Fix You was released in 2005 and entered the chart at Number 4. It quickly became the perfect song to soundtrack an emotional moment in a TV show or film.
It spent 37 weeks on the chart in its initial run but has charted for at least a week in most years since it was released up to 2017.
It also created comedy gold in Gavin & Stacey.
Fix You only sold 83,000 copies when originally released. Slow drip of digital sales since then has pushed it up to 679,000 according to OCC
