Shiver was officially Britain's most broadcast track in 2005, indicating most played on radio, MTV and commercial use.[1] Shiver became a No.1 Pan European Airplay hit during 2005. Its year-end ranking came in at No.6 due to 2,733,820 audience points accumulated and 31,423 plays during the year. Shiver became Natalie Imbruglia's biggest pan-European airplay track since "Torn" and as a result is considered her second greatest hit.[2] The song was covered by Maxïmo Park on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge. Lara Krost performed the song during Season 5 of Australian Idol. In 2006, Shiver was nominated in the APRA (Australasian Performing Right Association) category for 'Most Performed Foreign Work'.[3] It was also nominated for an Ivor Novello Award for 'Most Performed Track'.[4] "Shiver" has sold approximately 500,000 copies worldwide.[5]

Music video[edit]

The music video, inspired by the movie The Bourne Supremacy, started airing around February 2005. It was directed by Jake Nava who has also directed the music video for Britney Spears' hit, My Prerogative, and Holly Valance's State of Mind. It was filmed in Kyiv, Ukraine, during winter. A departure from Imbruglia's previous video styles, Shiver had a spy-themed, action-packed plot with car chases and switched identities.[citation needed]
