Another record Bieber looks likely to break at this rate. I'm just glad it had those 2 weeks at #1.

Out of interest which ones here didn't get #1? I know Maroon 5, All-4-One & Frank Chacksfield didn't.

This seems an appropriate time to mention that Kittty Kallen died yesterday, aged 94.

Jo's 9 week's weren't consecutive, so the only two to make 8 consecutive weeks at 2 are Johnnie and Justin. Another record for Justin next Friday methinks, as well as becoming the first single to have it's first 20 weeks in the top7 (random stat from another thread lol)

Thank you for letting us know Suedehead. I wonder if she was aware of the recent resurgence in interest in her famous song, after it's use in ads, and what she made of it. I think the only surviving chartopping artists from the first half of the 50s are now Doris Day and Vera Lynn, unless there is still a surviving Stargazer.

Justin's aren't consecutive either! His chart run so far is 2-2-2-1-1-2-2-2-3-2-2 tongue.gif

Oops blush.gif

I could have sworn that someone on the chart thread had said that he had 8 consecutive weeks now, and didn't bother to check myself. I also assumed that was the reason for the creation of this thread and the bracketed proviso in the title.

I'll get me coat.......

Jimmy Young (two number ones in 1955) is still alive.

I was thinking first half of the 50s to be 50-54, but actually technically you're correct as decades (and centuries and milleniums) strictly speaking start on a year ending in 1. So yes Jimmy is on the list, but if we are including 1955 then we also have to put Tony Bennett on the list too, and I think Tony is the only one of these who's still musically active so to speak.

blush.gif blush.gif blush.gif I apologise to Kay, her family, friends and fans for inadvertently starting rumours of her death. It almost makes it worse that I had to slip-up on the lady who is actually the earliest of the surviving charttoppers.....

Also, Sally Sweetland (who featured on Eddie Fisher's 1953 #1 hit I'm Walking Behind You) is apparently still alive at 104.

Sally Sweetland is 104 years old and she duetted with Eddie Fisher on 'I'm Walking Behind You', #1 in May 1953. Easily the oldest living person ever to be #1!

yet another post to show the greatness of bieber - give it a rest.
atleast taylor's era was more enjoyable but bieber one is boring, predictable and fraud.
lost interest in official charts weeks ago.
