Do You Listen to Music at Work? What Does Everyone Else Listen To?

Every time we use a streaming music service, data on what we’re doing is created, transmitted, collected and analyzed.  This information can then be sold to interested parties–like, say record labels.

Spotify–a service we still don’t get in Canada–notes of what kind of music people listen to while at work.  They offer this list via Business Insider.  How does this compare with what you listen to while you work?

1. Adele (16%)
2. Arctic Monkeys (14%)
3. Mumford & Sons (13%)
4. Rihanna (13%)
5. Katy Perry (12%)
6. Beyoncé (10%)
7. Bruno Mars (12%)
8. Lady Gaga (11%)
9. Calvin Harris (10%)

  • Not even close to what I listen to in my office.

    For me it’s more Depeche Mode, Portishead, Placebo, Dark wave stuff

  • So America at large (or at the subset of America at large with premium accounts) is paying ten bucks a month to listen to what’s on the radio? Smooth.

  • Volbeat and Device. Only thing that keeps me going
