Spotify rush hour

It’s safe to say that most of us enjoy listening to music while driving. We know of people who don’t drive out of the parking lot unless a playlist has been set.

Among the myriad ways of listening to our tunes these days, music streaming is one of the most common methods--and in this industry Spotify is clearly the service to beat. With over 30 million songs in its library, there’s clearly music for every type of listening pleasure. We especially like hearing the curated playlists that can be chosen based on our moods: #hugot, Sappy and Senti, Traffic Jam Blues, and Ayos! are just some examples.

And speaking of songs to listen to in traffic, we recently got data from Spotify itself on what its listeners tune in to during rush hour. The music-streaming service collated data on the most played songs from 6am to 8am, and from 6pm to 8pm. We all know these are the times when most people are on the road.

So here are the top songs played during rush hour in the Philippines.
