Do you like to listen to music while doing work around the house? I know I do! Most of the time my music depends on my mood which, let's be honest, doesn't always start off great when it's time for chores. However, once I get in the zone and the music cheers me up, cleaning quickly becomes enjoyable.

There was a survey recently conducted that said out of 2,000 Americans, 66% listen to music while they clean. More specifically, of those who listen to music, prefer genres like hip-hop/rap (58%), blues (51%), and rock (47%).

Also, of those, 72% have a go-to song they put on to jam to every time they clean. The top ones include:

  • Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson ft. Bruno Mars
  • Work - Rihanna
  • All of Me - John Legend
  • But a Dream - G-Eazy
  • Girls Like You - Maroon 5 ft Cardi B
  • Pretty Hurts - Beyonce
  • Beautiful Girls - Sean Kingston
  • I Don't Care - Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber
  • Good Feeling - Flo Rida

Truth be told, I actually have a few of these on my cleaning playlist. What I gather from this information is that when we listen to music while we clean, we really like to belt it out. 

Heck, I've even used the broom as a microphone and, yes, sometimes as an air guitar. 

Do you listen to music while you clean? What are your go-to songs?
