There was change in the way the charts were recorded in 1960. The Uk music charts had begun in November 1954 but in February 1960 the official chart was switched from the new musical express to the Record Retailer which was a new publication that produced a top fifty Uk chart singles list. The number ones of 1960 are a little old fashioned and there aren't many party classics. Having said that if its a party where Chas and Dave is going down well then Lonnie Donegan's My Old mans a Dustman is a must play track for the DJ.

Three steps to heaven peaked at number one, unfortunately after the death of Eddie Cochran who was killed in a car crash. In the 70s Three steps was re recorded by Showaddywaddy and just missed the top in 1975. By today's standards Good Timin is a cheesy pop tune that at the time would have been described as R and B. Today a modern remake would make a potential party track for kids, think Mr Blobby, Bob the builder or Crazy frog. Shakin Stevens, the biggest selling music act of the 1980s did something similar to 'What do you want to make those eyes at me for?' with a top five hit in 1987, and Grandmaster Flash did a great remix of Apache which is almost a disco classic.

The King aka Elvis had just one visit to the top of the Uk charts in 1960 with its now or never and the Christmas number one was by Cliff and the shadows. Although Sir Cliff had numerous number ones it wasn't until mistletoe and wine he reclaimed the Christmas number one in1988. Despite the 28 year break somehow many people think Sir Cliff has had almost a monopoly on Christmas number ones in the UK.
