Adele has topped a new chart of the most-played love songs of the past year.
The singer's cover of Bob Dylan's Make You Feel My Love is the romantic track which has had most public plays in the past 12 months - be it on TV, radio or in bars and shops.
The list, compiled ahead of Valentine's Day, puts Love You More by JLS in second place.
Kylie Minogue's All The Lovers was third, Florence + The Machine's You've Got The Love was fourth and Cheryl Cole's Fight For This Love was fifth.
Birdy's Skinny Love, Madness' It Must Be Love, Edei's Loved, JLS' Everybody In Love and The Power Of Love by Huey Lewis And The News rounded out the top 10.
The chart was put together by royalties body PPL, whose research also found that one in 20 songs played in 2011 had the word 'love' in the title.
PPL spokesman Jonathan Morrish said: "A good love song stays with you forever - love is truly the most emotive subject and one which has inspired musicians through the ages. Love truly is, and always has been, the subject which inspires great music."
