Delight Counselling

We analysed 500 public Spotify lockdown playlists to reveal the songs that are getting you through lockdown. To uncover the ultimate lockdown playlist we sorted a total of 31562 songs. Interestingly, 70% of the top 50 artists were male, 24% were female and 6% were bands with both male and females.

Lockdown will cause everyone to go through a rollercoaster of emotions. The great thing about music is that it can not only match your feeling, it can also uplift them. These songs have not been recommended by one person, these are songs that the public has repeatedly hand-selected to match and uplift emotions during lockdown.

We’ve also created the The Ultimate Lockdown Playlist on Spotify! Just click the link below to listen.


Top 50 Lockdown Songs

The top 50 songs have been ranked by the number of times they appeared in the public playlists. Some songs appeared the same number of times, this resulted in a tie. These have been marked as a tie by the letter T before the ranking position.


Most Featured Artists

There were 4 artists that appeared more than once on the top 50 list. Each artist appeared twice on the top 50 list. Queen, The Beatles and The Police are from an older era of music, whereas Future is very much apart of the modern era of music. 

Music & Mental Health

Listening to music is not only fun, it can also help your mental health. Music can influence your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.  You’ve probably noticed this most when you feel happy listening to your favourite artist or song.

The psychological effects of music can be powerful and wide-ranging. Music therapy is sometimes utilised to promote emotional health, help patients cope with stress, and boost psychological well-being. Some research even suggests that your taste in music can provide insight into different aspects of your personality.

"Music can help energise our mood and provide an outlet for us to take control of our feelings. Music is a popular way to cope with difficult times, which is why there are many people turning to music during lockdown."
