Furniture Request Live:

Countdown 10 Top-Streamed Furniture Songs

Furniture and music are two things that really inspire us here at AFR, but for some reason we rarely mix the two in our minds. We couldn’t help but start to wonder about the possible instances of these two powerful sources of creativity and passion crossing paths over the years. Could there really be furniture music, and what does it sound like?

Since we’re curious fans of both furniture and music, we decided to do some digging in an attempt to track down a few of the most streamed, most popular songs that relate to furniture in some way – whether through lyrics or something as simple as the song title.

While we were a bit worried that this could turn out to be an impossible musical scavenger hunt, we quickly learned that there were actually a ton of interesting and popular songs to pick from – songs about barstools, and armoires, and lampshades (oh my). We feel this is just another compelling example of the beautiful ways in which furniture can inspire art and art can inspire furniture.

If you’re obsessed with great furniture and great music like we are, we hope you enjoy this Furniture Request Live countdown. Without further ado, let’s kick off the countdown with our #10 top-streamed furniture song:

The Highwomen - Crowded Table

And a place by the fire for everyone

On the sofa with you

Run with scissors through a chip pan fire fight
Go into business with a grizzly bear
But just don't sit down 'cause I've moved your chair

Did You Know? Back in 2011, Arctic Monkeys vocalist Alex Turner told NME where the idea for Don’t Sit Down, ‘Cause I’ve Moved Your Chair came from: “That’s something someone said,” he revealed. “In fact, I said it to somebody whose chair I moved and I didn’t want them to hurt themselves.” He added, “So then we thought, ‘Well, OK if that’s what you can’t do, then what sort of ridiculous things can you do that are probably more dangerous than if you just sat down?’” more

Ariana Grande - off the table (feat. The Weeknd)

Should I be goin' too steady?

Tryin' to drown
The thought of you
Ask any ol' barstool

Jason Aldean told Sounds Like Nashville, “One of my favorite songs on the album is Any Ol’ Barstool.” He added, “I think it’s always cool to have songs like that on the record that are really more of a traditional-type thing, because I love that – I grew up listening to a ton of that stuff. I always think it’s important to have a little of that on each record.” more
