Sorry, ladies, but men are better at writing pop songs then women, according to scientists who believe they've found the catchiest song of all time.
The academics, who surveyed thousands of volunteers to find their results, named Queen's We Are the Champions as the catchiest song ever.
It was news that pleased the band's guitarist Brian May: "Fabulous, so it's proved then? We truly are the champions," he said.
Instead, the top 10 was comprised of rock and pop songs from all-male groups, like Europe's The Final Countdown, The Automatic's Monster and Village People's YMCA.
Musicologist Dr Alisun Pawley and Goldsmiths music psychologist Dr Daniel Mullensiefen said this was because songs were "a subconscious war cry".
"Psychologically we look to men to lead us into battle, so it could be in our intuitive nature to follow male-fronted songs."
The Daily Mail reported academics came to the conclusion that there were four key elements in a successful pop song: male vocalists; long, detailed musical phrases; multiple pitch changes in the chorus, and higher male voices being used elsewhere in the song.

1. We are the Champions - Queen (1977)
2. YMCA - The Village People (1978)
