You’re more likely to listen to classical music if you live in north London

It’s been a week of stats showing that people who live in different areas of London have *totally* (read: slightly) different tastes.

There was the map that showed personality type correlated with borough, the infographic revealing that people from different areas of London like to do different things and the graphic that showed we all have different dogs. Now, a new study has revealed that our musical choices relate to our choice of home too.

Apparently 25 percent of north Londoners listen to classical music on their commute compared to ten percent of south Londoners. (Southerners have more eclectic taste, choosing pop, rock, heavy metal, country and reggae.)

Most car-commuters are also classical fans, while heavy metal is popular with cyclists and, er, bangin’ Christian tunes are the top choice for bus riders.

Anyway, more than 50 percent of people listen to music on their commute – with more of us listening in the morning than in the evening. To be honest, it doesn’t matter what you’re tuning in to, as long as you’re not playing it out loud on the bus.

Here‘s a cool commute playlist to enjoy.
