The seventh most requested song was Eddy Grant’s Electric Avenue, followed by All by Myself by Eric Carmen, the Winner Takes It All by Abba and in 10th place, Dua Lipa's Physical.
Volunteer Chris Deighton, who compiles and presents the most requested chart show, said: “The 2021 chart is a real reflection of what patients tell us they want to hear!
“The whole team is pleased to be providing this service across our local hospitals and the wider community to help keep people company this festive season and throughout the year."
