2050 songs of Spotify’s ‘Discover Weekly’ that changed my taste in music

I really do love the “Discover Weekly”-playlist of Spotify. It has introduced me to a lot of great artists and songs since its start in July 2015. For those of you that are not familiar with the product: Based on what I’m listening to and preferences Spotify recommends me 30 new songs every Monday with their playlist. Since the beginning I have collected and analysed all the suggestions in a separate playlist. This list contains now 2050 different songs from roughly 1500 different artists. I have attached it to the end of this article. Check it out.

A big thanks to Spotify for hours of great music in the last 1.5 years. This list has introduced me to quite a few new artist, which are now some of my favourite ones. After the analysis of all songs ever recommended to me by Spotify I can say with a clear conscience that this playlist has changed my music taste significantly. I look already forward to next Monday.
