Continuing the series on UK one-hit wonders with the Swinging Sixties! I've marked the songs I personally recall hearing in italics. I've also included the date they charted, and the highest position (in brackets).
Note that on some weeks, there were 2 or 3 different artists listed with the same song. This is not a mistake - it was not particularly unusual in the '50s and '60s for different cover versions to chart simultaneously.
As with the other lists, if you think of any I might have missed from this decade, let me know here. Please drop me a note too if any bring back memories from film soundtracks, parents' collections or, if you're old enough, first time around! :^)
Ok, here we go:
12-Feb-60The Big Hurt
10-Mar-60Looking High High High
10-Mar-60Theme From a Summer Place
24-Mar-60Mean to Me
28-Apr-60Lonely Man Theme
28-Apr-60Standing On The Corner
