In December Spotify decided to let me know that I listened to the same sort of music that I did last year (2019)
Obviously or not so obviously I am a creature of habit but I thought that I had got myself out of that rut and was exploring new things.
The usual favourites Queen, the Fratellis, Paul Simon but also Steve Young and Dave Hanson whom I had seen live in 2016 at the Bedford. I have also seen Queen and Fratellis live as well.
My song was actually by Jon and Vangellis- “somehow I’ll find my way home.” I can visualise myself at a football match in Villa Park and this being played over the tannoy.
The analysis went on to let me know that i listened to 42 new artists and 79 genres.
Whilst my artists ranged from 1970 to 2010’s it seems I am very much a 70’s listener.
One of the more strangest things is I am in the top 29% of listeners to “Mouldy Old Dough” by Lieutenant Pigeon. I must assume that this is not a big song worldwide. I heard this song at a youth club disco in the 80’s and it came up on my ‘suggested listening’ Not sure that I have listened to it more than twice.
For 2021 I have vowed to listen to more up to date music to become less of an ‘old fogey’
However I some of my family share my musical taste (but some don’t) so I’ll keep recommendations!!!!
