My 2020 in Spotify
Every year, Spotify, my choice of music app, gives every user a playlist of the top 100 songs you listened to over the year. Until now, it’s been a neat bonus to see how you were feeling in that year. Whenever I’m in a nostalgic mood, I like to turn on the lists I have from 2017, 2018, and now 2019. 2020 was crazy in the US, and the world with the Corona virus pandemic. So, I’ve been waiting to listen to this since March. It’s cool that Spotify gives you this for December.
I’ve never had a year like 2020. On one hand, a large portion of this year was utter hell for me. Going through an ugly friendship breakup in an ordinary year is hard enough. This in a pandemic year where you can’t visit friends or family, can’t safely go out and do social activities, and everything is online has to be a layer of hell. Despite all the bad, I feel looking back that this will be a positive year.
On the other hand, because I finally got the support from therapy, I’ve had great personal growth. I still don’t feel like I have my shit together, but hey, progress is progress. I have been working on my problems this year, and not been a total potato while unemployed. Nothing like being laid off, and the world shutting down 2 months later. Thankfully I got unemployment. At this point, life is one day at a time.
On initial glance of this list because I just discovered this list today, my impressions are: Nostalgic, wistful, angry, depressed, heartbreak, Chillin, Shock, delusions, glimpses of a new life.
This playlist might as well be a glimpse into my soul.
My life on Spotify, summed in 6 hours, 58 minutes. While I doubt anyone will listen to all 7 hours, hopefully I can introduce a new song or two you haven’t heard before. Anyway here’s my Spotify top 100 of the year:

You might consider writing a poem using only the titles of these songs. (And I want to read it when you do!)
