REVEALED - The most distracting and most productive Christmas songs to listen to in the office

Worcester Editorial 11th Dec, 2023   0

RESEARCH, released this week has revealed which Christmas songs make people the most productive when played in the office – and which ones are the most distracting.

The study by csgoluck.com sourced the 200 biggest songs on Spotify and analysed their beats per miniute to determine which ones will help focus workers and which ones would divert their attention.

Among the most distracting songs were Last Christmas by Ariana Grande and The Happiest Christmas Tree by Nat King Cole. Next was Mele Kalikimaka by Bing Crosby and It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year by Andy Williams.

When it comes to the festive favourites which generate the most prodictivity, the best one is Rockin’ Around The Christmas Tree by Brenda Lee, Silver Bells by Bing Crosby and A Holly Jolly Christmas – Brett Eldredge. Surprisingly, singalong classic Fairytale of New York by The Pogues and Kirsty Macoll is the eighth best for productivity.

Below are the top tens in each category.
