Held Off The Top Spot

Since 1952, there have been nearly 1000 songs which have reached number two in the UK singles chart. Some have come to be regarded as pop classics, agonisingly prevented from reaching the top of the chart. Others have largely been forgotten. Held Off the Top Spot is devoted to these near-misses and noble failures, featuring songs from the 1950s through to 2016, all bound by one thing in common: they didn't quite make it.
