Best Sounds For Sleep

With World Sleep Day being celebrated on 18th March, the team at Hillarys have analysed Spotify playlists to discover the best artists and songs to induce a peaceful night's sleep not only for you but for your dog too! 


After analysing the top ten sleeping playlists, the research found that the most soothing artist to send us off to sleep is The Weeknd, followed by Drake and One Direction. The Weeknd had a total of 29 songs across the 10 playlists. 



After analysing the top eight calming playlists for dogs, each song on every playlist was rated out of 100 for the following 5 genres: happy, energy, acoustic, instrumental and dance.  The research discovered that the most soothing genre of music to relax dogs is acoustic, followed by instrumental and then dance. 



To discover which artists are the most likely to relax your furry friend, we analysed the top playlist for acoustic songs which revealed that Ed Sheeran is the top artist to relax your dog followed by Taylor Swift and John Mayer. Ed Sheeran’s current highest scoring acoustic song is “The Joker and the Queen” featuring Taylor Swift.
