The music of Adele has been voted as the most popular to fall asleep to.

In a survey of 2000 people undertaken by hotel chain Travelodge via Capital FM Adele was found to be the top artist to help people fall asleep at night.

She was followed by Coldplay, who previously topped the poll in 2008 and 2010.

Snow Patrol and One Direction also featured in the Travelodge Top Five.

Travelodge quoted Edinburgh Sleep Centre expert Stevie Williams while giving the results of the poll. Williams 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."

Earlier this month, Adele said she would only lose weight if it affected her "health or sex life".

According to The Sun, she said: "I read a comment on YouTube that I thought would upset me 'Test pilot for pies' but I've always been fine with it. I would only lose weight if it affected my health or sex life, which it doesn't."

Adele gave birth to her first child last month. In a recent interview, a spokesperson from Adele's record company XL said they didn't expect the follow-up to her hugely successful second LP, "21", for quite some time. The comment came after the news that the British indie label made £41 million in profit in 2011.

    Not got anything against her really, though not my kind of music, but does anyone else find it great that just after a quote from her on her weight, it mentions her record company are called 'XL'?

    clearly they havent listened to Sigur Ros while laying down comfortably in your bed.

    I went to a Sigur Ros concert last week. Near the end, I started to get drowsy, probably because I associate them with sleep.

    This doesn't surprise me. Adele and Coldplay are some of the most dull acts around these days.

    her music's fine. no better.

    You gotta at least agree that she has a great voice..
    SIEGE312
    I at least respect the fact that she writes her own music and has a voice. She's def not my genre, but it seems she spends less time pandering to the radio than many of her pop contemporaries. I'll listen a big girl who can sing over the dime a dozen auto-tuned Madonna rip-offs any day.
    My Last Words
    I'm not a big fan of her, but the skyfall track had a pretty good vocal performance. Now, Commence the downvotes!

    Honestly? She's one of, if not the best vocalist in pop music.
    jakka93
    you say that likes there's a lot of competition.
    Alcofuel
    The thing is, you can hear plenty of them actually sing if you take the time to search. Plenty of them actually can. Even after hearing them do it, she's one of the best.

    Honestly, Adele's Bond Song is my favorite one so far. I'm a massive Cornell/Jack White fan and I prefer it over their Bond Songs, and even over Live & Let Die which was my previous favorite. It catches the genre pretty damn well.

    ^ Beat me to it. I was about to say what a shame it is that hardly anyone has really heard of Sigur Ros!
    Kueller917
    I don't really find her bad. 21 was overhyped as ****, but what's really so bad? She's good at making strong pop tunes. Also, I need to try to fall asleep to Mono one day. I'd have the greatest dreams I'm sure.

    Adeles music makes me poop diahhrea

    Terrible grammar, bombed the spelling of diarrhea, and overall gives the impression of someone who hasn't passed the seventh grade. Why is this getting upvotes? Is Adele really that bad compared to other pop artists?

    I find Ghost by Devin Townsend is a wonderful album to listen to when you're drifting off

    Sometimes it's shameful how ignorant people can act because of or identify themselves with a certain genre of music. I find her to be an awesome singer and with what's out there today, it's nice to hear someone with a voice and an actual band behind her. I love rock and metal but sometimes reading the stupidity that comes spewing out of peoples closed minded brains is disappointing.
    Alcofuel
    That's why as much as I love good metal, punk, etc. I have a pretty strong dislike for the fanbases. Because they act so condescending and like they're experts on music when they barely even know jack shit about the genres they actually listen to. Which is usually only like three genres max, with a small amount of dabbling in two others.
    electricblue2
    Yeah, I used to be a big metal fan, these days I'm more of a pop fan and it's great getting to talk to people about music they DO like instead of listening to them waste energy crying about music that they don't.

    "I read a comment on YouTube that I thought would upset me 'Test pilot for pies' Oh my god, I burst out laughing :haha:

    What's with all the Adele hate? She's better than any other pop star out there. I'd rather listen to her than any other cookie-cutter pop star
    unyinz
    In my opinion, being "better than any other pop star" doesn't automatically mean that she's good. I don't personally hate here music, but I think that most of the posters on this site hate all pop music.
    FretboardToAsh
    Never heard her(?) stuff, I tend to sleep well with Slayer, Exodus or some other thrash band in the background, most thrash metal works well for me. Staying awake is also very pleasant with it, come to think of it.

    And Justin Beiber's new single is making its way to be officially named the best torture method on earth.
    21Placebo
    The XX's first album is brilliant to fall sleep to, very quiet and calming
    blacksoulrock
    I prefer to fall asleep to Phil Anselmo's audiobook: 'I ****ed your girlfriend last night'
    GoToSleep
    I might be the only one in the world who doesn't like her voice. I find it annoying and I think she tries too hard and over enunciates (sp?). She doesn't sound British to me she sounds way foreign because of it.
    theunforgivn
    I have a playlist on Spotify that I'll go to sleep sometimes to. But I love taking naps to Deftones!

    I don't think being able to fall asleep to an album makes it a bad album. I regularly would listen to Static Prevails and Clarity by Jimmy Eat World when I went to bed and they're 2 of my favourite albums. A Hundred Million Suns by Snow Patrol has also put me to sleep a lot. As has Viva La Vida.
    GameSkate
    I didn't heard much of her songs, but Someone Like You is definitely most boring and annoying song ever written.
    The Shroom420
    Coldplay should've been #1, so boring and soothing. Probably the guy's annoying whiny falsetto that keeps people up
    FlameOn
    I want to like Adele as I agree her non-sexual image is good for pop, but zll her singles from 21 are overplayed to the point of nausea. And when you work at a place that has a remote unknown music player, you can't simply escape .
    OJ12
    Please more rock and less crap.

    Slowdive. Pretty relaxing and great to fall asleep to especially if you're feeling melancholy or something.
    Alcofuel
    ^ This was meant to be it's own comment. Your comment system apparently sucks, UG.
    third(-)eye
    I actually used to fall asleep to Radiohead's In Rainbows, although I'd cut out Bodysnatchers.
    arnolddrummer
    Well they say that usually music with lyrics is hard to fall asleep to, but since hers are all the same, I guess it makes it easy.
    Carl LOG
    Seriously WTF? o.O I fall asleep to Ben Howard, Benjamin Francis Leftwich and any soft song by a metal band... and I'm pretty sure I'll stick with that.. and don't get me wrong I don't mind Adele.. but falling asleep to her would be annoying..
    hihi7
    Low is great to fall asleep to. Not really rock but great music. So calming.
