My 2018 Spotify Rewind

This probably isn’t the most exciting article I’ve ever shared, but I absolutely love reading my Spotify Rewind at the end of every year. Essentially, Spotify will compile all of your top-listened to songs, genres, artists, and total listening minutes into a dandy little presentation for you to watch. I feel like a person’s taste in music is an excellent indication of their personality, so hopefully my Spotify Rewind will be a great way for you to get to know me!

The first song I listened to in 2018 was “Love You When I’m Drunk” by MIKA, and the first artist I discovered was The Crests. They’re still a big favorite of mine!

I spent 17,615 minutes of my life listening to music!

My top artist if the year was Regina Spektor, with whom I spent 78 hours listening to music. If you’re interested in reading my review of her fifth studio album, Far, I’ll include the link to that at the bottom of the page.

My top artists of 2018 were Regina Spektor, Johnny Maestro & The Crests, Enya, and Keane. My top songs, all by Spektor, were “Dance Anthem of the 80s,” “Genius Next Door,” “Better,” “Lady,” and “Laughing With.” Needless to say, my favorite genre of 2018 was folk-pop. I also listened to more Capricorn artists than any other star sign.
