Daft Punk anthem Get Lucky has been named the record us Brits want to hear the most as the clock strikes midnight on New Year's Eve. It has also been revealed that Ylvis What Does The Fox Say is the tune most likely to see a dance floor scarper to the bar.

In a survey to assess what the nation wants to hear this New Year's Eve, the French duo have reigned supreme. In second place, country and EDM meet with Aviici's Wake Me Up and in third comes Robin's Thicke's unstoppable Blurred Lines.

On the other side of the coin, DJs across the country will want to avoid pressing play on Ylvis' ear worm What Does The Fox Say as the nation has called it the most annoying record of the year. Following closely behind is sledge-hammer licking twerk-star Miley Cyrus, with Wrecking Ball. In third place comes pop brat Justin Bieber with his pun-tastic Beauty And The Beat.

It has been a storming year for Daft Punk, returning to the charts after a five year absence. The record features vocals from Pharell Williams and the guitar prowess of Chic legend Nile Rogers, an irresistible combination, making it Top 10 in 32 countries with over 7.2m copies sold worldwide.

Alongside bona fide party anthems, the survey ' conducted for free music streaming service blinkbox music ' also revealed the nation has a soft spot for a folk track to see in the New Year. Following their songs peppering TV ads and countless X Factor auditions, toe-tappers The Lumineers (5th) and Passenger (8th) will mark midnight for many with a gentler sound.
