Posted: October 25, 2012

Music website Spotify’s The Science Behind the Song poll of 2,000 users has identified some unexpected traits in their ‘banging choon’ tastes. On the site’s blog it says: “We commissioned music psychologist Dr Daniel Müllensiefen to investigate the important role music plays in the romantic endeavours of humans… these were the results:”

 

Top tracks considered ‘better than sex’:

Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody

Kings of Leon’s Sex on Fire

Robbie Williams’ Angels

Meatloaf’s Bat out of Hell

Bon Jovi’s Living on a Prayer

 

1 in 3 people who responded to the poll said they could name a tune which was better than sex.

 

Best music to play during sex:

The Dirty Dancing soundtrack

Marvin Gaye’s Sexual Healing

Ravel’s Bolero

Berlin’s Take My Breath Away

Anything by Barry White

 

According to the report, men are more likely to compromise their musical tastes for a date and people who like punk or metal are even more likely to.

 

Best tunes for dance-floor flirting:

ABBA’s Dancing Queen

Chris de Burgh’s Lady in Red

LMFAO’s Sexy and I Know It

Dirty Dancing soundtrack

40% of people said they found listening to music more arousing than touch during sex.

 

Music most likely to get listeners in the mood:

Marvin Gaye – Sexual Healing

Marvin Gaye – Lets Get It On (his Best Of album looks like a good investment for Christmas)

Anything by Barry White

Serge Gainsbourg’s Je T’aime

Kings of Leon – Sex On Fire

 

Eric Clapton’s Wonderful Tonight and Andy William’s Moon River both got ‘romantic dinner date’ thumbs up.
