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 more modern music, as EMINEM, MAROON 5 and COLDPLAY also made the Top 10 list.
Top 10 artists mentioned most in the survey include:
1. THE BEATLES
2. ROLLING STONES
3. MICHAEL JACKSON
4. BON JOVI
5. PINK FLOYD
6. BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
8. MAROON 5
9. LED ZEPPELIN
CITRIX VP/Corporate Marketing KIM DECARLIS noted, "Many Americans still do not completely understand what cloud computing is yet they spend a good portion of their day benefiting from cloud services, whether it’s connecting with friends, downloading music or working from any location. As Americans continue to learn more about the cloud it will become an even greater driver of economic growth and innovation."
