When the Official Charts Company asked the U.K. public to vote for their favorite No. 1 single of the last 60 years, The Beatles seemed like the obvious frontrunners. But it was Freddie Mercury and the timeless anthem "Bohemian Rhapsody" that prevailed.
Queen's 1975 classic "Bohemian Rhapsody" was voted as the U.K.'s "Favorite No. 1 Single," narrowly beating out Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" for the top spot. Perhaps most surprisingly, The Beatles' "Hey Jude" only came in at No. 5, with Adele's super smash hit "Someone Like You" at No. 3.
Here's the U.K.'s Top 10 list of "Favorite Number One Singles Of The Last 60 Years":
1. Queen, "Bohemian Rhapsody"
2. Michael Jackson, "Billie Jean"
3. Adele, "Someone Like You"
4. Oasis, "Don't Look Back In Anger"
5. The Beatles, "Hey Jude"
6. John Lennon, "Imagine"
7. Britney Spears, "...Baby One More Time"
8. Abba, "Dancing Queen"
9. Whitney Houston, "I Will Always Love You"
10. Kylie Minogue, "Can't Get You Out Of My Head"
Out of these 10 singles, which do you think deserved to be No. 1?
