Well, Spotify has identified the 10 songs current employees listen to the most, and here they are!
1. Adele -- Someone Like YouSpotify also reveals that 61% of employees get to listen to music at work. Yes, you may put me in the "get to listen" instead of "have to listen" camp, because I love music, always have, especially when I'm working.
2. Do I Want To Know? -- Arctic Monkeys
3. I Will Wait -- Mumford & Sons
4. Diamonds -- Rihanna
5. Dark Horse -- Katy Perry, Juicy J
6. Drunk In Love -- Beyonce, Jay Z
7. Treasure -- Bruno Mars
8. Do What U Want -- Lady Gaga, R. Kelly
9. Under Control -- Calvin Harris, Alesso, Hurts
10. Get Lucky -- Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers
And employees at work love themselves some Adele. In fact, 16% of employees are whistling to her while they work, the most of any modern artist, apparently. The Arctic Monkeys rank as second most popular artist with the workforce, and, well, m'kay. I watched the Arctic Monkeys perform on Saturday Night Live once, I think?
And wasn't Beyonce "Crazy In Love" just a few years ago? Now she's "Drunk In Love." I can't keep up with her musical love life anymore. I like the three or four most popular Mumford & Sons songs, but the group vaguely reminds me of The Dave Matthews Band during its 1990s heyday. The band is good-to-great when I'm in the mood to listen to them -- and it's obvious that they're talented -- but their songs can start to sound the same.
Bruno Mars' "Treasure" is fine enough, but I find myself editing and reworking his lyrics in my head whenever I hear his music. His lyrics always strike me as close, but not quite. I do the same with P!nk. Is that weird? Probably.
"Get Lucky" is the best song on the list. It has a good beat we can all dance to while waiting on hold. But who cares what I think. You have to get on the elevator and listen to Muzak! It's all good.
