MOST LISTENED TO

best tracks november

Most Listened To is a little series we dip into every now and then to share some of the tracks that I’m loving at the minute. I log into Obscurify to analyse my Spotify data and pick out the top 10 most listened to tracks of the last six weeks, though I do kind of cheat and set a rule so that there can only be one song per artist represented.

Since my last ‘Most Listened To’ post I’ve been settling into a new job, running a hell of a lot for Movember and trying to settle back into a ‘normal’ life after ten months of alternating between working for myself and travelling, it’s been a year.

1) Baby – Clean Bandit + Marina + Luis Fonsi

It’s no secret that I am a HUGE Marina Diamandis fan, I truly believe she’s one of the most talented lyricists of our time and brings such a unique viewpoint to pop that others simply don’t have.

As a long time Marina stan, would I have ever seen a collaboration with Clean Bandit coming? Of course, they dropped a track at Glasto last year and Marina’s boyfriend is bloody in the band. Would I have expected a Luis Fonsi collab?

Fuck no.

But I fucking love it. This is a sad bop, like ‘Happier’ below. It’s a certified tune, Marina’s angelic voice ties with Fonsi’s really well and they make this track endlessly fun, the choruses are frequent but not repetitive, the message is clear and the beats are mint. BANGER.

My Year in Music

It’s time for all of that year end type stuff, and I’m kicking off with a short post on the music I’ve listened to this year. This isn’t my favourite, or what I consider the best, these are the stats Spotify e-mailed to me on my music consumption throughout the year.

Last year I made a post on my Spotify Year in Music, sadly they axed this featured for 2016. Everyone has been given a customised playlist (Spotify Wrapped), although today everyone should be receiving an e-mail containing some more stats! This seems to be in response to many, including myself, complaining about this year end feature compared to last’s.

This e-mail of stats isn’t much, but I’ll take it.

Top 5 Artists:

My Year in Music

This picture is so grainy, but natural light is a luxury during winter in the UK

Today Spotify released their ‘Year in Music’ feature, which tells you all about your music preferences throughout the year as well as what was popular globally! This is the first year I’ve had Spotify for long enough to get the benefit of Year in Music, as last year I only started using Spotify again, after not using it for years, in December.

If you don’t like Maroon 5, turn back now.
