    Spotify Wrapped - 2020

    Who were your top 5 artists on Spotify this year now that their 'Wrapped' is out?

    Mine were:
    -Hiss Golden Messenger
    -Drive By Truckers
    -Fruit Bats
    -Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit
    -Wilco

    So is that "New Americana" or "Indie Folk"?

    Run the jewels
    The Beatles
    Car seat headrest
    Suuns

    Funkadelic had my top song, but I guess they didn't make the top bands list.

    Bob Dylan
    Little Walter
    Muddy Waters
    The Cars (my 6 year old listens to "Good Times Roll" at breakfast almost every day for some reason)
    The Beatles

    The last one shocked me as I'm not the biggest fan. I expected Neil Young/Hank Williams/Billie Holiday/Steve Earle/Guy Clark/Emmylou Harris/Nina Simone, all of whom I love and are in my regular rotation, but I guess I was on a Beatles kick for a while this summer.

    Ha! I honestly donít hate the BBís but I listen to a lot of Spotify stations, and if they come up I skip it 90% of the time.

    Yeah my results were surprising as well. Los Tigres at number 2? And I didnít realize I listened to that much Jay Z.

    Dude. You need to lay down the law. It's ok to tell a kid her music sucks.

    All this is telling me is there is absolutely no reason to get Spotify, let alone pay for it, as it doesn't seem much better than regular radio. Or Pandora. Or Prime. Or Google/YouTube.

    I blame the music industry.
    No longer stuck.

    Heh. I know that feeling. My top 5 are:

    Hamilton Cast
    Tool
    Lin-Manual Miranda
    Leslie Odom
    Nine Inch Nails

    The daughter and Mrs. have apparently been at war with my music this year.
    I've concluded that DJSapp was never DJSapp, and Not DJSapp is also not DJSapp, so that means he's telling the truth now and he was lying before.

    Based on the 40% match to my 2020 list I'd say old with good musical tastes.

    Itís all about the algorithms.

    Radio plays what the commercial sponsors tell them to play and has bullshit DJ chatter and ads. Good luck finding half the artists in the lists above on FM.

    Youtube wonít play on the phone app if you try and use another app and doesnít keep playing like Spot/Pand. Prime doesnít do a quarter of the job that Spotify does when it comes to playlists.

    That leaves Spotify and Pandora. Both try and find music that is similar, but different than what you want to hear and will keep playing tunes within the algorithm. While I wish they would be a little more adventurous, overall itís with the subscription to have multiple users within the family enjoy their music.

    Like Apple/PC you choose a platform and get stuck with it for a bit.

    Spotify is like Facebook; you have to curate the shit out of it, then it’s generally pretty pleasant. It can suck if you just passively take what it puts up.

    It appears we're both trending with the Indie Folk. Did Cotton Jones or Rose City Band come into your rotation at all? I like Rose City a lot

    So after looking at my top 100 playlist I see one song from Jay Z and one from Los Tigres and six songs from Sturgill Simpson. What are the metrics? I have a hard time believing that I listened to those 2 songs more individually than the collective 6 from Sturgill?

    I do like to sing La Puerta Negra when drunk, but it's not THAT often.

    Beastie Boys
    Black Sabbath
    Cobra Man
    A Tribe Called Quest
    Led Zeppelin

    I mostly use Spotify to bounce around and listen to new stuff, so any repeated listening makes an outsized impact on the Wrapped. Sabbath phase in March, Beasties week in September, Cobra Man in August. Tribe and Zep are staples however.
