The Verve: 'Saddest Song'

THE VERVE's hit THE DRUGS DON'T WORK is the saddest song to listen to, according to British research. DOCTOR HARRY WITCHEL from the University of Bristol Medical School monitored volunteers' heart rates to see which tracks made people feel happy, sad or exhilarated. The Verve's track topped a list of 10 sad songs, including ROBBIE WILLIAMS' ANGELS, SIR ELTON JOHN's SORRY SEEMS TO BE THE HARDEST WORD and SINEAD O'CONNOR's NOTHING COMPARES TO 2. Meanwhile, pop newcomer LILY ALLEN's track LDN is the happiest song, beating BEYONCE KNOWLES' CRAZY IN LOVE, BRITNEY SPEARS' HIT ME BABY... ONE MORE TIME and KYLIE MINOGUE's SPINNING AROUND. BLUR's anthem SONG 2 exhilarates listeners, as well as THE ROLLING STONES' START ME UP and U2's BEAUTIFUL DAY.
