Perhaps you’re already fed up with people sharing their Spotify 2021 wrapped lists on Instagram, Facebook, or wherever they’re sharing. But if you’re like us you love seeing the variations on lists that reflect people’s interest and the pop music landscape.
Taylor Swift, Olivia Rodrigo and other current artists populate so many of the “wrapped” lists that allow Spotify users to view a compilation of data about their activity on the platform for the past year and then share it on social media.
Some people, like late night presenter Jimmy Kimmel, go back in time with the app.
About a minute after his monologue on Wednesday night, the presenter shared his own Spotify 2021 wrapped list with a well-known favorite from these parts:
No. 1: James Taylor
No. 2: The weirdos
# 3: Alabama shakes
# 4: Huey Lewis & The News
No. 5: Billy Joel
“Four of them were also my top five artists for 1985. After they sent me the list, they also scheduled me for a prostate exam. It was very strange. You might as well have texted me saying, ‘You’re not cool at all, in case you’re wondering.’ “
