Songs for the season
Choose Spotify as your content partner for Vodafone 4G and you won’t be disappointed: we know that people who sign up use it all the time, because we’ve seen the data that proves it! In fact, between 1 January and 22 October 2014, Vodafone 4G customers streamed more than 35 million hours of music on Spotify.
That’s the equivalent of 3,600 years worth of music! Moreover, that’s an average listening time of 40 minutes every day, proving that once you dip your toes into Spotify, you’ll be hooked.
And looking at that data allows us to reveal the yuletide tunes that the UK has been listening to most. Using data taken nationwide from 1-7 December, Spotify’s totted up the numbers and found that the 1973 classic ‘Merry Xmas Everybody’ by Slade – with the unforgettable screaming of Noddy Holder – is the UK’s most streamed Christmas tune of 2014.
Here’s the top ten in full:
The UK’s most streamed Christmas songs are:
