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."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

You may think a relationship is doing well, but take a second look at your partner. If they seem tired or anxious, you should make some changes. Find practical ways to relieve their work load. Whether this means doing more household chores or finding another job is immaterial. The important thing is to lighten your loved one's work load. Be more forthcoming with compliments and express gratitude for their contributions. Put the focus on their happiness, not your own.More
