Songs for Cleaning the House

Updated on April 27, 2011

The Top 15

In no particular order, they are:

      Dosters: As a music lover, I see a really good collection of music to clean my apartment by. Old time rock and roll would wind me up no problem, the apartment would be clean in no time.

      I like this! I usually listen to inspirational stuff - like Andrea Bocelli and other opera and gospel is really good too - but I like your choices!
