Break-up song Valentine's Day hit

Taylor Swift's break-up hit was the most popular karaoke track this Valentine's Day

Love was clearly not in the air for everybody on Valentine's Day after a poll showed Taylor Swift's break-up hit We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together was the most popular song for karaoke fans.

The song, which was a massive hit when it was released last year, was the most sung song on karaoke website luckyvoice.com, on the annual celebration of romance.

It accounted for almost one in ten - nine per cent - of all the 22,000 songs sung on the site on the day.

Second most popular was X Factor winner James Arthur's hit Impossible (6.5 per cent) followed by another break-up track - Adele's Someone Like You which accounted for 3.8 per cent of all songs sung.

Lucky Voice boss Nick Thistleton said: "Breaking up is hard to take, and for people who have been delivered the 'it's not you... it's me' line in the lead up to Valentine's Day, it's a double blow.

"We've seen a surge in heartbreak songs in the UK Karaoke Charts Top 10 in recent weeks, which tells us that the start of 2013 has been an emotional relationship rollercoaster for many. The good news is, there's nothing quite like a karaoke break-up song to help sing away the pain."

A good way to disarm this pest is to invite them out for coffee. Describe what you've observed and ask for a truce. Irrational people are often thrown off balance when their behaviour is addressed in a direct manner.More
