Singtones reveal classic love songs are more popular than modern chart hits for serenading lovers on Valentine’s Day.
Record-your-own singing message service, ReVoice Singtones, today revealed the UK’s top-ten favourite Valentine’s Day love songs. Their findings are based on download data from the busiest week of Singtones’ year, as people across the country record themselves singing love songs and send them to their lover’s mobile phone as a unique Valentine’s Day message.
The most popular love song for Valentine’s Day is Barry White’s version of ‘Just The Way You Are’, with Andy Williams’ ‘Can’t Take My Eyes Off You’ a close second.
The highest-placed modern pop song (post 1980) is The Bangle’s 1991 smash ‘Eternal Flame’ which enters the Singtones Valentine’s Day chart at number four. (See full list of Top Ten tracks below).
The studio-quality Singtones are created by users recording themselves via the easy-to-use Singtone Studio PC program, downloaded from www.singtones.com. Alternatively, Singtones can be created over a mobile or landline telephone.
Best of all, regardless of whether users have a good voice or not, Singtone Studio automatically applies professional audio tuning technology to instantly enhance the user’s recordings – so they’re always in-time and in-tune. The creator can then proudly send their song message to the mobile phone of their loved one.
‘The golden oldies really come into their own at this time of year,’ says Singtones boss Jeff Bloom. ‘It seems the classic love songs have an enduring resonance modern-day songs can’t compete with.’
