Spotify Wrapped 2020

#1 Post by hotspotnot »

Maybe as a follow on from the thread on people's top-5 artists, I wondered how PSB have placed in people's Spotify Wrapped? Especially in a year when they had a new album out.

Working from home for most of this year, I think I've probably listened to far more music on Spotify than ever before as it's an easy way to line up music for my home office. Although I do still listen to some artists on CD, in particular PSB.

PSB came in at number 2 in my most played artists (after Kylie at number one).

The only appearances by PSB in my top-100 tracks of the year are:

2. Happy people
14. Only the dark
22. Will-o-the-wisp
26. Wedding in Berlin 😁
Working the wheel. One eye alert and one asleep.

I only became a confirmed Pet Head this year and my Spotify Unwrapped tells me that I was in the top 0.05% of listeners to Pet Shop Boys! Hopefully I've put at least an fiver into Chris and Neil's coffers!

Top Artists

1. Pet Shop Boys
2. New Order
3. Depeche Mode
4. Gorillaz
5. The National

Top Songs

1. Hoping for a Miracle
2. You are the one
3. Will-o-the-wisp
4. Dreamland
5. Burning the heather


No shockers :)

... though to be fair the list is weighted heavily to the first half of the year when things were 'normal'. I WFH more so I don't have a commute and I suspect there would be more variety - esp in top songs.
you could say conventional ... and I could claim intentional

The Blessed Madonna has Kings Cross as her top song. I'm impressed. Image

Top 0.005% listens to PSB for me as well.It’s partly due to the fact I really only have one playlist with thousands of songs on and I set it to shuffle....it always seems to play roughly the same songs!
Senseless(Remix) by Erasure was my most played song.It is guaranteed to be on any shuffle I do within the first 10 songs!

People get chuffed over being in the top 0.005%, but really it's not the highest.

One thing I found interesting is my number 1 song out of all for me is You Are The One.
