The shower seems to be the go-to place for people to shed a tear, with 74 per cent of people saying they save their cries for the bathroom. It’s safe to say that we’ve all wanted a cry over the past few trying months, so with this in mind, was inspired to look deeper into what songs may have been the popular choice to accompany the sobbing and tearful moments. 

To complete this task, the website chose five synonyms for sad: emotional, heartbreak/break-up, crying, sad, and depressed. Next, the team exported the playlists that were chosen and filtered through to find the most popular songs and thus the most popular artists. From here the songs were cross-referenced. 

After surveying 57,000 people from 57 countries and trawling through 10,000 songs across Spotify playlists, the results are in. The artist that most people cry to in the shower is XXXTENTACION, with 130 citations across all playlists. Coming in second is the world’s favourite red-headed ballad writer, Ed Sheeran, followed by America’s grunge princess herself, Billie Eilish, then British singer Sam Smith, and of course singer-songwriter Adele. 

As for songs, the most popular choice to cry to is Jealous by Labrinth, which appeared 26 times across five playlists. The title of second-best tearjerker is shared by Say Something, by A Great Big World and Christina Aguilera, and Someone You Loved, by Lewis Capaldi. Fighting out a three-way tie for fourth place are Stay With Me, by Sam Smith; Say You Won’t Let Go, by James Arthur; and Dancing On My Own, by Calum Scott. Sam appeared in the top five songs and artists most featured. 

The least popular song to cry to in the shower is Harry Styles’s Falling, which was cited 17 times across all playlists. To view the complete results, visit
