Trying to make sense of my Spotify year-end recap • Posted 21 December 2019
#Fauxnalysis


The whole Spotify year-end thing can be as right as it is wrong.

Those who study big data know that results don’t mean much until they’re assessed. I guess the same is true for these summary things generated based on number of plays. There’s nothing wrong with that, I guess. It’s generally safe to assume that the more plays you have of an artist, the higher the chance that they’re one of your favorites.

I got my results out of play surges for the year. I never really played the artists spread out, through the year. I realized the just other day that the these five somehow serve as clear moment markers for my 2019.
