Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go: New Research Shows That 7am Is Australia’s ‘Hour Of Shower’

NEW RESEARCH REVEALS AUSTRALIA’S ULTIMATE PLAYLIST FOR SINGING IN
THE SHOWER

  • ‘Wake me up before you go-go’ rounds out a fun playlist of tunes that people sing in the shower (link to the Spotify playlist below)
  • One in five Aussies use the shower to practise their singing skills
  • The shower is a personal singing studio for those wanting to win reality singing competitions.
  • Australians have voted 7-8am as the country’s ‘hour of shower’

New research has revealed that the average household shower is, in actual fact, a secret sanctuary for aspiring Aussie singers wanting to fine-tune their vocal chords.

One in five Australians admit to practising their singing skills in the shower, with ‘Wake me up before you go-go’ by Wham! rounding out a playlist of tunes compiled by Brighter, in conjunction with Nature Research.

The song which defined pop music in the 1980s has been touted as one of the country’s favourite songs to sing in the shower by Australians when quizzed on their showering and morning habits which also revealed that 7-8am is Australia’s ‘hour of shower’.

One in 20 of those people are using their shower as their personal singing studio to practice for their shot at fame, believing that they have what it takes to win a reality TV singing competition.

And while some of us are channelling our inner George Michael, other songs that cracked the top ten for singing in the shower were ‘Africa’ by Toto and recent hits ‘Nothing breaks like a heart’ by Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus, and Lady Gaga’s ‘Shallow’.

Director for the Brighter program, Sarah Browne said “What’s better than a piping, hot shower to wake you up in the morning? Warming up your vocal chords and unleashing the singing superstar within you of course!”
