London, Dec 17 (ANI): The song that British soul/pop singer Alexandra Burke sang, and which also broke a chart record, is said to have been inspired by sex.

Burke, who is the winner of the fifth series of the X Factor show, sang her own version of the song Hallelujah, a song which is originally Leonard Cohens and whose lyrics were inspired by bedroom antics.

I didnt know it was about sexual positions. I see it as a love song. The words capture me but I dont automatically think of sex. I think of love, the Sun quoted Burke as saying tongue in cheek.

The 20-year-old singer on December 16 broke the chart record when she sold off more downloads in two days than the previous record holder did in a week.

On December 15, Burke broke the record for most downloads in a day across Europe, and her version of Hallelujah sold 149,546 downloads in two days, exceeding Leona Lewis A Moment Like This which sold 139,000 in seven days. (ANI)
