EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Somebody Help Me’ – The Spencer Davis Group

What was the number one song in the UK on 14th April 1966?

The Spencer Davis Group are here again at the number one spot, this time with Somebody Help Me, which stayed there for 2 weeks.

The follow up to Keep On Running, is a gloriously catchy tune very typical of the British sound from this era. It’s not quite in the same league as Keep On Running, but it’s bouncy melody and simple lyrics will ensure it will be an earworm for you for the rest of the day.

Lyrics

Somebody help me, yeah
Somebody help me now
Won’t somebody tell me
What I’ve done wrong?
When I was just
A little boy of seventeen
I had a girl
She was my queen
She didn’t love me like I loved her
Now I know
Now I’m so lonesome, on my own
Somebody help me, yeah
Somebody help me now
Won’t somebody tell me
What I’ve done wrong?
I need someone in my life
I need a girl to hold me tight
Someone who can make me feel
Make me feel all right
Somebody help me, yeah
Somebody help me now
Won’t somebody tell me
What I’ve done wrong?
Somebody help me, yeah
Somebody help me now
Somebody help me, yeah
Somebody help me now
Somebody help me, yeah
Somebody help me now
