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.

The real hoot is that the rather prim Sir Cliff was pipped to the post by a tracks called Sex On Fire (by The Kings of Leon—great band) and I Kissed a Girl by a young lady who is presumably on the bus to Hebden Bridge.

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.

A fat, bearded chap with a Charles Darwin fixation.


  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.

  3. Oh, I can't wait....Napalm Deathsing Barry Manilow!

  4. I understand he thinks women are the devil.

    Not getting another no 1, you'd have to have a heart of stone not to piss yourself.
