Hey holicman, you know Squeeze was only called UK Squeeze in Australia, don't you? Because there was an Aussie band called Squeeze already, so the "UK" was added to the name to avoid confusion.

Hi again...

Glad the limit's off, as I missed my all-time fave first time around (which was ever-so-slightly embarrassing!)

#3. 'God Only Knows' - Beach Boys

...and as it's Canada Day...

#4. 'Everything I Do (I Do It For You)' - Bryan Adams
Which still holds the record for the longest consecutive stay at #1 in the UK...about six years, if I remember correctly!

Mind you, we Brits got our own back when Queen Elton's 'Candle In The Wind (Diana Version)' got stuck at the top of the Canadian charts for 45 weeks...!!
