Do you love me? by Brian Poole and the Tremeloes replaced She loves you by the Beatles at the top of the UK singles chart fifty years ago this week. It had entered the top 40 four weeks previously at number 33 and broke into the top 10 two weeks later.

The song spent three weeks at number 1 and then made way for You’ll never walk alone by Gerry and the Pacemakers. After falling from the top spot, the record stayed in the top 10 for another three weeks, two of them in the top 5, and then spent the final four weeks of its chart life in the lower top 40.

Do you love me? was released on the Decca record label and was the first of two UK number 1 hits for the Tremeloes. The original version of the song was recorded by the Contours in 1962 but it did not enter the UK chart. Two other versions did enter the top 40, however. In 1963, the Dave Clark Five took a version to number 30 and Deep Feeling’s recording reached number 34 in 1970.
