Nice to know that people still do this. Back in the day I’d go for a full clearout of my MP3 Player every few months and do similar. Used to have a ‘next reset’ folder which I’d cycle music through, all either lovingly ripped or obtained from invite-only Torrent trackers (first OiNK, then What.cd/Waffles.fm - all long dead now). Those sites were great as they had a real ‘by fans for fans’ vibe about them, you could learn loads just by reading the comments.
Not sure where I’d find the time these days… suppose I’ve been using Spotify for much longer than I did the above.
Apart from when I got caught up in all The Greatest Showman craze and bought the album on iTunes to do my bit to help it break U.K. chart records, the last thing I added to my library was Kill em with kindness by Selena Gomez which came out in October 2015.
Since then I’ve pretty much been living in the streaming service. I search or ask Siri for what I want, but I primarily never leave the listen now/for you page. That has everything I’ve ever liked and ever might like. It tracks the artists it knows I like. Notifies me about new music releases and puts it right there.
Until just now to check what the last thing I added to my library was, I couldn’t possibly tell you when the last time I tapped on that tab was. But it’s been years.
