Adele has been voted as the most popular music to fall asleep to in a recent poll conducted by Capital FM on behalf of hotel chain Travelodge. As reported by NME the poll, which admittedly has a small sample size of just 2000 people, saw Adele take out the top spot with her soothing crooning.
The award-winning songstress dethroned Coldplay, who had previously won the biannual poll in 2008 and 2010. Coldplay still managed to come in second, while Snow Patrol and Australian boy band One Direction each landed in the top five.
Edinburgh Sleep Centre expert Stevie Williams attests that the title of ‘Most Popular Music To Fall Asleep To’ is actually a good thing in regards to listeners getting a good night’s sleep.
“Results from various sleep studies undertaken with a variety of male and female groups, has indicated that listening to soft, relaxing music at bedtime leads to a number of different benefits to a night’s sleep,” said Williams.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Travelodge group added that a relaxing tune is essential to shrugging off the tension of a hard day’s work.
“After a long stressful day it’s essential that you de-stress to aid sleep, and listening to music will help focus your attention and assist your body and mind to relax.”
