I'm Alive by The Hollies was a UK number 1 hit on Thursday, June 24, 1965 spending 3 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Ballard originally wrote the song for Gene Pitney, who rejected it as did Wayne Fontana, before it was passed on to Manchester band The Toggery Five. The Toggery Five's version, having been recorded at Abbey Road studios, was never released because The Hollies got wind of it and decided to record it themselves. Their version went to #1 in their native UK and reached #103 in America, where the group was little-known at the time.
