Today, we’re excited to reveal the tracks music fans voted for as the ultimate tunes to get a party started, survive a hangover, get through a Monday, endure a long journey and mend a broken heart, along with the guiltiest pleasure and favorite one hit wonder.
Our inaugural Your Music Moments poll was voted for by more than 30,000 Spotify users across the globe, revealing the tunes that provide the soundtrack to music fans’ lives.
Our Guilty Pleasure floor-filler crown goes to Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’. Journey’s classic received more than double the votes than Britney or The Backstreet Boys tracks got, making it Spotify’s ultimate ‘Guilty Pleasure’.
In the hotly contended category of top ‘Party Starter’, Avicii and Robin Thicke, who received more votes than classic tracks from the Bee Gees and Chic, were neck and neck throughout the voting with Avicii’s Levels sneaking in at the last minute win to be named the top ‘Party Starter’.
To help with the morning after the night before, music lovers voted to ease their sore heads by listening to The Lazy Song by Bruno Mars, which was voted ‘Best Hangover’ track, beating Avicii’s Wake Me Up and Stronger by Kanye West.
For broken hearts, music fans opted to drown their sorrows to Adele’s Someone Like You, rather than the blatant We Are Never Getting Back Together by Taylor Swift. Adele’s Grammy-winning track was voted the best song to ‘Get Over An Ex’.
The music-loving, gym go-ers chose the motivational eighties classic Eye Of The Tiger, to feel the burn to, over recent floor-fillers such as LMFAO’s Sexy And I Know It or Snoop Dogg’s aptly named track Sweat. It’s so great to see the mix of cult classics and current chart-toppers that made the cut for our very first Your Music Moments - explore all this year’s winners here!
Movember is here and to celebrate, we created a playlist of some of the best bearded bands and artists of our time.
For those looking for a bit of mo’stache motivation and or a little inspiration from the bands with the bushiest beards, this playlist has something for everyone, from Fleet Foxes to Foo Fighters, Kings of Leon to Bon Iver.
It’s that time of year when, regardless of age, we bring out the little kid in us. Whether it’s giggling while conceiving the ultimate Halloween costume, pranking friends, or scoffing more sugar than your body’s own weight – All Hallow’s Eve is destined to be a big night and we’ve got the perfect playlist to kick it off.
