During the entire nineties, out of approximately 50,000 UK single releases, only 13 of these spent more than 5 weeks at No:1. With five weeks at the top, the twentieth most successful release of that entire decade was ‘The One and Only’, the lead song from the soundtrack of the film “Buddy’s Song” sung by a 19 year old Chesney Hawkes.
