Last week, Spotify released everyone’s 2018 stats of what they listened to, how long they listened, and all that fun stuff. I first started listening to Spotify in college once I realized that Pandora kind of sucked. With Spotify, I like that you can listen to individual songs or create your own playlists, instead of just listening to a “radio station” of related songs.
I use the free version of Spotify, because I’m too cheap to pay for premium. I used to use Spotify a lot in college, when I wasn’t watching all nine seasons of Scrubs during the fall of my senior year, and now I only use it a little bit when I’m on my computer at home or for my running playlist. At work, I listen to podcasts, and I use iTunes for that.
- 6,930 minutes listened (From what I’ve seen other people share on social media, my minutes seem to be on the low end. If I listened at work, then I think my numbers would go up. But I like my podcasts too much.)
- Fall Out Boy was my top artist (Fifth grade me would be happy that I still listen to FOB 13 years later.)
None of the top songs surprise me because all of those are on my running playlist: “The Kids Aren’t All Right” by Fall Out Boy, “Bad Liar” by Selena Gomez, “Delicate” by Taylor Swift, “Heart Skips a Beat” by Olly Murs, and “Overboard” by Sammy Adams.
- Oldest song: “What Is And What Should Never Be” (1969) by Led Zeppelin
- Listened to more Sagittarius artists like Taylor Swift and Charlie Puth more than any other star sign (This is a really weird stat…)
I logged into Spotfiy on my computer at work to have it there and hope to listen a little bit more, especially now that it’s reasonable to listen to Christmas music 24/7.
Do you use Spotify? Did you check out your Spotify Wrapped? Did anything surprise you?
