EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Cinderella Rockerfella’ – Esther and Abi Ofarim

What was the number one song in the UK on 28th February 1968?

Israeli duo Esther and Abi Ofarim, were at number one for 3 weeks with Cinderella Rockerfella.

Oh my god, it’s THIS tune. I had no idea what it was actually called (can we just take a moment to appreciate the title Cinderella Rockerfella). However, it is possibly one of the most irritating tunes from the 60s. The warbling vocals of Esther are particularly irksome. They were on to something though, the tune is a classic ear worm. God help me for the rest of the day trying to get this monstrosity out of my brain. It’s a novelty song, nothing more, nothing less.
