The Trade Direct Spotify Playlist is here! After polling UK tradespeople, we compiled the ultimate tradespeople mix. Find out which songs made the list.

Is there anything worse than working on site and not having good music to listen to? Whether you’re a plumber, builder, electrician or carpenter, having a solid soundtrack to your day can make even the most grueling job fly by.


Two weeks ago we teamed up with our pals at On The Tools to get the word out on social media and find the ultimate tradespeople’s work song. We asked you and by gum did you answer! The responses came in by the truckload: rock anthems, pop ballads, modern classics and old school rap – nearly every genre was covered.


By the time the polls closed there were too many excellent tracks to only celebrate one. So what did we do? We only went and made a Trade Direct Spotify Playlist.


The Trade Direct Spotify Playlist brings together some of the songs you nominated as the ultimate work songs. With 60 tracks and a whopping 4 hour+ run-time, there’s a little something for all tradespeople in there.

Here’s just a few of the tracks that make up our Trade Direct Spotify Playlist:


Wonderwall – Oasis

It’s a Long Way to the Top – AC/DC

Rebel Yell – Billy Idol

Fools Gold – The Stone Roses

Rapper’s Delight – The Sugarhill Gang

Molly’s Chamber’s – Kings of Leon

9 to 5 – Dolly Parton

R U Mine? – Arctic Monkeys

Mr. Blue Sky – Electric Light Orchestra

Any Way You Want It – Journey


And that’s just 1/6 of the whole playlist!


Don’t go thinking that this song list is set in stone. If there’s a great track to work to that you think we’ve missed, let us know and we’ll see about adding it to the list! After all, it is called the Ultimate Tradesman’s Playlist so we want to keep it that way.


To check out the list in all it’s glory and have a listen, just visit our Ultimate Tradesman’s Playlist page on Spotify.
