Cliff Richard 80s

Cliff Richard – Mistletoe And Wine

Cliff is Mr. Christmas, but this was his first Christmas single, as far as I can tell.

It was at UK#1 on this day in the 80s, and it would be the Christmas #1 the following week, and for a total of 4 weeks. The only time it has been back in the chart was Christmas ’07, when it got back to #68. It was his 12th of 14 #1s from ’59-’99. In this very week in 2018 it is back in the chart for the first time in 11 years, at #98.

He also hit UK#1 around Christmas in ’90 and ’99, and also had Christmas singles in the chart in ’91, ’92, ’03, and ’06.

This is Cliff’s seventh appearance on the blog, which puts him at joint #17 of all time.

A time to rejoice in the good that we see
