I'm having trouble narrowing down my top 10 favourite number one singles for Chig's project:

Searchers - Needles & Pins (1964)
Honeycombs - Have I the Right (1964)
Kinks - You really got me (1964)
Georgie Fame & the Blue Flames - Yeh Yeh (1965)
Jackie Trent - Where are you now (my love) (1965)
Sandie Shaw - Long live love (1965)
Walker Brothers - The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore (1966)
Foundations - Baby now that I've found you (1967)
Jane Birkin & Serge Gainsbourg - Je t'aime ... moi non plus (1969)
Bobbie Gentry - I'll never fall in love again (1969)
Archies - Sugar Sugar (1969)
Freda Payne - Band of Gold (1970)
Chicago - If you leave me now (1976)
Baccara - Yes sir, I can boogie (1977)
Fern Kinney - Together we are beautiful (1980)
Abba - The Winner takes it all (1980)
Kelly Marie - Feels like I'm in love (1980)
Specials - Ghost Town (1981)
Musical Youth - Pass the Dutchie (1982)
Duran Duran - The Reflex (1984)
Falco - Rock me Amadeus (1986)
Pet Shop Boys - Always on my mind (1987)
S'Express - Theme from S'Express (1988)
KLF - 3 AM Eternal (1991)
Whigfield - Saturday Night (1994)
White Town - Your woman (1997)
No Doubt - Don't speak (1997)
Olive - You're not alone (1997)
Run DMC vs. Jason Nevins - It's like that (1998)
Tamperer Feat. Maya - Feel it (1998)
Britney Spears - Baby...one more time (1999)
Black Legend - You see the trouble with me (2000)
Aaliyah - More than a woman (2002)
Sugababes - Freak Like Me (2002)

And that list was just from a very quick skim - there's probably more. It's not easy as sometimes a favourite artist got to number one, but with a song I'm not keen on. And notice how little there is from the 1970s - definitely not my favourite era! To help me narrow it down, I'm more inclined to go with the choices from the 60s seeing as they've stood the test of time...but then when I think of the brilliance of the KLF or Baccara - what to do?
