Before we sign off for Christmas on Friday 22nd, we had to do one last blog post!
December 1977 seen ‘Salyut 6 EO-1’ space expedition set a few records! The two-person crew began their expedition on the 10th December 1977, and finished on March 16th, 1978. The crew were in space for a record setting 96-day trip, enduring the longest space flight to that time and for the first time, successfully docked three spacecrafts together.
Christmas day 1977 had the U.K population singing away to ‘Mull of Kintyre’ by ‘Wings’. It held its position at number 1 for a total of 9 weeks, staying in the chart top 100 for a massive 17 weeks. While the U.S population danced away to the Bee Gees popular hit, How Deep is Your Love.
This year, international pop star ‘Psy’, will also be celebrating his 40th birthday. Psy rose to fame worldwide, with his 2012 viral YouTube video, ‘Gangnam Style’. Gangnam Style made its chart debut on September 16th, 2012, although only lasting at Number 1 for a week, Gangnam Style spent 21 weeks in the U.K Official Singles Chart. In total, Psy reached number one in 27 different countries worldwide, from Australia to Norway, Poland to Canada!
From everyone at W Hall, we hope all our followers have a lovely Christmas and a very happy New Year! We will be back to work on Tuesday 2nd of January after a well-deserved Christmas break!
