The 100 Greatest Number One Singles
30 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was quite a good countdown because there were many songs I was hoping would be number one. Presented by Graham Norton, this 100 Greatest list counted down the greatest number one singles, as voted by the public. Contributions by: Gloria Gaynor, Sir Bob Geldof, Jane Horrocks, Mark Kermode, Moby, Sinéad O'Connor, Yoko Ono, Lionel Richie, Fatboy Slim (Norman Cook), Kate Thornton and Pete Waterman. The songs: Frankie Lane's I Believe (record for 18 weeks), Soul II Soul's Back to Life (However Do You Want Me), Kylie's I Should Be So Lucky, Eurythmics' There Must Be An Angel, Elvis's Jailhouse Rock, Village People's YMCA, Travolta & Newton-John's You're The One That I Want, Bee Gee's Night Fever, Slade's Merry Xmas Everybody, Buggles' Video Killed The Radio Star, Wet Wet Wet's Love Is All Around (15 weeks), Roy Orbison's Oh Pretty Woman, Boyzone's No Matter What, Take That's Back for Good, Frankie Goes To Hollywood's Relax, Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas?, Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You, Fatboy Slim's Praise You, Louis Armstrong's What a Wonderful World, Gloria Gaynor's I Will Survive, Madonna's Like a Prayer, Robbie Williams' Millennium, Sinead O'Connor's Nothing Compares 2 U, Bryan Adams' (Everything I Do) I Do It For You (16 weeks), Spiller's Groovejet (If This Ain't Love), Oasis's Don't Look Back in Anger, Abba's Danicing Queen, The Beatles' Hey Jude, (could have been no. 1) Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody, and no. 1 John Lennon's Imagine. There were also the five most hated #1's: Britney's Baby One More Time, Sir Elton's Candle in the Wind, Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On, and no. 1 Spice Girls' Wannabe. Very good!
