R.e.m. Song Makes Most Men Cry

R.E.M.'s EVERYBODY HURTS is the song most likely to make men sob, according to a new British survey.
The tune beat Tears in Heaven - Eric Clapton's heartfelt tribute to his dead son - to top a new poll conducted by PRS for Music, an organisation which collects royalties.
Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah was third and Sinead O'Connor was the only woman on the list at four with Prince-penned song Nothing Compares 2 U.
Also making the top 10: With or Without You by U2, The Verve's The Drugs Don't Work and Candle in the Wind by Elton John.
