Coldplay top 'greatest song' list for Radio 6
Coldplay's hit Clocks has been named the greatest song of the decade by listeners to BBC station Radio 6 Music.
The 2003 single by the band whose front-man Chris Martin hails from Exeter, topped a poll to find the favourite tracks of the station's lifetime, although bands were limited to just one song each.
Arctic Monkeys single I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor was runner-up in the poll, which drew votes from 100,000 listeners.
The poll comes at the end of the station's 10th anniversary year and just a day after it celebrated becoming the biggest BBC digital station with 1.89 million listeners.
