Macy Gray admits she was stunned by the song's popularity - and she can't believe her fans still know all the lyrics a decade later.
She tells Grazia magazine, "When I wrote my biggest hit, I Try, I didn't think it was a big deal. Too wordy, not catchy enough. So I was shocked when it became a success. And 10 years later people still know the words - that's probably been the biggest surprise of my life. On YouTube people play it on ukuleles."
