For those of you that don’t know, every year Spotify gives their users all the details of which artists they listened to throughout the year, which songs they streamed the most throughout the year, and the genres they listened to throughout the year. This is called Spotify Wrapped. It’s basically a recap of your music listening throughout the “entire year”!
I’ve seen some bloggers and YouTubers talk about their Spotify Wrapped 2021 already. At first, I wasn’t going to do a post about it because I didn’t want to put much focus into Spotify since I’m slowly building a decent album collection. However, I changed my mind because I thought it’d be cool to look back and see how my Spotify Wrapped changes over time. So without further ado, let’s get on with the music!
If 2021 Was a Movie, This Would Be My Movie Soundtrack
•The opening credits theme: “What Do You Do for Money Honey” by AC/DC
•The song playing as I face-off against my rival dance crew: “Rock of Ages” by Def Leppard
•The song playing as I proclaim my love in the rain: “If I Could Fly” by One Direction
How Many Minutes I Listened to Spotify
I spent 12,153 minutes listening to Spotify. That’s more than 62 percent of other listeners in the United States.
My Top Song of the Year
My top song of the year was “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC. I played it 18 times. I was surprised by this because it’s not even my favorite song by the band. I thought “Gone Shootin’” would be higher than “Thunderstruck,” to be honest.
My Top Songs
1. “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC
2. “You Got Me Runnin’” by Def Leppard
3. “What Do You Do for Money Honey” by AC/DC
4. “Fat Bottomed Girls” by Queen
5. “High ‘N’ Dry (Saturday Night)” by Def Leppard
My Audio Aura
My top music moods are nostalgia and wistful. That sounds about right because I only listen to One Direction when I’m in the mood for some nostalgia (and because their music is insanely catchy).
How Many Genres I Listened to in 2021
I listened to 18 different genres this year. I guess my music taste isn’t so boring after all, haha.
My Top Genres
1. Hard Rock
2. Post-Teen Pop
3. Boy Band
4. Classic Rock
5. New Wave of British Heavy Metal
My Top Artist
My top artist was AC/DC. I was in the top 0.5 percent of their listeners this year. I spent 2,585 minutes listening to AC/DC’s music and I couldn’t get enough of “What Do You Do for Money Honey” (haha, that’s so true). Def Leppard will always be number one in my heart, however. I don’t care if Spotify doesn’t recognize that.
My Top Artists
2. Def Leppard
3. One Direction
5. Bon Jovi
I’m a bit surprised that Metallica was ranked higher than Bon Jovi because I thought I played more Bon Jovi songs (with Richie Sambora) than Metallica songs. I guess I need to show more love for Bon Jovi next year. Wait, I mean, I need to show more love for Richie Sambora, sorry.
That’s everything, people! Remember, my Spotify Wrapped is a summary of my online music listening, it doesn’t count my CD listening, which is a whole different story. On the plus side, I do enjoy looking at my Spotify Wrapped updates every year and I’m glad I finally decided to post about it this year. I can’t wait to see how my Spotify Wrapped 2022 will turn out, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves!
