A new survey has revealed the most common songs and artists devoted to getting people in the mood for sex.
Spotify dug through millions of love, Valentine’s and sex-themed playlists to find the most popular songs, the Guardian revealed.
The two minute rhythmic instrumental ‘Intro,’ the first song on the debut album of indie rockers ‘The XX,’ is apparently considered the perfect song to make love to.
The rest of the top 10 sex songs include ‘From Eden’ by Hozier, ‘Menswear’ by The 1975, ‘Magic’ by Coldplay, a remix of ‘You and Me’ by Disclosure, ‘Sweet Ophelia’ by Zella Day, ‘Let’s Get Started’ by Dylan Gardner, ‘Night Like This’ by LP, ‘Talk Is Cheap’ by Chet Faker, and ‘Dreams’ by Fou De Toi.
Men are slightly more likely to have created playlists with “sex” in the title than women (56 per cent to 44 per cent), and both sexes tending towards the on-trend Chet Faker, Zella Day and LP who all make an appearance in the top ten. That leaves Coldplay the odd one out.
In contrast, “love” playlists are significantly more common (there’s 28m of them) and the music skews towards the mainstream. Miley Cyrus, Beyonce and Justin Timberlake all place in the top ten.
John Legend’s ‘All of Me’ is the No. 1 song for love, with other top picks including ‘Stay’ by Rihanna, ‘Not a Bad Thing’ by Justin Timberlake, ‘Drunk in Love’ by Beyonce, ‘Say Something’ by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, ‘Me and My Broken Heart’ by Rixton, ‘Adore You’ by Miley Cyrus, ‘Just Give Me a Reason’ by Pink, ‘Let Her Go’ by Passenger, and ‘Mirrors’ by Justin Timberlake.
