COLDPLAY’S 2003 hit Clocks has been named the greatest song of the last ten years.The Grammy Award-winning track topped a poll by BBC station Radio 6 Music, which is coming to the end of its 10th anniversary year. The poll aimed to find listeners’ favourite songs from the station’s lifetime, with Johnny Cash’s cover of Nine Inch Nails track Hurt and The Killers hit song Mr Brightside among the tracks to make the top ten.Entries from the top 100 had been played throughout the day, with Steve Lamacq counting down the top 10. Elbow’s One Day Like This came in at number three in the poll, while Arctic Monkeys’ debut single I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor finished runner-up.Lamacq said of Coldplay’s victory in the poll: ‘It’s a good result for Coldplay, who were clearly one of the biggest bands of the decade.’The poll comes a day after 6 Music became the biggest BBC digital station with 1.89 million listeners. The achievement is all the more impressive given that 6 Music was threatened with closure due to cost-cutting measures in 2010.The proposal was subsequently rejected by the BBC Trust, but the huge campaign to save the station also succeeded in bringing it to the attention of a wider audience, with 6 Music’s audience almost trebling since.
