LOL, "New Musical Express Launched the first UK singles sales chart (a top 12) on 14 November 1952", just a little too late for me, although there were sheet music charts starting in 1946.. :)

There's an American site that goes back to 1945:

http://www.everyhit.com/dates/


which gives me:

The Monkees - "I'm A Believer"

but the number 1 album was The Sound Of Music !

OK, on that basis The Number 1 single was Nat 'King' Cole - "Unforgettable:) But it probably took a while to get over to the UK.

The second biggest selling single in the world was recorded in 1942 (my year) by the old groaner Bing Crosby (White Christmas), surpassed only by the Elton John dirge 'Candle in the Wind 97'.

Not my cup of tea, OK when he recorded with Satchmo though.
