This makes me happier than it ever really should.

I have the CD single at my folks house somewhere.

Where does this sit on the list of time between first charting and hitting no.1?

At 103 weeks surely top for most weeks to get to no.1.

I think Amarillo took 35 years.

PJ and Duncan 24 years?

I'm sure there were a few in the 1980s.

I'm sure there are others that took longer in terms of how old they were (Reet Petite for one), but I doubt any has taken as long in terms of weeks on chart before hitting #1.

Yes I think Reet Petite had the longest wait (29 years), this is 2nd, which given context makes me feel prehistoric.
