Crap - that's what happens when we don't agree! A whole load of songs go! Shame we lost Beautiful South, but glad one or two overpredictable songs left with it (such as the huge Kylie hit). Sorry guys, but I'm going after some of the other female soloists.

15. Dusty Springfield - You Don 't Have To Say You Love Me
22. Barry White - You¹re The First, The Last, My Everything
26. Gloria Gaynor - I Will Survive

Maybe a misleading title because it should have "Best UK No. 1 Singles in the World... Ever" If it was that, then that would easily explain why "We Belong Together" wasn't included, as it stalled at No. 2 over here ;-)
