65 years of UK Christmas No1s - 1958

Conway Twitty - Its Only Make Believe
1958


"It's Only Make Believe" is a song written by Jack Nance and Conway Twitty and released by Twitty as a single in July 1958. The single topped both U.S. and the UK Singles Chart, and was Twitty's only number one single on the pop charts of either country. It is believed that Twitty wrote his part of the song while sitting on a fire escape outside his hotel room, to escape the summer heat, in Hamilton, Ontario.




I bought this single in 1993 from a local record collectors shop for £1.
