Looking on the brightside – Clatterbridge Health Park’s most popular song revealed

Mr Brightside by The Killers has been revealed as the most chosen song of 2020 by Radio Clatterbridge listeners.

The 2004 hit by the American rock band topped a poll of almost 500 requests by patients and staff over the last 12 months.

The track had previously featured in the countdown back in 2017 and 2018, charting at numbers 13 and 19 respectively.

It pipped Perfect by Ed Sheeran – which ranked at number five last year – to the top spot.

Sweet Caroline by Neil Diamond came in at number three.

Last year’s number one – I want to break free by Queen – failed to make the top 15.

The annual countdown was unveiled by presenter Paul Johnston as part of our line-up of special programmes to welcome in the new year.

Collecting requests has proved a challenge because of visiting restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite this, a total of 492 listener choices were played.
