Notes[edit]

  1. ^ According to The Official Charts Company and the canonical sources, chronologically, which number one it was.[1]
  2. ^ NME is considered by The Official Charts Company as the canonical source for number-one singles from the charts' inception until 10 March 1960.[2] The names, singles and duration of the number-ones are taken from The Official Charts Company and from NME.[3][4]
  3. ^ The names, singles and duration of the number-ones are from the Record Mirror.[5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21][22][23][24][25][26][27][28]
  4. ^ Record Retailer is considered by The Official Charts Company as the canonical source for number-one singles from 10 March 1960 until 15 February 1969 when Retailer and the BBC jointly commissioned the British Music Record Bureau (BMRB) to compile the chart.[2] When BMRB started compiling the chart is generally regarded as the beginning of an official chart.[30][31][32] The names, singles and duration of the number-ones are taken from The Official Charts Company.
  5. ^ This number-one record was not a single but a double extended play (EP) with six tracks. Due to the low popularity of EPs in the United States, an album of the same name was released containing the six EP tracks and five singles from 1967.[33] The rules now require at most four distinct songs to be eligible for the UK Singles Chart.[34]
