  • My Top 100 UK # 1 Singles

    Record charts in the UK began in 1952, when Percy Dickins of the New Musical Express (NME) gathered a pool of 52 stores willing to report sales figures. For the first British chart Dickins telephoned approximately 20 shops, asking for a list the 10 best-selling songs. These results were then aggregated into a Top 12 chart published in NME on 14 November 1952, with Al Martino's "Here in My Heart" awarded the number-one position.

    According to the Official Charts Company's statistics, already more than 1,300 singles have topped UK singles chart.

    In late 2012 "Bohemian Rapsody" was named "Nations Favourite # 1 Single" . Elton John with "Candle In The Wind" sold 4.9 million copies in the UK, overtaking the 13-year-old record held by Band Aid's "Do They Know It's Christmas?". It has been certified as the best-selling single of all time in the UK. Frankie Laine spent 18 weeks at # 1 with "I Believe" in 1953.

    Which song will be my favourite UK # 1 single ?

    Any predictions are allowed.
    My celebrity crushes : Monika Sedziuviene, Kristina Ivanova (YVA).
    In my head I like to imagine LastDreamer in the land of Lithuania right now with a suitcase of simcards, a box of chocolates and a wedding ring. It would be a great base for an epic Eurovision fan fiction.

    Potentially a girl band?

        I like Berlin and Pretenders ones. "Saturday Night" is quite catchy.

              "Everytime" is beautiful, but "La Isla Bonita" is probably my favourite song so far.
