Sleep loss is a widespread problem with serious physical and economic consequences. Music such as meditation for Sleep relaxation could impact upon physical, psychological and emotional states, which might possibly explain anecdotal reports of its success being an everyday sleep aid. However, there is a lack of systematic data on how widely it is used, why people opt for music for a sleep aid, or what music works; thus the underlying drivers into music-sleep effects continue to be cloudy. We investigated music for being a sleep aid over the overall public via a mixed techniques statistics paid survey (n = 651) which scored musicality, sleep habits, and also open text answers on which music will help sleep and why. In total, 62% of respondents stated that they used music to help people sleep. They reported two musical genres containing 545 artists. Regression tree modelling shown that younger people with higher musical engagement were a lot more likely to use music to aid sleep. Thematic analysis of their available text responses generated four topics that described why folks believe music will help sleep: music provides unique properties which stimulate sleep (Give ), music a part of a regular sleep pattern (Habit), music induces a bodily or state of mind conducive to sleep (Condition ), along with music cubes an internal or external stimulation that will otherwise disrupt sleep (Distract). This poll provides new evidence into the association between sleep and music in a people which ranged widely in age, musicality, sleep habits and stress levels. Specifically, the results highlight the pathways of effect between music and sleep. Diversity was found both in music choices, which reflected idiosyncratic preferences rather than some consistent musical arrangement, and at the reasons why music encourages good sleep, which went beyond simple physical/mental relaxation.
