This nifty website will show you your top 50 Spotify tracks and artists
Because who doesn’t like being reminded of how many times you listened to “thank u, next” on repeat
Spotify introduced its Wrapped concept app at the end of 2018, which much like Facebook’s “Year in Review,” walks users through who they spent their time listening to, and how many minutes during the year they spent listening to Spotify. This inspired one frontend developer to play with the Spotify API, to create an app that could be used year-round to see his most-played music. That app is now live and is trending on ProductHunt.
MyTop50 is super simple to use, just log in with your Spotify account and give it permissions to read your history. It also asks for write permissions, which we’ll get to why later. Once you’re signed in, the app pulls your history and displays a list of your top 50 listened-to tracks and top 50 listened-to artists.
You can choose from “Last Played,” “1 Month,” “6 Months,” or “All Time” to do a deep dive into your listening habits over time. Once you get your curated list, you can then save all (or some) of the 50 tracks to a Spotify playlist so you can listen to your most-played even more.
This is mine, and unsurprisingly the last month of listening is completely filled with tracks from the Destiny soundtracks. My all-time list is a bit more varied, with half Destiny tracks and the other half from the playlist I use to test audio equipment with.
It’s a nifty tool for those of us that aren’t paying for Spotify Premium, giving you the chance to dig through your recently played tracks to remind yourself of that banger you just listened to.
Oh, and if you’re a bit more technical and want to dig around in the code – it’s all hosted on the developer’s GitHub.
