With over 53 per cent of those saying they enjoyed blaring out a power ballad and 47 per cent voting for pop music, it seems we all love a musical guilty pleasure.
Edinburgh (PRWEB UK) 13 June 2013
It’s a well-known fact that we all have our own song we enjoy singing to whilst in the shower, but the most popular song to be sung behind closed shower doors is Total Eclipse of the Heart – made famous back in the 80s by Welsh singer, Bonnie Tyler.
According to a report undertaken by UKBathrooms.com, Tyler’s classic love song beat off stiff competition from the likes of Robbie Williams, Justin Bieber and One Direction to claim the top spot; and while The Shower Doctor wouldn’t confess to their preferred song of choice, they admitted that there’s no better feeling than belting out a power ballad whilst enjoying a power shower.
Director at The Shower Doctor, Kevin Thomson, commented: “With more than half of those surveyed admitting to rocking out to a classic ballad or two, it’s understandable that the more dramatic the song, the more intense the emotion – which is why it makes perfect sense that ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ tops the list for most sung song in the shower. From its inspiring lyrics to its powerful video, this song remains a legend both on the airwaves – and in the shower.”
The top five shower songs are featured below:
1. Bonnie Tyler: ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’
2. Justin Bieber: ‘Boyfriend’
3. Robbie Williams: ‘Angels’
4. One Direction: ‘What Makes You Beautiful’
5. Elton John: ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight?’
“Whilst a varied choice, it shows that the nation appreciates a catchy melody – from Disney classics to the pop tunes,” said Thomson. “With over 53 per cent of those saying they enjoyed blaring out a power ballad and 47 per cent voting for pop music, it seems we all love a musical guilty pleasure. However, it’s good to see that out of the top five, it’s predominantly a UK-based list – showing the nation’s support for homegrown melodies.”
