UK Christmas no1s

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

Today we head into the 90's

First off we have Band Aid 2. This was the Stock/Atkin/Waterman production that is very rarely played. To the point that a lot of people don't know this version exists or that it reached no1. I found this record one of the harder singles to find because everyone was saying to me that they didn't know there was a Band Aid 2!!

Cliff hits the top at Christmas again. I loved this video because it's filmed at one of my most fav places in the UK - Durdle Door. It's on the south coast. There are actually signs up telling you not to walk on the path to the top as it's too dangerous but we did one afternoon and it wasn't the going up that was the problem it was the coming back down! I have never been so scared in my life! the path was about half the width of my foot, very slippy and had a hundred foot drop to one side! SCARY! But the little cove is so peaceful and the water is so clear and blue/green.

Queen hit the top again this Christmas just after Freddie died with a double A sided record and as I played Bohemian Rhapsody before I've chosen These are the days of our lives which Queen recorded in Freddies last few days to be released after he died.

Here's the next three songs;

Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody/These Are The Days Of Our Lives
1991




Cliff Richard - Saviours Day
1990




Band Aid 2 - Do They Know It's Christmas
1989
