Has there ever been a song that reached number 1, that didn't have a video? Maybe something like a trance tune......?

    I know Elvis vs JXL - A Little Less Conversation didn't have a video (unless you include the Nike ads) until it's second week at Number 1.

    I'm a total chart geek, I should know this :p

    The Monkees were the first band to have videos so, yes, before that all No1's didn't have videos!

    Don't you reckon thats sad? I mean, its not about the music anymore is it? There must have been at least ONE song that reached number 1 without the help of a video....

    If you want to go back far enough you'll find a few. It's all about the airtime on TV and Radio to get your song heard (or seen). You'd be stupid not to realise a song without a video nowadays.
