A Rush Of Sleep To The Head
In 2008 Coldplay topped a Travelodge poll asking participants to name the artists they listen to at bedtime to help them drift off to dreamland. Two years later, the British band is still putting people to sleep.
Chris Martin and the gang came in first followed by Michael Buble, Snow Patrol, Alicia Keys and Jack Johnson. Taylor Swift, Mozart, Barry White, Leona Lewis and Radiohead also made the top ten.
