Listening Trends 2015 Q4

Five Iron Frenzy Manga Shirt

This was not a big quarter for listening to music for me. That’s mostly because Sam and Stella were born and so I didn’t have much ability to listen to music as I needed to be able to hear if they were crying or if someone needed help with them. According to I went from 1,104 scrobbles in Oct to 288 in November.

  1. Beebs and Her Money Makers (94 listens) – one of the songs came up randomly in Amarok which led me to listen through the albums a few times.
  2. The Beatles (55 listens)
  3. Kenny Clarke (44 listens) – A Fresh Air review of a new collection got me interested in him so I added it to my Spotify tracks. Really fun music.
  4. Anberlin (34 listens)
  5. DJ Cutman (33 listens) – I don’t know why, but I ended up with a lot of DJ Cutman music on my new phone and since I don’t like to use bandwidth while I’m driving, I’ve listened to it a lot in the car.
  6. Ignacio Cervantes (32 listens)
  7. Fall Out Boy (29 listens)
  8. Danny Elfman (28 listens)
  9. Katy Perry (26 listens) – all from Scarlett requests
  10. Relent K (25 listens)
  11. Five Iron Frenzy (24 listens)
  12. Jonathan Geer (19 listens)
  13. Vampire Weekend (18 listens) – heard a song so I wanted to re-explore the band. Some of the songs still hit me hard and others have faded.
  14. Sergei Prokofiev (17 listens)
  15. Anamanaguchi 16 listens)
