2017 Pop Culture: Music

I’ve been listening to Spotify for about 2 and half years now I think. And this was the first year that I learned that at the end of the year you can look back and see how many minutes of music you listened to, your top artists, top genres, etc. I think this feature is pretty cool! It also serves as a motivator to not be so much a creature of habit and try out new music, lol. These stats aren’t a very accurate look at my music listening habits, because for probably 90% of the year I listened to Apple music (I haven’t subscribed since August I believe), CDs, and the radio. I thought I would still share them anyway.


My favorite songs of 2017 are:
  1. Congratulations – Post Malone (clean)
  2. Let you down – NF
  3. New Rules – Dua Lipa
  4. Wolves – Selena Gomez
  5. Sky Walker – Miguel, Travis Scott (clean)
  6. Butterfly Effect –Travis Scott
  7. Unforgettable – French Montana (clean)
  8. Shape of You – Ed Sheeran
  9. Thunder – Imagine Dragons
  10. Passionfruit – Drake (clean)
  11. Outta My Hair – Logan Paul

1800+ minutes of music is impressive, but I wish I had known to check my stats for 2016. With college, if I wasn’t listening to a lecture or materials from professors I was listening to music. I must have listened to hundreds of hours of music!! I think 2017 was a pretty good year in music. One of my favorite moments in music this year was hearing NF’s song “Let You Down”, on all of the secular radio channels.
