Chasing Cars 'noughties' most played song'
Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars has been played more than any other song in the past decade.
Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol is the most played track of the noughties, music licensing body PPL has revealed.

Gary Lightbody, the group's frontman, said that the song was written after he and the band's producer drank a "couple of bottles of wine" and set to work with a couple of guitars.

"I think that the song has worked because it has an emotion that people can relate to," he explained.

Take That's Shine was named as the second most played song of the past ten years, with I Don't Feel Like Dancin' by Scissor Sisters coming in third and The Feeling's Love It When You Call taking fourth.

Other songs featured in the top ten include About You Now by Sugababes, Take That's Rule The World, James Blunt's You're Beautiful and I Predict A Riot by Kaiser Chiefs.

The Official Charts Company recently announced that James Blunt's 2005 debut Back to Bedlam is the biggest selling UK album of the past ten years.
