This Day In Music - 13 August
2004, 'Angels' by Robbie Williams was voted the best single which should have been a number one but never was, in a poll for music channel VH1.
The ballad, which reached No.4 in December 1997, beat Savage Garden's 'Truly, Madly, Deeply' and Aerosmith's 'I Don't Want To Miss A Thing.' Other songs said to have deserved a number one included Madonna with 'Ray of Light', 'Beautiful Stranger', 'Crazy For You' and 'Material Girl', Bon Jovi with 'Always' and Oasis with 'Wonderwall' and 'Live Forever'. Sir Cliff Richard's hit 'Millennium Prayer' was voted the worst number one single of all time.
