Many of you wrapped up 2021 last week. I, however, took the week off and I will be using the first week or so of 2022 to wrap up the things I read, knit, listened to, and more. Today it’s the music I listened to last year.
One of the things I really love about being a Spotify user is the annual Spotify Wrapped update. As a librarian, I love to collect and study data and Spotify provides lots of data in this video. While I couldn’t figure out a way to share the video, I did take screen shots so that I could share my listening habits with you.
First up, my movie soundtrack. This is silly but also sort of weirdly accurate.
Next up, my top song of 2021. This is the song that Dale and Hannah danced to at her wedding last August. It sums up their relationship perfectly. And I listened to it many, many times in the hopes that I would become desensitized so that I didn’t cry. That didn’t work, just so you know.
Here are my top 5 songs. I think this is although I’m surprised that The Avett Brothers are missing.
How about my audio aura? According to Spotify it’s hopeful and happy. I find that ironic since Dale thinks the music I listen to is mostly sad and depressing. Perhaps because the Avett Brothers didn’t make my top 5.
Here’s a look at my Top Genres. Numbers 1, 2, and 3 make sense, as does Brill Building Pop (I listen to a lot of 1960s stuff for Dale) but big band? Ummmmm . . . what?
My top artist is The Beatles. No surprise there. And since Hey Jude is my favorite Beatles song I’m glad to see it show up as the most played of all of their music.
Finally, this one sums it all up and clocks me in at listening to Spotify for a whopping 17,749 minutes last year.
That’s a lot of really good music, friends. Thanks for the summary, Spotify!
