Coldplay Tops List Of "Bands Who Can Helps You Sleep"
Posted by Mitch Michaels on 04.08.2008

Hotel chain conducts survey to find who puts people to sleep...

-

A British survey from hotel chain Travelodge has shown that Coldplay is the music of choice for people trying to get to sleep.

The band topped a poll asking over 2,000 people which music they used to help them sleep. James Blunt, Snow Patrol, Take That and Norah Jones made up the top five.

Travelodge said: "The research shows that we are increasingly relying on slow, sleepy music and unchallenging books to take our minds off the pressures of modern living, to help us switch off and get to sleep at night. Coldplay seem to hit just the right spot among Britain's insomniacs."

The study showed that 87% of those questioned no longer used the traditional method of counting sheep. Women got to sleep by running through tasks they needed to do the next day, while men favored counting their money as they drifted off.

my question is... where does Radiohead and U2 got on this list?

But, wait...I'm listening to Coldplay right now and I haven't fallen asleep yet.

Look, the first verse just started and I'm still wide awake -

What's with the bad lolcat impression in the title?


Coldplay is boring though. This is fact.

I use music to help me get to sleep a lot and find what I sleep best to is music I like. I can sleep equally well to loud assertive music as I can soft, mellow music as long as I like it and feel like listening to it that particular night.

Is this meant to be an insult to the band? Is it meant to say they're boring? Well if that's it, I must think OK Computer is one of the most boring albums of all time

What's wrong with Coldplay sending you into Dreamland? I use U2's Unforgettable Fire to sometimes help me sleep, it soothes me. Doesn't mean I find U2 boring or UF a crap album. I might try listening to Coldplay next time I'm unable to sleep, see what happens

It's not like hearing the Coldplay songs makes one want to die or disappear or destroy the radio.
