2021 Spotify Year in Review

Another year in the books and the first year in review–this one from Spotify.

I have to believe that this list is accurate, but like most years, I have my doubts about the accuracy. Here we go…

Compared to last year, I listened to less music which is surprising to me (7,354 minutes in 2020 and 6,568 minutes in 2021). I primarily listen to music while working out and this year there was a lot more working out. Prior to getting my vaccine, I was working out 2-3 times in my basement. After getting my vaccine, I was working out the same 2-3 times in the gym but for longer durations.

No surprises here. I’m guessing the East Coast Hip Hop is The Beastie Boys?

The top songs are way off. If I had to guess, I would say that “Hypotheticals” by Lake Street Dive, “Leave the Door Open” or “Smokin Out the Window” or “Blast Off” by Silk Sonic, “Careless Whisper” by Delvon Lamarr Organ Trio, “How Not to Drown” by Chvrches, or “Scavengers” by Thrice would make up my top five.

I listened to more artists this year (478 in 2020 vs. 656 in 2021).

Again, this thing is busted. New albums from Lake Street Dive, Silk Sonic, Thrice, Circa Survive, and others that I listened at least 2-3 times through and they are not on the list.

Again, this thing is busted. I listened to the entire series of Heavyweights…some 40 or so episodes at roughly 30 minutes in length.

Here’s my favorite 2021 songs.
