Every few years I like to look at the list of songs I’ve liked in Spotify so I can see who my favorite artists are. It’s not that I don’t know who they are, it’s just interesting to quantify them and sometimes I’m surprised who is present and absent from my Top 10 list.
The last time I did this was just a year ago, but I think both Spotify and COVID have changed my tastes a lot more than a typical year would have.
Here’s where it currently stands, in order of total number of liked songs.
- David Byrne
- The Naked and Famous
- Max Avery Lichtenstein
- Ludovico Einaudi
- The Connells
- Lucy Wainwright Roche
Changes since 2019 (with explanation)
Added: The Naked and Famous (went to see in concert and great new album in 2020), Max Avery Lichtenstein (new album and discovered old ones), The Connells (a band I liked in college that I rediscovered), and Lucy Wainwright Roche (known, but started liking more)
Removed: Brett Dennen (no new material and just grew tired of him), Iron & Wine (same reason), Beatles (George Harrison obsession died down), Two Lone Swordsmen (not liking newer material as much).…
