusual to have fun with anyone
But when I see you hanging about with anyone
It’s not unusual to see me cry, I wanna die
It’s not unusual to go out at any time
But when I see you out and about it’s such a crime
If you should ever want to be loved by anyone
It’s not unusual it happens every day no matter what you say
You’ll find it happens all the time
Love will never do what you want it to
Why can’t this crazy love be mine?
It’s not unusual to be mad with anyone
It’s not unusual to be sad with anyone
But if I ever find that you’ve changed at anytime
It’s not unusual to find out I’m in love with you
