I spent 40,275 minutes on Spotify listening to music.
That equals about 671 hours and close to 2 hours of music on the service alone.
And I have a lot of vinyl which also gets listened to, YouTube also gets some of my attention and various CD’s and DVD’s of artists.
In other words, I’m madly in anger with music.
I listened to 86 different genres. But I’ll take that with a big asterisk as Spotify needs to break down musical styles in many little categories so their algorithms can get down low.
And the top 5 are listed as follows:
It’s a pretty common theme that the music is either Rock or Metal. And who comes up with a genre called “Album Rock”.
What does “Album Rock” even mean?
But in the space of 365 days, I listened to 819 different artists.
And I remember in 1988, I purchased 8 albums and copied about 20 other albums from friends onto cassettes. From those albums, some were from the same artists. For example, I purchased “And Justice For All” and dubbed “Kill Em All” from Metallica.
Even if it was 28 different artists, that number is nothing compared to 819. And any new artist trying to make a dent to get peoples attention is up against the history of music on streaming services plus all the new releases that come out each day.
From a podcast point of view, “No Fucking Regrets” from Robb Flynn was my main one.
It’s cool to see a musician doing different things. Apart from the podcast, Robb also does “Electric Hour Fridays” on YouTube/Facebook in which he drinks beer and plays through songs from Machine Head’s catalog along with cover songs. And he does his “General Journal” posts.
My top five artists vis Spotify are Free Spirits Rising, Coheed And Cambria, Daughtry, Disturbed and Dokken.
And that’s the summary of my Spotify Wrapped.
