Here are some interesting things we learned:

  • 2 out of 3 people would cut their workout short or even completely without their music/headphones.
  • 62% of Americans say a day without music is worse than a day without human interaction. In fact, 73% of Millennials have worn their headphones to avoid interaction with other people.
  • In an interesting twist on what songs make us want to move, respondents of all ages said they would most want to listen to the classic Eye of Tiger by Survivor, distantly followed by:
    • ·         Roar by Katy Perry
    • ·         Chariots of Fire Theme
    • ·         Stronger by Kanye West
