LOS ANGELES, CA Monday Aug.13.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Plain White T's have revealed the inspiration for their smash summer hit "Hey There Delilah."

Frontman Tom Hinggenson said he wrote the song about former Olympic hopeful Delilah DiCrescenzo after meeting the steeplechase runner four years ago in Chicago.

He says, "I was blown away by her, she was so gorgeous. I told her I had written a song about her but the next day she went back to New York to college. She had a boyfriend so it was just a dream."

"A year later she returned to Chicago for Christmas and I took her the CD. But nothing happened because she still had the boyfriend. I hear Delilah's not with (him) now. I don't know if it's to do with the song. Before I wrote it I was desperate to get her - now it's a hit I don't care."
