"Fool #1" is a song written by Kathryn R. Fulton and performed by Brenda Lee.[1] The song reached No.3 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No.38 in the UK (where it was entitled "Fool No.1", because the # symbol was not synonymous with the word 'number' for British audiences) in 1961.[2] The song also reached No.23 in Australia. The song was featured on Lee's 1962 album, Brenda, That's All.[3]

The single's B-Side, "Anybody But Me", reached No.31 on the Billboard Hot 100.[4]
