So Spotify has collated all of my data since I joined in 2013 and here it is.
In 2013, my favourite artist was KISS and the song I listened to most was “A Day In My Life” from Five Finger Death Punch.
In 2014, my favourite artist was Black Label Society and the song I listened to most was “Angel Of Mercy” from Black Label Society.
In 2015, my favourite artist was Trivium and the song I listened to most was “Down From The Sky” from Trivium.
In 2016, my favourite artist was Kingdom Come and the song my 5 year old listened to most was “The Mighty Eagle Song” from The Angry Birds Movie. And this was the reason why I went to a Spotify Family Account.
In 2017, my favourite artist was The Night Flight Orchestra and the song I listened to most was “Gemini”.
In 2018, my favourite artist was Def Leppard, which is no surprise as their catalogue was finally issued on digital services, but the song I listened to most was “A Love Unreal” from Black Label Society.
Finally, in 2019, Free Spirits Rising is listed as my favourite artist and “We Are Here” from Free Spirits Rising is the top song.
Overall, my top five artists for 2019 are, Free Spirits Rising, Everygrey, Whitesnake, Aerosmith and Tool.
But my favourite stat is the time spent listening to music on the service.
- In 2016, it was 37,977 minutes.
- In 2017, it was 77,234 minutes.
- In 2018, it was 52,316 minutes.
- In 2019, it was 64,753 minutes.
Let’s put some of these numbers into context.
A 38 hour working week equates to 2,280 minutes.
So 64,753 minutes divided by 2,280 minutes equates to 29 working weeks of listening. Over half a working week year of listening to music and somehow working at the same time.
