Rihanna tops catchiest song poll

Rihanna's hit song 'Umbrella' has been named the catchiest song ever in a new survey.

The song, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the US for seven weeks and the UK singles charts for 10 weeks last summer, beat off stiff competition to take the title.

Abba's 1976 hit 'Dancing Queen' came second in the poll, while YMCA by the Village People was awarded third place.

Fourth position was taken by Dexy's Midnight Runners' chart-topper 'Come On' Eileen', and the top five was rounded out by Kylie Minogue's 2001 hit 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head', in the survey by OnePoll.com.
