Spotify Organize Your Music

Post by Jirin » Tue Jun 30, 2020 7:10 pm

I just because aware of an analytics tool offered by Spotify that gives you access to analytics data for your playlists and shared tracks. It rates them on several qualities detected, and you can also fetch the data set and plug it into other tools.

Just for fun, here's a look at my data.

Top 10 genres:
Rock (499)
Alternative Rock (399)
Art Pop (303)
Art Rock (287)
Permanent Wave (248)
Indie Rock (228)
Dance Rock (204)
Classic Rock (182)
Roots Rock (166)
Modern Rock (149)

Liveness (This is a prediction of how likely it is the track is live based on crowd noises):
Highest: Johnny Cash - The Man Comes Around (96)
Lowest: Outkast - B.O.B. (3)

Valence (This is a measure of how positive and upbeat it is):
Highest: The Stranglers - How To Find True Love And Happiness In Present Day (98)
Lowest: Brian Eno - Discreet Music (3)

Acousticness:
Highest: Nico - These Days (99)
Lowest: Blanck Mass - Rhesus Negative (0)

Speechiness:
Highest: Frank Ocean - Facebook Story (69)
Lowest: Hercules and Love Affair - Iris (2)

Popularity:
Highest: Ariana Grande - no tears left to cry (82)
Lowest: Tindersticks - A Night In (4)

Edited the list because initially I was filtering by one genre.

It's an invented term to include alternative rock radio music basically. It's weird because i don't see the relationship with New Wave, except because it was the music that radio format adopts time later.
