The Spotify Top Spot-Check

A few weeks ago, a friend and I were sat at his house before heading out to the pub to watch the football. After a few beers and listening to some music our attention turned to Spotify, and more importantly the Top Hits section. For those of you who don’t have Spotify; a) you have lost the game and b) it’s the top 5 most played tracks by a particular artist.

As you can see, this is the top 5 most popular tracks by The Prodigy on Spotify. No real suprises there although I would have thought something from the new album would have made an appearance. But anyway, on to the game!

Basically choose an artist on Spotify, any artist at all but one that you know of. Before you click their name try and name all the tracks you think will be in their top 5 most played. Whoever gets most of them correct is the winner! Easy, eh?

Once you have established how many you’ve got, you have to choose your next musician from the Similar Artists section. And keep repeating this until you run out of music.

It’s a lot harder than it looks too, your brain often goes blank and can’t think of a song title or just forget the song all together. When my friend and I were thinking of the top 5 for The Jam we both forgot A Town Called Malice which is their #1 most popular.

Go ahead and try it, something to pass the time before the pub and a real way to test your music knowledge!
