CV Villas has analysed more than 154 624 tracks to reveal the most popular holiday songs of all time

The company revealed in a press statement that it wanted to inspire holidaymakers stuck on what to add to their playlist, knowing that there’s no better place to listen to some good music than on vacay. 

The most featured track across all holiday playlists was MEDUZA’s massive summer tune Piece Of Your Heart, followed by Calvin Harris’ Summer, which has been added to 235 playlists. In third position is Dance Monkey by Tones and I, found in 218-holiday playlists.

Pete Brudenell, Head of Marketing at CV Villas, said music and travel go hand in hand.

“This research provides a great snapshot of the most popular songs that people choose to accompany their holidays. Interestingly, it’s the tracks that have come out in recent years that featured most heavily in the top ten of all time, rather than older tunes or retro classics. Whether you’re dancing round a pool with a group of friends, or having a romantic meal with your partner on the terrace, we hope the project sparks conversation and inspiration for your next trip.”

Using the findings from the research, CV Villas has created the ultimate poolside playlist that contains the 50 most popular tracks from holiday playlists.
