You wait for ages, then two come along at the same time !

Ah, well, that's the way it goes.

An established UK chart act had a song out which was a Billboard Hot 100 No.1, selling over 2 million, but never appearing in the UK chart.

What was the song & singer ?

How about The Rolling Stones with Ruby Tuesday????

The Rolling Stones did make the UK chart with that [well, a later live version anyway].

The song I'm thinking of didn't chart here.
