60 years of the charts

This month marks the 60th anniversary of the UK Singles charts.

Those of you of a certain age will remember growing up listening to the top 40 rundown on a Sunday afternoon, seeing whether your favourite songs were moving up or down the charts.

The charts was a big part of my life - sadly the singles chart just doesn't have the same romance or importance for many people as it used to.

As a kid I used to think I'd always know who was number 1; now I have no idea. I'd struggle to name a record that topped the charts this year and to be honest, I'm not that bothered.

So what were the first singles I bought. I remember buying at least 3 singles together at beginning of 1989.

I can only remember two, one was Cuddly Toy by Roachford and the second was by a group called Ten City with a song called That's the Way Love is.

Check them out below.
