Oh it’s the most wonderful time of year, it’s Spotify Wrapped day! Every year I get overly exciting for a personalised playlist and stats about who I’ve been listening to this year, even though I already know because I’m the one doing the listening. Either way, this is a great old day.
Every year I document my stats on my blog, more so for myself, but if you fancy a gander, you can find them all here: 2015, 2016, 2017.
Top 5 Artists
1) Bastille (Last Year: 1)
It’s not been long since my last edition of Most Listened To but we’ve bumped it up the schedule a bit as I’m spending much of the next month travelling around, so here’s some of the tracks I can’t stop listening to at the minute.
Catch the songs I was loving a few weeks back here. The only rule we have here is that only one song per artist can be featured in the top 10.
1) Quarter Past Midnight – Bastille
Bastille’s first track from their as-of-yet titled third album dropped last week and it’s my song of the week, month, year, century. This song really does mark a slight change in Bastille’s genre, they keep describing this upcoming album as an ‘apocalyptic party album’ and Quarter Past Midnight is exactly that. It’s got levels on levels, synth on synth and it’s as lyrically polished as we expect Bastille songs to be at this point.
Hello friends, music lovers and people who accidentally clicked this link whilst scrolling through Twitter but have now been ensnared by my devilish good looks and my fancy new blog interface.
A few weeks ago I kicked off a new series all about the songs that I’m actually listening to all the time, as presented to me via my favourite online gizmo, Obscurify. Last time’s made sense, it was generally all current tracks and stuff that’s been around recently or from my favourite artists. One slight adjustment I’ve made is to only feature one song from each artist, as the recent album releases from The Wombats and Charlie Barnes did begin to dominate.
This time I’ve kinda gone all over the place, from murderous album tracks to one of the greatest karaoke songs of all time.
1) STRANGERS – SIGRID
This song featured as number 4 in my last post, it’s been a slow burn for me. You know, from listening to almost all the time to ‘I can’t sleep with good conscience unless I listen to this song whilst brushing my teeth before bed’. If that’s not the mark of an earworm, I don’t know what is.
