Weightless

Album: Timeless (2007)
Charted: 10
  • This was the band's first UK Top 10 chart placing in almost 11 years, their previous one being a 1997 #4 cover of The Beatles' "Yesterday." Wet Wet Wet achieved their hit by means of a clever exploitation of chart rules. The Scottish group issued multiple download versions of the same song, including a full length album version, a shorter single edit, an acoustic version, a demo version and various live performances resulting in dedicated collectors paying for a number of different renditions.
