James Blunt's hit single 'You're Beautiful'
was the No.1 song on music charts for so long in many
countries, that it has been voted the 'Most Irritating Song Ever'.
It didn't take long for the single to capture the top spot after it was
released in 2005, including 11 countries around the world, and it stayed
there for so long, that people got thoroughly fed up of it.
John Sewell, of market researcher www.onepoll.com, said that it was
probably the time spent at the number one spot that led to 'You're
Beautiful' being branded the most irritating song ever.
"James Blunt isn't the obvious choice, but any song that is at No1 for
so long does start to get annoying," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
Coming in close on Blunt's heels was Axel F by Crazy Frog, which was
No.1 in 13 countries.
Third spot on the list went to 'Mmm Bop' by Hanson.
'Mr Blobby' by Mr Blobby, and the 'Birdie Song' by The Tweets rounded
off the top five, coming in at fourth and fifth place respectively.
