London, Dec 30 (ANI): Snow Patrol’s single ‘Chasing Cars’ has been named the most widely played song of the past decade.

The track failed to make the top five in the UK charts but was named this week as the nation’s favourite song of the noughties.

The money-spinning tune, which was released in 2006, finished ahead of Take That’s ‘Shine’ and Scissor Sisters track ‘I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’.

“I think that the song has worked because it has an emotion that people can relate to,” the Mirror quoted Snow Patrol frontman and songwriter Gary Lightbody as saying.

The poll to find the greatest song of the noughties was carried out by YouGov for Channel 4 and was coupled with a survey of leading music critics and industry figures.

The figures for the most-played survey were compiled by music licensing body PPL from the number of plays on UK radio, TV, online and in public places such as shops. (ANI)
