Google Trends Highlights Britain’s Coolest Cities

Using Google Trends I wanted to compare ‘Radiohead’ (Blue) and ‘Leona Lewis’ (Orange). An unexpected result is that Google breaks down the search by city, highlighting the musical taste of each region.

Oxford is Radiohead’s home city, so perhaps not surprising they favour the miserable foursome. Brighton manages to uphold it’s reputation by preferring Radiohead, as does Bristol and student-heavy Cambridge. On the flip side, Croydon, as you’d expect, is biased heavily towards Leona. What I didn’t expect was the supposedly cool, rock loving cities of Leeds, Nottingham and Edinburgh clearly favouring Leona.
