Following on from our recent and successful number 1's poll, this is the 16th poll of a total of thirty in which i ask you to pick your `3` favourite UK number 2 singles from the golden years of 1960 - 1989.
Remember that you must select all '3' favourite choices in one go, you cannot vote for one or two then vote again for your third.
The poll ends Friday at 7.30pm. This is a hidden poll and the result will automatically be revealed at the end of the poll. You must be logged-in to vote.
THE POLL IS CLOSED.
Well i find it a very bland year with hardly anything to get excited about. Id say i had to resort to YouTube for 60% of these and even then they hardly jogged any memories. The only consolation, its a year out of the way. My 3 selections are a couple of Yanks and an Englishman.
I was born in September of that year so my memory of the ones even from the last quarter if the year is a bit hazy.
63 was the first year I got excited. Apparently I used to sit in my high chair singing Yeah, yeah, yeah! to the Beatles.
What this! I see a pair of horn blowing English Jazzmen at the top of this chart. Go Kenny! Go Acker! Pity I have decided not to choose either of them. Nor am I shouting Let’s Dance, for a memorable Pan’s routine in years to come. Neither have I stuck or twist with Chubby this year, though sorely tempted.
I am on train ride to the shop to trade in my green stamps for A drink, and hallucinate about the object of my desire. After plenty Tequila with Pat and Rosita, no doubt!
1962, is quite an interesting year. The Cuban Missile Crisis, the World Cup in Chile, Telstar for example. And pop culture was about to explode in many ways with the Beatles, Merseybeat and the like just waiting in the wings to take centre stage. Out with the old fogeys!
Mmmmmmm, jazz, nice. I thought there were some good ones here and only a couple I didn't recognise once YouTubed. Oddly, I've seen three of them in concert and have a few albums of two. Anyway, I went for two iconic British jazz men and a bloke with his Bruvvers.
