Their next two songs, "I Like It" and "You'll Never Walk Alone", both reached no. 1 in the UK -- the first time this feat had ever been achieved (first three singles by a performer all reach no. 1).
After a few more hits, Marsden began writing most of their own songs, including "It's All Right" and "Ferry Cross the Mersey". The band also starred in a moderately successful film called Ferry Cross the Mersey. By 1965, though, their popularity was rapidly declining on both sides of the Atlantic and they soon seemed un-hip. They disbanded in 1966 (see 1966 in music).
