Rounding out the top ten is "Come Away With Me" by Norah Jones, "Your Song" by Elton John, and "How Am I Supposed to Live Without You" by Michael Bolton.

George Michael's 1984 single, "Careless Whisper," took the tenth spot in the list.

Love is all around

To get further into the Valentine mood, Spotify has released a new Valentine's Playlist Poetry app.

The app lets users create their own bespoke poems for their loved one using song titles. Users can use Spotify's catalogue of over 20 million songs to search for song titles, which they can then piece together to create their own romantic verses.

Once the poem has been created, it can then be shared as a Spotify playlist and sent to a significant other for free.

The app can be found at: spotify.com/playlistpoetry
