Cassette singles

Does anyone have a list of what singles were released on cassette in the UK? I just mean regular singles that came out ofln 45 and/or CD not promos and things.

That’s a good question Ben, I personally don’t recall seeing a cassette single discography.
I can rattle a few off from memory, but it wouldn’t be the definitive list you’re looking for.

Maybe we can start our own list? But mine would be short as I can only recall a handful of them that I have. Heartbreak Hotel and Always on my Mind are two I know I have.

Do you think there was a lot?

Twelfth Of Never
Always On My Mind
Heartbreak Hotel
A Little Less Conversation

These are the ones that come immediately to my mind.

But those were not cassettes in the UK, and as that was the question I didn’t mention them, even though I have two myself.
