    I don't mind the tune but it has just entered its 200th week on the UK singles chart! The song was released in 2004!

    Between March 2017 - March 2018, the song has been streamed 45 million times, while so far in 2018 alone it's averaged 878,000 plays a week across all major streaming services, helping it linger around the lower end of the Top 100.

    They did a killer (ha) Live Lounge version of it on Radio One when I was back home in August, I would assume it's still kicking around as a result of that.

    For reference to the Radio One Live lounge performance in August. I'd just picked up my hire car to drive to my mum's and they repeated it from earlier in the day.

    If I had any say they'd have a song in the top 10 every week.

    Kids today don't know real music... they're out of touch... out of time!
