2020 Spotify Wrapped: Herald Edition

Graphic by Kapp Singer

Just in case your feed hasn’t been completely annihilated by Spotify Wrapped screenshots already, here are the many feelings that our Herald E-board editors have on their yearly results!

Isaac Pross: I have 55,000 songs on Apple Music, I’m not switching!

Adhya Beesam: It was entirely Indian music. Not one mention, one drop, one crumb of whiteness at all. As all things should be. 

Hamzah Jhaveri: What do you want me to say here? You want me to admit that it was mostly just Harry Styles? Huh? Not my fault I listen to his tender British voice when I’m cradling myself to sleep each night. Pretending I’m in his tender British arms… I’m going to tell everybody it was all Phoebe Bridgers, though, so it doesn’t matter.

Cathryn Seibert: My top song was something I listened to almost 200 times over two weeks in February when I was going through it. In retrospect, I really shouldn’t have front loaded the year with sad music.

Sarah Marsland: No one talk to me, I just found out I’m in Taylor Swift’s top 1% of listeners…

Elliot Lewis: According to TikTok, my top artists scream bisexual. So I guess… you figured me out, TikTok.

Avik Sarkar: My top listen was Deep Sleep Sounds, followed by Azealia Banks. Not sure what to make of that.

Robert Samec: I am a faithful member of the Apple Music family just like Isaac and knowing that he is a user of the platform makes me feel even closer to him. It is the superior music service. So what if my dad pays for the family plan? That’s not the point! My number one song? “B.I.T.C.H.” by the one, the only, Megan Thee Stallion. 

Edie Abraham-Macht: When I opened my slideshow, I had high hopes. The first song that played was “Cabinet Battle #2” from Hamilton, and then I remembered why I live in shame. 

Noah Robinson: Mom Jeans, a band named after a Bob’s Burgers joke, was one of my top musicians. What does that say about me? What does that say about my year?! I’d rather not think about it.

Rachel Calcott: No comment.
