Bauer Media has today announced the results of its search to find the advertising industry’s favourite tracks for the working day.


Stronger by Kanye West has been voted the best track for creative inspiration, with Fools Gold by The Stone Roses in second place.


Start Me Up by The Rolling Stones was chosen for starting the week with a great idea, with Who Run The World by Beyoncé the favourite for getting in the mood for a pitch.
