Coldplay are the music act most likely to send us to sleep, according to a survey.
Canadian Michael Buble was second on the list of what people listen to when they want to nod off, while Snow Patrol was third.
The research, conducted by Travelodge, revealed 84 per cent of us listen to music at bedtime because it contributes to a good night's sleep.
The study also found that one in four people fall asleep with their iPod on, while 13 per cent say they have "nice dreams" after listening to music.
Stevie Williams, sleep expert from the Edinburgh Sleep Centre, said: "Results from various sleep studies undertaken with a variety of male and female groups has indicated that 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."
Also in the top ten are Alicia Keys, Jack Johnson, Taylor Swift and Leona Lewis.
