Run by Leona Lewis was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, December 13, 2008 spending 2 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. This was originally recorded by Snow Patrol. It was included on their 2004 Final Straw album and its single release reached #5 in the UK. Lewis originally sung this song during a session recorded for BBC 1's Live Lounge on October 31, 2007. A year later she recorded a studio version for a deluxe edition of her Spirit album. After an emotional interpretation by the singer on the X-Factor TV program provoked an ecstatic public reaction, there was a massive outcry for it to be issued as a single. Lewis' record company heeded the demands and it swiftly became the UK's fastest ever selling digital-only release with 133,000 downloads in its first seven days.
