On January 31 2005, BBC Radio-One asked fans to vote for the Greatest UK Number One Single to celebrate the 1,000th number-one hit in the country. Madonna was the most voted for female artist with two songs in the top ten:
- Queen – Bohemian Rhapsody
- Iron Maiden – Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter
- Michael Jackson – Billie Jean
- Madonna – Like A Prayer
- Madonna – Vogue
- Elvis Presley – Jailhouse Rock
- Oasis – Don’t Look Back In Anger
- Abba – Dancing Queen
- Mariah Carey – Without You
- John Lennon – Imagine
What do you think of the results of the poll?

Like a Prayer and Vogue are brilliant and Iconic but I would also include Ray of Light, Music and Live to Tell as the songs that have shaped my life! Madonna is #1 in my book!
I’m surprised “Into The Groove” wasn’t listed. It’s her biggest UK #1 and seems like her most popular song.
