1960s Top 40 Rate

Number 1s

While there were several different UK singles charts during the 1960s (with the NME weekly chart being the most widely followed), the Guinness Book Of Hit Singles and, subsequently, the Official Charts Company use the Record Retailer chart as their reference during this period, so that's the one we'll be using here. (The most famous "injustice" being The Beatles' Please, Please Me being knocked down as a No.2, when it was a number one in all the other charts at the time). The 'Official' Singles Charts, as we know it, didn't begin until February 1969.

These series of rates will cover March 1960 (when the chart expanded to a Top 40 for the first time) to December 1969.


Below is a chronological list of all the singles which peaked at No.1 in the UK during the 1960s. Rate your faves, and the winner will go through to the final Ultimate Top 40 (where it will join the best No.1, No.2 etc).

Five of The Beatles' 17 chart toppers fail to score anything (including some, I would argue, of their most famous No.1s. Plus, their highest placed entry here may surprise you). Two of Rolling Stones' eight No.1s fail to score a single point. Only one solitary Cliff No.1 scrapes in. But perhaps, the biggest surprise is that ALL of Elvis' 60s No.1s got nothing at all! The Everly Brothers got no points either. And neither did...erm...Engelbert, Ken, Des and Rolf.
