Kylie Minogue's 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' named most-played track of the decade
Britney Spears and Robbie Williams also rank highly in PRS For Music poll
The Australian singer's 2001 Number One single came out on top of PRS For Music's poll after receiving the most airplay and live covers over the past decade.
Britney Spears' 'Toxic' was in second place, with Robbie Williams' 1997 track 'Angels' in third. Jamelia's 'Superstar' and Liberty X's 'Just A Little' completed the top 5 in the list.
Written by performer turned songwriter Cathy Dennis, 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' was originally turned down by S Club 7 and Sophie Ellis-Bextor before being picked up as the lead single for Kylie's 2001 album 'Fever'.
Commenting on the list, PRS For Music chairman Guy Fletcher told BBC News:
The writing talent behind this top five includes legends such as Cathy Dennis and Guy Chambers, and underpins the importance of good songwriting in producing a hit.
Earlier this month, Liam Gallagher was credited as being among the hardest working artists in showbiz in another PRS For Music poll.
Beady Eye made it into the Top 10 in the poll, which saw Olly Murs and JLS come out joint top after headlining the most major venues throughout the year.
