The Beatles: John Lennon said Cliff Richard was ‘only thing worth listening to’ from UK

Despite the notion that he might be “unpopular” in this day and age, Sir Cliff had the perfect rebuttal.

He told James: “God bless him, but John Lennon said: ‘Before Cliff Richard and Move It there was nothing worth listening to in England.’”

Move It was Cliff Richard and The Shadows’ first single, which went straight to number two in the official singles charts.

At the time, Move It was described as “Presley-esque”, on account of the rock and roll guitar hooks, and his mumbly vocals.
