Eerily accurate! Spotify can guess what you were listening to 15 years ago
Even the most cutting edge of music fans will want to dip their toe in their own musical past just to get that hit of sentimentality.
Listen, just because you're very much into Lorde and Run The Jewels and The National and Kendrick today, that doesn't mean you weren't into Garbage (the band, not a description) and All Saints and En Vogue and Robbie Williams back in the day.
And that is totally fine, there is nothing to be ashamed of, because we're all adults here and if you can't stand up and admit that this is a total freakin' chewn, then we can't be friends with you.
Spotify know this too, and have created a Time Capsule application, that really accurately guesses what you were probably listening to ten, fifteen and twenty years ago...
We tested it out on three people here in the JOE offices, and the results were universally very, very accurate.
Sure, there were one or two songs on there that weren't exactly spot-on, but the hit rate out of 50 songs is super high.
