Number 666 - Cliff Richard
Number 666 Cliff Richard "Living Doll" (1959 & 1986)
Entering on the Devil's Number 666and no not Devil Woman(That was Number 739, but coincidentally ended up with a rating of 66.6 pts, i smell a conspiracy) is Cliff Richard with his first hit from 1959 "Living Doll". Living Doll was a Number 1 hit not only in 1959 but also again (With The Young Ones) in 1986.
The link between Cliff Richard and the Young Ones....
The theme tune to the series was the cast singing the Cliff Richard song The Young Ones. Throughout the series there were many references to Richard. Rick idolized him, despite his supposedly anarchic leanings. This and his praise for Mrs. Thatcher in one episode revealed an irony that the British public (in this case, Rick) praise Thatcher and the Tories when things are going well for them. In this example, Rick and the gang having successfully robbed a bank. In 1984, after the second season, Nigel Planer got to No. 2 in the UK charts with a version of Traffic's Hole In My Shoe. In 1986, two years after the show's run, the housemates sang Living Doll with Cliff Richard and Hank Marvin for Comic Relief. The song, a reworking of his 1959 number one hit again reached the top position in the UK Charts.
