Sometimes it's just as impressive to nearly get a Number 1 in the UK, as the tracks that only ever peaked at Number 2 on the Official Singles Chart prove.
Getting a Number 1 on the UK's Official Charts is, for many acts both at home and around the globe, a massive achievement - and as the Official Charts Company begins to celebrate our 70th anniversary year in 2022, we're also taking a look back at the biggest tracks that just missed out on the top spot.
Using our data, we've collected below every single song to peak at Number 2 on the Official Singles Chart - from the first (Guy Mitchell's Feet Up in 1952 if you wondered) all the way to Sam Ryder's recent Eurovision mega-hit SPACE MAN in 2022.
And if all this wasn't enough, the Official Charts Company is teaming up with Mighty Hoopla for our first-ever festival slot - dedicated to celebrating the iconic Number 2s of the Official Singles Chart.
Pop Injustice: 70 years of iconic Number 2s sees OCC link-up with Mighty Hoopla and DJs of pop club night Push The Button to play you all the tracks you wouldn't believe never hit Number 1.
Check out the full list below, and be sure to check us out at The Grand’s Pleasure Palace stage, 1.30pm, Saturday 4 June in London’s Brockwell Park. See you there!
