Let’s take a look at my Last.fm account for last year, which I enjoy doing at the start of each year. The Orion Experience took the top spot. They weren’t even in my top 10 artists of 2017. Suburban Legends and The Aquabats also broke into the top 10 after not being in it in 2017. Звери dropped from number 1 to number 3, but Hayley Kiyoko went from number 10 to number 4.
Here’s my full top 11 (since 10 and 11 were tied).
Cosmicandy by The Orion Experience takes the top album spot, which isn’t a surprise to me because I’ve been listening to The Queen of White Lies, Obsessed With You, and The Cult of Dionysus off that album a ton.
Here’s the top 10 albums.
These were the top 10 tracks of 2018 for me. Only one song isn’t in English, just like 2017.
Spotifywrapped.com gives some interesting highlights from Spotify:
- I started 2018 by listening to Для тебя by Звери.
- The first artist I discovered was Big Black Delta… and I have no idea who they are right now.
- I listened to 10,675 minutes listening to Spotify.
- I spent 7 hours listening to The Orion Experience, my top artist.
- My top artists were The Orion Experience, Camila Cabello, Suburban Legends, Звери, and Let’s Get It. I wonder how Last.fm doesn’t have Camila Cabello higher? I listened to her a lot. Sometimes Last.fm tracks artists with different names. For example, if a song features another artists, it might be considers “Artist A featuring Artist B,” separate from both A and B.
- Top songs were We Don’t Care, Carnivore, Hit Me Up, Into It, and The Queen of White Lies.
- Top genres were pop, indie, rock, punk, and hip hop.
- My top 100 playlist was generated and can be found here or below.
- I listened to non-mainstream artists 80% more than the average Spotify listener.
- My oldest song played was “Did You Ever Have to Make up Your Mind?” by The Lovin’ Spoonful.
- I listened to more Pisces artists, which Spotifywrapped notes includes Camila Cabello and Kesha, than any other sign. Hm, and I’m a Pisces too.
- It suggested I broaden my horizons with this playlist.
I saw some concerts:
- Suburban Legends in Downtown Disney – 3 times
- Goldfinger with The Suicide Machines, Buck-o-Nine, and Suburban Legends at the House of Blues, Anaheim
- The Fury of the Aquabats 20th Anniversary show with C.J. Ramone
And I watched some musicals:
- The Book of Mormon at Segerstrom
- Allegiance at the Aratani Theatre
- The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Jurassic Park at the Rockwell: Table & Stage
- Dear Evan Hansen at the Ahmanson Theatre
- Wicked at the Pantages
