Swinging saturdays is a musical meme hosted by Ice Cold Passion, to share our passion for music. The goal is to make a top 5 (or Top 10) for whatever genre or artist you like or get creative and share a theme based music top 5. For example a bookish soundtrack, funny songs, song to listen to on a rainy day top 5.
First of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR! to all of you!!!
I hope you have had a wonderful time, we here in the Netherlands are still in lockdown so everything was totally different this New Years eve, first of all no fireworks were allowed, not that anybody cared because there was still a lot going into the air. People in our town have been firing off fireworks for 2 months already. We had a very relaxed New Years Eve, we spend part of it at home, and partially at my sisters.
So now for todays top 10, of course we are getting in to the musical year 2020. Even though half of the live performances have been cancelled, in the beginning of 2020 I still visited some concerts. And of course I have listened to a lot of music during the year. Let's get into the stats shall we?
According to Spotify, I have discovered 554 artists, listened to 459 different genre, my favorites being Rock (no surprises there), new Americana, dutch rock, modern rock and space rock. The last one is kind of a surprise, what the hell is space rock? If anyone knows let me know because I haven't the faintest clue. Oh, and I am a pionier! Meaning I find music before it gets famous, always nice to know.
We let's look at my favorites of 2020 according to Spotify there are a few surprises for me here as well.
