No matter how you slice it, cleaning is a chore. But it’s possible to make it less of a chore. With the right playlist, you can amp yourself up for your next cleaning sesh and make the dusting, vacuuming, and scrubbing fly by. Because when you’re singing along and busting a move, even attempting to fold fitted sheets can be fun. Yes, we said fun.
But what are the best songs to make you want to get up and move? The most obvious answer are the ones you love. But for those of us who need a little extra inspiration, Compare the Market has us covered. They combed through 50,000 songs and more than 300 playlists on Spotify to identify the world’s 10 favorite songs to listen to while cleaning.
What were the results? A fabulous mix of contemporary hits and classic anthems. Seriously, this list has been a game-changer! We’ve listened to it while cleaning the bathroom and the kitchen. We’ve rocked out to it while vacuuming, washing the car, and drying dishes. We’ve even turned it on to have a dance party just because!
Is it all Taylor Swift? Nope. Actually none of her songs made Compare the Market’s top 10 list. But, 432 of her hits were among the 50,000 they evaluated. This makes her music the most likely to accompany a round of chores!
