BBC: Sir Cliff fails to top UK charts

Sir Cliff Richard has failed to top the UK Top 40 single charts with Thank You For a Lifetime, which debuted at number three instead.

Had it reached the top spot, it would have given the 67-year-old a number one single across six consecutive decades.

If Sir Cliff really is that desperate for a Twenty-First Century number one, he could do far worse that re-release his all-time classic, Devil Woman:

  1. The reason he didn't run with a re-release of "Devil Woman" is that he is unaware of the song's popularity -- nobody ever shouts out "Devil Woman" at his concerts.

  2. go on, do a video for him, in case he changes his mind.
