From Presley to Prince, with just one song per artist, we celebrate 70 years of the the UK singles chart with a look at the best songs that didn’t quite make it to No 1
The perfect one-hit-wonder single: an obscure American harmonica instrumental B-side re-recorded by Elton John’s backing musicians. With a touch of ersatz northern soul about the arrangement and a glam-presaging stompiness to the drums, Groovin’ With Mr Bloe is the sound of a 1970 youth club disco and a total delight.
