    I usually stream on my phone and the fact that you can't clear Spotify's cache without deleting the app means I haven't streamed a lot on Spotify over the last year. I stream much more often on Qobuz and Bandcamp. My profile is more accurate, although it's not complete either.

    Illuminating ... but of the "Top songs" I don't think I've ever heard No. 2 and No. 5. Never heard of those two artists -- CamelPhat???

    Guilty on the rest -- Would have thought Miles and Monk and Sun Ra would have figured in there

    Most of us know about Spotify, but not all of know what this "Wrapped" business is all about. I see it's your total listening time, but in only one genre? Or it just shows what your preferred genre is?

    It's auto-generated — showing all kinds of different stats. The graphic people are posting is the summary: shows total time, most listened to genre, most listened to artists and most listened to songs.

    I find Spotify quite handy at certain times, and I do like it, but most of my listening is done either on iPod while driving, or on vinyl when I'm at home. As such, while I would stick on a lot of favourites on Spotify, I tend to use it to plug gaps in my collection, or for a quick and easy playlist, especially in advance of seeing someone in concert (hence the appearance of The National, U2 and St. Vincent in my most played). I also used it to create a playlist for the Doobie Brothers, whose catalogue I didn't know that well, beyond "the hits": I would be seeing them support Steely Dan, and wanted to familiarise myself with their back catalogue. As such, several Doobie Brothers songs have ended up in my Top 100 for 2017. A few listens of Roger Waters' Is This The Life We Really Want? album propelled several tracks from that to the top of my most played songs, including - bizarrely - the brief opening track, When We Were Young, which is somehow my most played song of the year on Spotify. I have no idea how that happened.

    36,306 minutes / 3,526 songs / 137 artists / 33 genres

    Most played: a-ha, The National, U2, St. Vincent, Roger Waters
