Whatever you think of Sir Cliff Richard, you can't deny he is one of the most successful British solo artists ever!

Vote for your favourite here, there are plenty to choice from with his 50 year plus career, feel free to add your favourite if it's not on the list

Cliff's music career started back in the late-1950's with Rock 'n' Roll hits like 'Move It' and 'Summer Holiday' with backing group The Shadows, he was dubbed "The British Elvis".

He has competed in Eurovision 3 times including in the 1960's with 'Congratulations

His music style went more poppy during the 1970's and he scored a 1979 #1 hit 'We Don't Talk Anymore', plus numerous 80's hits like 'Wired For Sound'. He then went on to have two Christmas No1 singles in the UK, and released his 100th album in November 2013.

The Top Ten

1 We Don't Talk Anymore

An all time favourite!

good song.

In the 1970's he had a run of sophisticated and memorable singles leading up to 1979's We Don't Talk Anymore, a number 1 hit which that brought out the best in his soul-lite falsetto. The trade-off was his transformation into an ageless pop icon, the so-called "the Peter Pan of Pop".

There are so many that I love of his. can't keep this feeling in should have made the list. What an awesome song He is the greatest performer to ever grace this earth.

4 Devil Woman

My favourite from the selection given, although I would have chosen 'Miss You Nights' as my all time favourite.

This is my favorite song from Cliff, hands's got a catchy beat and a story.

The best Pop Rock song ever...

Great song. Wired for sound is so lame

5 Ocean Deep

A great song unknown by the general public. Sung with great feeling.

Beautiful song which sadly seems to have been mostly forgotten, other than by Cliff fans of course. Hopefully one day it will have it's day in the sun. Very pleased to see some deserved recognition in this poll.

The emotion portrayed within the vocals makes this song brilliant.

Amazing vocals. Would blow anything on x-factor away.

More pop-rock from Cliff's pop era a major hit in the 1980's.

9 Dreamin'

Slick and seemless

This is a very happy song, and has always been one of my favorites.

This is a great track. Youthful and energetic vocals.

Like you I have been a Cliff fan - for me its been from the late 50's when he first started singing ( I am now 72 ) I saw him in Durban in 1980 and twice in Cape Town ( S A ) There are so many songs that I like and Dreaming is one of them. Thanks for posting this site - Peeter Muna

10 In the Country

An classic 1960's summer hit. 'In the Country' is a very English take on California sunshine pop.
Great catchy sing-a-long track.

One of my favourites of Cliff Richard songs. Whenever I drive to the country side I
like to play this catchy song. I even sing it at karaoke several times.

13 Living Doll

Another track with The Shadows which was also a No1 in 1980's with the 'kids' from sitcom The Young Ones. Written by Lionel Bart made popular by Cliff Richard and the Shadows (then still The Drifters) in 1959. It has topped the UK charts twice; in its original version and a new version recorded in 1986 in aid of Comic Relief.

It's his only good number and arguably the first British rock and roll song.

15 What Car

A 2005 Top 10 hit for Cliff, upbeat Rocky track about him driving his dad's car when he was young without him knowing.

Great song, even greater when performed live on stage!

Fab rock n roll sing

16 I Just Don't Have the Heart

Was shocked to discovered he had a song made by Stock Aitken Waterman, but the song is very catchy and it sounds ahead of its time (production wise) considering the song was made in the late 80's

1989 UK #3 hit, a modern sounding pop song for the time. Produced by PWL, Stock Aitken and Waterman who worked to produce some of Kylie's biggest hits at the time.

17 A Little In Love

We Don't Talk Anymore, Devil Woman and Dreamin'. A Little In Love gets my vote

18 Theme for a Dream

Makes me remember my dream and his kisses. Cliff,s music cannot ever be beat! Having followed him for years, and loving all his music!

I can't believe that this song is not in the top 5... this song portrays the true essence of love musically and has certainly brought out the singing potential of Cliff Richard.

19 The Millennium Prayer

Who would have thought that a singing vocal version of The Lord's Prayer combined with the theme to Auld Lang Syne would make it to the top of the u.k. charts?

The Millennium Prayer was a charity single released in the final week of November 1999 on the Papillon record label. All the proceeds generated from its record sales went directly to the Children's Promise organisation. It was the perfect song to end celebrate the end of a millennium and herald the beginning of a new one!

On its initial release, it caused such a great furore in the press and most radio stations refused point blank to even play the song. Certain individuals openly expressed their intense hatred of the song and described it as the worst single of the twentieth century! After a great deal more negative comments were made about the single, things got rather personal and Cliff himself was being discussed in a most unsavoury manner. Then something of a media frenzy ensued and it was anticipated that the ...more
