Billie Eilish tops ‘toilet time playlist’

Spotify data reveals what we may listen to whilst on the toilet.

It has varying names, if you’re in the North East its most likey you call it ‘netty’, if you’re in Scotland it’s ‘cludgie‘ and in cockney London it’s the ‘carsey’. There’s endless other words, including ‘crappa’, ‘bog’ and ‘john’ to describe the smallest room in the home, but what does one do to pass the time while paying it a visit?

Well, one of the most popular toilet time killers is listening to music and Uswitch has used Spotify data (by searching for toilet terms within it) to find what people are listening to when the bathroom door is closed.

The data reveals that the TikTok famous ‘Sweater Weather’ by the Neighbourhood is the song that is most listened to whilst pooping; despite originally being released in 2013, the soft-grunge track has recently found fame again nearly 10 years on, resulting in over 5 million streams in November 2020 alone.

Frank Ocean’s ‘Chanel,‘ famed for its chilled-out piano accompaniment, takes second place as it features on 38 pooping playlists, followed by ‘505‘ by Arctic Monkeys, which is yet another track with a soft keys background which the band claimed was their first proper love song.

Interestingly, all three of these songs have openly been labelled as love songs; both ‘Sweater Weather’ and ‘Chanel’ are explorations of fluidity and LGBTQ+ relationships, while ‘505’ literally refers to the hotel room number that Alex Turner’s (Arctic Monkeys frontman) girlfriend was staying in at the time he wrote this song.
