TRIVIA: Most Near-Misses For A UK Top 40 Chart Hit
How many times do you try to get a chart hit, but fail?
Ask Welsh band Gorky’s Zygotic Mynci, formed in 1991 and disbanded in 2006, they NEVER made the UK Top 40 but have entered the Top 50 on five occasions. Their nearest miss was with “Patio Song” in 1996, which reached No.41. Three of their other singles have peaked at numbers 42, 43 and 49. Nevermind guys.
