It's been a shit year. Many of us would not have made it through without the uplifting quality unique to music. If you use the Spotifies, I'm guessing you've checked out your Wrapped slideshow. I thought it might be fun to show off some of the results.

No surprise to anyone here, but mine are a bit all over the place. I just hope these files display properly.

my listening this year had been low as been so busy work wise and not commuting anymore.

11,000 minutes of listening.

Divinyls was my top track of 2020 in terms of number of streams

I'm fortunate to be in a position to listen as I work. Do you know how many times you steamed "Divinyls"?

What the fuck is Indie Poptimism? Is that what THE WLDLFE are considered? I'll have to give them a listen.

I don't think it said.

I doubt it's that many - I haven't listened to much of anything this year, been too damned busy.

Well thanks,I wasn't paying any attention and was least bothered about the genres. 

Just googled. 

"Rockism is the belief that rock music is dependent on values such as authenticity and artfulness, and that such values elevate the genre over other forms of popular music.[2] A rockist may also be someone who regards rock music as the normative state of popular music[3] or who promotes the artifices stereotyped with the genre.[4][2] Poptimism (or popism[1]) is the belief that pop music is as worthy of professional critique and interest as rock music.[5] Detractors of poptimism describe it as a counterpart of rockism that unfairly privileges the most famous or best-selling pop, hip-hop, and R&B acts".

Another Indie Poptimism band that i like.

Haha. I was way off. I thought it was a combination of "Pop" and "optimism," and, therefore, would be uplifting Pop music. 

But, by that official definition, Indie Poptimism wouldn't be a genre. It's an idea. 

Anyway, I'm gonna check out those bands you mentioned.

    • 3/3 for me.. looking forward to this one!
    • Yep - Brilliant track. I think my favourite by these guys still has to be ‘In The Name Of Metal’ 
    • Yup. Most reviewers are a waste of time. 
    • The media will do what it has always done....it will switch to whatever president/party is in power and go after them at every opportunity....people have short memories, they went after Bill Clinton and the Dems without mercy over his sexcapades.... although Trump has set the bar considerably lower (underground) as to what constitutes bad/stupid behaviour so we will have to see how long it takes for the mainstream media to forget about Trump.... actually since Trump isn't really going away and will be telling anyone who listens that he will be the Republican candidate in 2024, the Dems may be looked upon with relief/favor for quite some time.... As for the Dems having their way in the 3 houses...I expect them to tear themselves apart at the seams with the progressives (regressives) fighting the moderates and getting very little of substance done, heck they may have to get moderate Republicans to work with them!!....just like the Reps in their first 2 years with Trump, they should have done a lot more but ended up fighting amongst themselves....
    • Ya know buddy, I will be honest with you, i was experimenting with substances in this frame of my life, and I dont remember the music because it was a jr high party and they only listened to shit then, I wasnt lucky where I gota go to partys in the 80s, Rap was becoming prolific, I remember sitting tripping on Acid at this one party in high school and I started feeling violent because every fucking party I went to they were all playing the same fucking 2pac cd, and it really begin to eat at me, and as the acid kicked in I stood up and walked over to the cd changer, and i was well fucking tripping, i couldnt figure out where the stop button was, i just started pushing them all, nothing was happening, and i thought people were starting to look at me, and see i couldnt figure this out, i lost my shit and just grabbed the fucker off the shelf and walked to the window and threw it down into the driveway, music was still playing, 2pac, I dont remember alot but I remember being restrained in a bedroom by some seniors waiting on my fellow baseball teammates to show up and retrieve me, I was suspended for 3 games so I just quit baseball, fuck em, I guess from what the girl I was frying with told me, I threw their changer out and busted it into pieces, the 2pac was coming from a sony discman they had plugged into the amp, that wouldve been much cheaper to replace, point is, if some fucking Venom, or Suicidal wouldve been playing, I probably wouldve had a good party, btw, all I remember about losing my virginity, was being ultra paranoid someone was gonna walk in, putting my junk in, and not even getting 5 full pumps off before I busted, then not wanting to look at the chick again, not at school, especially not there, if you guys were into the music playing your a much better man then I.
    • That's the problem with the Dems winning all 3 branches: if things don't go exactly to plan, there's no one for the media to scapegoat, unless they go back to Hillary's "vast rightwing conspiracy" mantra. We may see the ultra-left-wing progressives like AOC, Omar, and Bernie cannibalizing the moderates. There have already been hints of it around the edges, but without the Bad Orange Man to blame for everything including global warming and tooth decay, what are they going to do?
