- Of the more than 1,000 number 1 singles in the UK charts, only 80 have been solo female artists.
- Madonna had 12 of those.
- Kylie, Britney and Whitney have had 15 between them
- Dusty Springfield only had one! (“You don’t have to say you love me”)
- Therefore one Windermere = 9 * 30.5 * 24 = 6,588 Albert Halls
- “Mere” means “lake”, so saying Lake Windermere is like saying Lake Winderlake
I like factoids like these. My brain stores them up endlessly, then mixes them up with others and then regurgitates them randomly at parties.
