Brit band Coldplay is the preferred music choice to send us off to sleep at night, a survey has found.

The clean cut rock band fronted by Chris Martin topped a poll of artists lulling Britons into slumber.

The dulcet tones of James Blunt, Snow Patrol, Take That and Norah Jones completed the "kip parade" top five according to a study undertaken by Travelodge. [UK press association]

lullaby renditions of coldplay songs as hidden tracks on all their cds when you hit play.

Man, if I ever need to sleep I just throw on the latest LCD Soundsystem CD. It's so monotonous that I just feel my eyes get heavy almost instantly.

CSS is also a good solution if you're ever having sleep problems.

Everyone rips on Coldplay because it is the cool thing to do..I enjoyed some of their songs on Parachutes. High Speed and Sparks were great! Anyhoo...

Hipsters are allowed to love one mainstream band + Springsteen. That one band might as well be Coldplay.

I swear that every time I go to the Pavillion movie theater in Brooklyn, they get you good and sleep before the movie starts by playing Norah Jones argh.

A friend got free tickets and we were 4 rows back at some gig of theirs a few years ago uptown. I had no opinion of them before this show, but I must say they were one of the most boring things I've ever sat through. Even their 'rock' songs were so void of peaks and valleys that I found myself playing solitaire on my iPod: that act had way more momentum then their set. They certainly didn't seem to happy to be there.

Umm yeah...The furthest uptown they played was Radio City? Was that where it was? That was 2000. They have come a long way since then.

Umm no... The Beacon Theater, about 3 years ago, some for fan club/AOL thing. And they were boring as shit.
