Decades in Music

Since my wife bought me my first in iPod in 2003, my music listening patterns could a) be better described and b) highly focused on new music.

I looked at the average listens by decade to prove this out in more detail:

  • 2010s:  18.39 minutes per song (965 hours spent listening to music in 2010s) – still too new, but will likely pass 2000s
  • 2000s:  25.52 minutes per song (3882 hours spent listening to music in 2000s)
  • 1990s:  17.43 minutes per song (1875 hours spent listening to music in 1990s) – impressive since all this music would be old at time of data collection
  • 1980s:  9.19 minutes per song (149 hours spent listening to music in 1980s)
  • 1970s:  8.87 minutes per song (42 hours spent listening to music in 1970s)
  • 1960s:  9.64 minutes per song (32 hours spent listening to music in 1960s)

So, picking favorite albums from decades earlier than 1990s is highly influenced by what I still listen to and not necessarily what I loved at the time.

Its still fun to look through the data and see favorites from yesteryear (links will light up, when i put content out there)
