The Top 10 Songs To Get People In The Mood, According To Spotify
Earlier in the week, we reported that Pandora had taken a look into its users' music preferences to see which places in the country were the most heartbroken.
In the spirit of the approaching "holiday," its competitor Spotify has decided to do the same — but instead of heartbreak, it's more interested in what its users are listening to when they're doin' the deed.
Hitting play on a playlist may not seem as momentous as slyly slipping a Luther Vandross onto your vinyl player, but it gets the job done. A perfectly timed slow jam can be even more arousing than any amount of foreplay.
So it may not come as a surprise that over 2.5 million Spotify users have made "sex" playlists — and 56% of them were made by men. In order to create the ultimate baby-making music experience, Spotify compiled a list of the songs that appear most frequently in these playlists.
As is to be expected, the songs are generally slow-paced and bass-heavy. And while most are by indie rock bands, they still feel somewhat rooted in R&B.
While "Intro" by the xx is definitely a smooth mood creator, I'm not so sure it deserves to be #1. How is The Weeknd evading this list altogether ("The Party & The After Party," anyone?)?
And if you'd rather listen to music with heart-fluttering lyrics over spine-tingling rhythms, Spotify has undertaken the same exercise for the word "love." Of course, Justin Timberlake dominates in this department.
