Here is the definitive (almost) list, in order, of every number one song in the UK for each week from January 1958 to the present according to the Official Charts.
A couple of notes: Where songs were not available in the Spotify library (like the Beatles, Adele, etc.) we inserted an alternate version of the song (with varying degrees of success...and we apologize for the abundance of Karaoke that we needed to use...we will update as songs become available). Also, we have included songs only once (even if they have appeared at the top of the charts for multiple weeks or if they moved in and out of the top position).
You can play in order or you can sort by artist to see which artists had the most hits. We will update this list on a periodic basis.
Finally, for those familiar with our companion, the <a href="http://sharemyplaylists.com/every-billboard-1-song-1958-present">U.S. Billboard playlist</a>, you will be surprised at how very different this list is from the U.S. version.
