60 years of UK Christmas No.1s (1952 - 2012)

(1985 - 1987)

It's Christmas no.1's time!


I haven't posted these songs for a couple of years and it's the 60th anniversary of the beginning of the UK charts. The UK charts started in 1952 and the Christmas No1 of 1952 was also the very first No.1 song in the charts.

I love Christmas No1s and have collected them over the years on 78, vinyl and CD. 

I've tried to find original video footage where possible but obviously a lot of the TV footage of the early ones has been destroyed or lost.

so here are the next 3 UK Christmas no1s -



Shakin Stevens - Merry Christmas Everyone
1985




Jackie Wilson - Reet Petite
1986




The Pet Shop Boys - Always On My Mind
1987
