I listened to 33,090 minutes of music on Spotify last year. It equates to 90 minutes a day and it doesn’t include any vinyl or CDs played on my stereo system.
This involves listening to 1214 different artists.
I say it ever year.
Once upon a time the maximum records I would have purchased in a year was between 20 to 30 different artists, when I had my own money and before that when my parents were funding me, it was 8 to 12 different artists and most of em came in November for my birthday and December for Christmas.
And those artists would hold my attention for a lot longer because that was all I had to listen to.
But when you have the entire history of recorded music at your fingertips (almost), it’s pretty easy to flick between so many different artists.
And to be creative with playlists (aka old mixtapes) from so many different artists.
Like an old school playlists incorporating 80s and 90s songs (above) or a more current 2010s and above playlist (below).
Or you can combine the entire history of an artist into a playlist. Like Glen Hughes. 27 hours worth of music. There are a few more releases to add.
The same with Dio, but this time I tried to sequence the playlist like an album.
Then again Dio’s career is so wide, I was able to sequence a lot of different albums.
