The ultimate top 10 soundtrack while you do your housework

02 May 2019

Get ready to grab your duster and dance the day away with these excellent tunes to listen to while you do your housework…

1. Madonna - Vogue

Strike a pose as you wipe down those windows while listening to this absolute tune from the undisputed queen of pop. Released in 1990, Madonna drew inspiration from the Harlem House Ball community in New York, an underground LGBT subculture.

2. Queen - I Want to Break Free

Channel your inner Freddie by sticking on this 1984 classic from one of the world’s greatest bands. Mercury and his bandmates actually did housework in the Coronation Street-inspired video for this song, all while dressed in drag.

3. The Foundations - Build me up Buttercup

Is there a better feel good song than this hit from 1968? Made popular with a whole new generation by the smash hit There’s Something About Mary, this song might be over 50 years old, but you’ll feel 17 again when you’re dancing along to it.

4. Avicii - Levels

Put Levels on full blast and try not to dance… It’s impossible! This timeless mega hit from Swedish superstar DJ Avicii made waves around the world when it was released back in 2011 and it definitely makes housework go quicker.

5. Train - Drive By

Following up their 2010 comeback hit Hey Soul Sister, this 2012 smash hit firmly put roots rock band Train back in the big time. These days, Drive By is a great track to put on if you fancy something a little rockier with your cleaning routine.

6. Taio Cruz - Dynamite

There are catchy songs and then there’s Taio Cruz’s 2010 smash hit Dynamite, which catapulted the British singer into household name fame. So, make your decluttering go with a (metaphorical) bang by skipping to this track.

7. Martha Reeves & The Vandellas - Dancing in the Street

A 1964 classic that needs little introduction, this remains one of the most iconic songs in American history and is still as popular as ever. Although made famous by the Motown outfit, this track has been covered by Mick Jagger and David Bowie.

8. The Spencer Davis Group - Gimme Some Lovin’

One of the most recognisable intros in British pop music, this 1966 hit by The Spencer Davis Group was apparently conceived, arranged and rehearsed in just 30 minutes. You’ll be so glad you made… yourself listen to it when you’re in housework mode!

9. Katy Perry - Bon Appetit

Almost as famous for its culinary-themed music video as the song itself, Katy Perry’s catchy 2017 hit is just the song to choose as you start cleaning down those kitchen units — just don’t forget to clean inside your oven, too!

10. Lipps Inc.- Funkytown

A disco classic for the ages, there’s no better way to feel better about doing your household chores than doing them while this 1980 hit by Lipps Inc. is playing in the background. You’ll be dancing around your vacuum cleaner before you know it!
