Ever wondered what kind of music produces the most productivity?

In search of the most popular music to code to, recruiting company KO2 conducted a study by analyzing various Spotify playlists curated specifically for coding before determining the most popular songs and artists amongst coders.

Their study analyzed over 58,000 songs, with The Weeknd's "Blinding Lights" coming out on top. Second place was a tie between Hans Zimmer's "Day One" and [bds.u]'s "French Inhale, followed by Idealism's "Both of Us," Daft Punk's "Solar Sailer," and two additional tracks by Zimmer: "Cornfield Chase" and "Time."
