Despite the staggering variety of music available for listening online, a national survey of more than 1,000 showed that most Americans favor classic rock and pop music.
The Wakefield Research survey, commissioned by Citrix, which also asked about cloud computing literacy and habits, found that if listeners could access an artist’s collection via the cloud, most would choose legends such as: The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and Michael Jackson. But they haven’t completely let go of modern music – Eminem, Maroon 5 and Coldplay also made the Top 10 list.
Top 10 artists mentioned most in the survey include:
1. The Beatles2. Rolling Stones 3. Michael Jackson 4. Bon Jovi 5. Pink Floyd 6. Bruce Springsteen 7. Eminem 8. Maroon 5 9. Led Zeppelin 10. Coldplay Other Cloud Survey Fun Facts:
