Listeners say Tina Turner is Simply The Best

Tina Turner (Credit: Philip Spittle)Tina Turner's classic hit Simply The Best has been unveiled as the most requested song on Radio Clatterbridge during 2017.

Despite only reaching number five in the official music charts when it was first released in September 1989, the iconic track has endured.

It remains a hit with our listeners nearly three decades later and previously took the top spot in 2012.

Frank Sinatra's My Way was runner-up while Birkenhead-born Charlie Landsborough reached number 3 with My Forever Friend.

Last year's chart-topper, Status Quo's Rockin' All Over The World, slipped all the way down to number 20.

We collected more than a thousand requests from people across the Health Park - the highest number since 2014.

The most popular artists overall were Abba, Frank Sinatra and The Killers followed by Tina Turner and Ed Sheeran.

Radio Clatterbridge's volunteers visit different parts of the health park each week to collect requests from patients and staff.

Listeners can also ask for their favourite songs by phone, text or online.
