Coldplay are the band most likely to send people to sleep, according to the findings of a new survey.

Canadian singer Michael Buble was second in the poll, while Irish group Snow Patrol came third.

The top-5 was completed by Alicia Keys and Jack Johnson, who is famed for his beach side easy listening music.

The study, conducted by Travelodge, found that 84% of people listen to music in bed before going to sleep, while one in four fall asleep with their iPod on.

Fifteen per cent of adults said they get a much better night's sleep if they have listened to music before drifting off.

Stevie Williams, of the Edinburgh Sleep Centre, said that “listening to soft, relaxing music at bedtime leads to a number of different benefits to a night's sleep”.

He continued: ''These benefits include a longer sleep duration period, fewer night time awakenings and shortening of the time it takes to fall asleep.''

The music of composer Mozart and Radiohead also proved popular with sleepers. You can see the full top-10 below.
