Some call it “self-care,” others “avoidance,” but whatever it is, level it up.
Spotify has released a list of the 20 most relaxing songs in the world. You might be surprised that Enya’s “Sail Away” didn’t get her No. 1.
Enya, if you’re reading this, you’ve been robbed. If your album isn’t playing now, we’d be very upset about it.
Ed Sheeran’s “Perfect” and “Thinking Out Loud” came in at No. 1 and No. 2.
Get those trucks out of your head now.
This list was compiled after the Spotify team analyzed 76,000 songs from people’s chillout playlists.
From this, they were able to reveal the top 10 healing artists.
Norah Jones is also not on the list, but John Legend and Coldplay are on the list, so they will reach out to Spotify headquarters.
In fact, only one woman made the top 10.
Billie Eilish has held the torch for all female artists. So either women are too angry, or they are not taken seriously enough as artists. That in turn angers the women. Ah, the vicious cycle never ends.
On the title of the most soothing artist was Pitram, a Bollywood film composer, instrumentalist and singer.
If you want to relax today, go for an Ed Sheeran or a Pittrum.
Enya and Norah Jones will be disappointed, but hopefully they’ll be able to channel that negative energy into more songs about sailing and flying.
