Spotify- My year in music

Post by Donkey Kong Jr. » Sun Dec 21, 2014 10:01 am

So for those of you that regularly use spotify, they've done this cool little thing where you can look back on your year in music. The share button isn't working for me, so I'll just type out my results.

Do yours here:

Apparently the kind of music I'm into is pop rap 8-)

Top 5 Artists:
Kanye West
Kendrick Lamar
Jay Z
50 Cent

Top 5 Albums:
good kid m.A.A.d city (Deluxe)
Graduation (Alternative Business Partners)
My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
The R.E.D Album
Black on Both Sides

Top 10 Tracks:
Brooklyn's Finest by Jay-Z
Money Trees by Kendrick Lamar
Swimming Pools(Drank)- Extended Version by Kendrick Lamar
Mathematics by Mos Def
Compton by Kendrick Lamar
Devil in a New Dress by Kanye West
Are you... Can you... Were you... (Felt) by Shabazz Palaces
Runaway by Kanye West
gooseberry fool' Problems by A$AP Rocky
Thank You by Busta Rhymes

The majority of my music came from United States

Seasonal Favourites:
Winter: Kanye West
Spring: Kanye West
Summer: Kanye West
Autumn: 50 Cent

I spent 20381 minutes listening to Spotify last year and my ears are busiest on Wednesday with 2 hours average listening time on that day.

I thought it's a pretty cool summary of my music and no real surprises. Clearly, K West= Hot eton mess.

Post your results in the thread. What did you think of it ? Any big surprises ?

I mainly use Spotify to sample music I don't own so I don't know how representative this will be.
Top 3 genres are indie rock, indie pop and alternative rock so no surprises there, but I've got noise pop and ambient rounding out the top 5 so that's a bit more interesting I guess.

Top 5 artists:
Broken Social Scene
The National
Brian Eno
Vashti Bunyan

Top 5 albums:
The National - Alligator
Broken Social Scene - Broken Social Scene
Fennesz - Bécs
Vashti Bunyan - Just Another Diamond Day
Swan Lake - Beast Moans

Top 10 tracks:
Fennesz - Bécs
Vashti Bunyan - Diamond Day
The National - Mr. November
Vashti Bunyan - Train Song
Parquet Courts - Into The Garden
Fennesz - Liminality
Broken Social Scene - It's All Gonna Break
The National - Lit Up
Talk Talk - Time It's Time
Beirut - Scenic World (Version)

I have no favourite artist for the winter for some reason. Spring favourite was Broken Social Scene. Summer favourite was Adult Jazz. Autumn favourite was Swan Lake.
Sunday is my busiest day with an average of 0.9 hours a day. I've listened to 8117 minutes of music with spotify.

I'm a little surprised East India Youth and Adult Jazz didn't feature more heavily

Top 5 artists:
Capital Cities
Cider Sky
The Hoosiers
Coldplay (what the...seriously, I know for a fact I've listened to other bands more than them...)

Top 5 albums:
Flames (The Mixes) - Cider Sky
Safe and Sound - Capital Cities
The News From Nowhere - The Hoosiers
Falling - Discopolis
Movements - We Have Band

My top 10 tracks are more or less the same, but with inclusions from Y.O.U. and The Kooks and Joywave. It seems that I've been very consistent with who I've listened to throughout the entire year.

Probably not all that representative since I mostly use iTunes and YouTube, but...

You know why Oath, let's not lie.

It's because it's the pinnacle of modern music.

My top songs (4-10) seem a bit off though , especially as everything scrobbles to and the order and songs are slightly different.


Also, swap Off the Wall for Maxwell's Urban Hang Suite and put it at number 1 and that's the top albums sorted.

Seasonal Favourites

Winter: Stevie Wonder
Spring: Bob Marley & The Wailers
Summer: Gregory Porter
Autumn: John Legend

My ears are busiest on a Sunday, averaging 4 hours.
