So, what are the most played tracks off The Beatles’ ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ album? That’s a question I know you’ve asked many times over the years.

You can try denying it, but you’re forgetting I don’t drink. I remember everything. Including that time in Belfast, or was it Gloucester, or maybe Inverness, actually, no, it was Dubai. And you got drunk and started shouting at the top of you voice “which fucking song off fucking ‘Sgt Pepper’ has been most fucking played on the fucking radio?” You don’t remember because that’s how drunk you were. But I do, because I was sober. And totally and utterly shocked by your fucking language.

Anyway, it’s fifty years since ‘Sgt Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ was released and collecting society PPL has worked out which tracks off the record have been played the most on UK radio and TV stations (albeit since 2000, but hey, it was you who insisted “only since fucking 2000, mind” on that hot night in the desert).
