It’s almost 3 pm, on a Monday, and I literally just woke up. My body is still feeling heavy and my throat has been hurting since this morning na I feel like I’m gonna have a fever, hence the reason I skipped work today.
.. Or baka fertile lang ako kaya ang init ng pakiramdam ko. Chos hahaha. Anyway, it’s been quite a while since I’ve written something raw and personal so I’m just here to talk about Spotify. Yes, I’m really writing a post for an app because nanggigil ako sa Spotify na ‘yan talaga.
You know how Spotify releases your yearly wrap up for your top artists, songs, playlists, et cetera? How was your 2019 Wrapped? Mine has been.. kinda messy. It’s mixed with songs I wasn’t listening to in the first place and my top song for 2019 isn’t even mine.
Since I’m such a nice person (sometimes), I’m sharing my log in credentials with some people ever since I started using Spotify Premium. And by some people, it included my ex-boyfriend. Since I only changed my password I think half a year after the breakup, my 2019 Wrapped reasonably has songs he’s been listening to even after we broke up. That’s why my top song for this year is his. Add the fact that it’s a sad song related to what happened to us.
I mean it’s not a big deal naman na because I am genuinely happy now but thank you Spotify for reminding me how I’ve broken someone else’s heart this year! I was listening to Ben & Ben too much this year, I hope you kind of picked it up too!
On another note, they also released your top everything for the decade and how they made separate playlists pa for your yearly favorites. Which is really nice, don’t get me wrong.
However, I was listening to my 2016 and 2017 Top Songs yesterday and it was.. too nostalgic for me. Aside from realizing how there are super good songs before that I should start listening to again, these playlists just brought back so many memories. And I just find it weird how a certain music can bring you back to a time from the past in just a snap; how even a certain kind of scent reminds you of the good old days.
I don’t even know if “weird” is the right feeling for it. Should I feel happy or sad? Should I find it funny or weird? I don’t know. All I know is Spotify Wrapped reminded me of memories I am always grateful for even if they are all in the past. Memories that taught me lessons about life and love that I will forever carry and years of experience that has made me become a version of myself that I am so, SO proud of.
Thanks, Spotify. Turns out I wasn’t pissed at you in the first place. Here’s to moving forward.
