Late-night Spotify users close the deal with Justin Timberlake and Imagine Dragons


If you're streaming music, odds are that you're not snoozing. And if you're not snoozing between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., chances are that you might be snuggled up with your sweetheart. At least that's what the folks at Spotify are assuming when they reveal the top "after hours" tracks — the ones most popular during hours associated with late night make-out sessions.

"Top tracks streaming on Spotify between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. range from folk to pop to dance music," a Spotify spokesperson explained to NBC News via email. "But one thing in common is the male voice — whether it’s oh-so-hot Justin Timberlake’s Suit & Tie, smooth Bruno Mars’ When I Was Your Man, the sweet tune of The Lumineers’ Ho Hey or aptly-named Love Me from Lil Wayne."

Here are the top tracks for late nights, according to Spotify:

  • Radioactive - Imagine Dragons
  • Can't Hold Us - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
  • Thrift Shop - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
  • Suit & Tie - Justin Timberlake
  • When I Was Your Man - Bruno Mars
  • Ho Hey - The Lumineers
  • Love Me - Lil Wayne
  • Sweet Nothing - Calvin Harris
  • Started From the Bottom - Drake
  • It's Time - Imagine Dragons

Previously, Spotify commissioned a study to determine the songs people listen to during sex or when they want to get "in the mood." According to the study, tracks from the iconic soundtrack for classic 80s flick "Dirty Dancing" do the trick for most folks when they're getting down to business. Marvin Gaye's "Sexual Healing" takes second place when it comes to songs played during naughty activities (but first on the list of tunes that get folks "in the mood.")
