REM's Everybody Hurts voted most depressing song

Theatre producer David King has done a survey of the songs that are most likely to make men cry.

REM's Everybody Hurts was found to be the saddest but Elton John's Candle In The Wind and Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On also featured.

David King spoke to Radio 5 live Breakfast about his research that suggests that seven out of ten men will cry when they hear a sad song.
