Press release from: Dayinsure

What songs do people most like to listen to when driving? In a new study, the team at Dayinsure has revealed the most popular songs and artists used in driving playlists.

By using a playlist mining tool, Dayinsure has been able to analyse 6,084 playlists and 920,904 songs in their study of Spotify music data. As a result, Dayinsure has been able to discover the songs and artists that Spotify users have been including the most in their driving-focused playlists.

The study has resulted in a comprehensive playlist featuring 100 songs that are most commonly found in driving playlists, along with seven drive-specific playlists such as ‘morning commute’ or ‘school run’.

Discover some of the main findings from this new study below:

‘Riptide’ by Vance Joy (2013) is the most popular song to listen to when driving, having appeared in the highest number of driving-themed playlists on Spotify.

• ‘Riptide’ features in 324 of the 6,084 playlists examined
• ‘Riptide’ is most likely to feature on Spotify’s road trip playlists
• ‘Riptide’ is the only entry for Vance Joy across all playlists analysed

Drake is the most popular artist to listen to when driving, appearing in more driving-themed Spotify playlists than any other artist or band.

• Drake appeared on 909 of the 6,084 playlists examined
• Drake’s most popular song for driving is 'Chicago Freestyle', found on 189 of the playlists analysed
• Drake has three entries in the list of 100 most popular songs found in Spotify driving-themed playlists

Dayinsure’s team had this to say: “We all have our favourite songs and artist to listen to when driving but in our latest study, we wanted to see exactly what the world has in common when it comes to driving music. By analysing over 6,000 Spotify playlists and more than 900,000 songs, our study has uncovered some fascinating findings. We now have a better picture of exactly what the world likes to listen to when behind the wheel, whether for a road trip or morning commute. Depending on the time of day or the reason for being in the car, tastes certainly differ and it’s fascinating to see.”
