Culture

1992 was a bleak time for the UK Singles Chart, with sales at a very low level. Due to several long chart runs, only 12 singles topped the chart this year (not counting the Queen single, which was a holdover from Christmas 1991), the lowest number since 1962.

Shakespears Sister’s hit “Stay” was the longest chart topper of 1992, holding onto the No 1 slot for 8 weeks.
