Every double A-side UK Number 1 on the Official Singles Chart

Double the music, double the pleasure?

The double A-side really is a beacon of a bygone era on the Official Chart.

Technological advances mean it's unlikely we'll see two songs have joint billing at Number 1 again, but recent times have seen a new trend for releasing dual singles.

Look back at the 38 double A-side singles to peak at Number 1 in the UK, ranging from the first official one from The Beatles in 1965, until the most recent from McFly in 2007.
