Canadian crooner Michael Buble came second while the remainder of the Top Five comprised Snow Patrol, Alicia Keys and Jack Johnson, Gigwise reports.
The study carried out by Travelodge found that 84 percent of people listen to music in bed while 25 percent fall asleep while listening to their iPods.
According to 15 percent of those surveyed, listening to music before nodding off leads to a better night's sleep, something Stevie Williams of Edinburgh's Sleep Centre firmly believes. He said, "Listening to soft, relaxing music at bedtime leads to a number of different benefits to a night's sleep. These benefits include a longer sleep duration period, fewer night time awakenings and shortening of the time it takes to fall asleep.''
Whether the findings are a result of the soothing lullaby nature of these acts' music, or their ability to make the listener lose the will to remain conscious, is unclear. Either way, expect a surge of Coldplay sales among the insomniac demographic.
