DJP's Spotify Time Capsule

I was going to poll the individual songs on this but there are 55 of them in the list and I couldn't pick any to cull. It's an EXTREMELY accurate reflection of my listening habits between the ages of 13 and 26, down to specific song choice ("Real Real Real" as the Jesus Jones song is some "wtf get out of my head" algorithm voodoo). Kind of surprised there's nothing by The Prodigy in there, though:

There are many songs I haven't listened to, so 'what the hell is this shit', I guess?

Outside of the hip-hop, R&B, Janes Addiction and Groove is in the Heart, there is literally nothing on that list remotely in my wheelhouse, and only a few other songs I have even heard. I remember the Jesus Jones song and it's fine, and Can't Fight This Feeling is good I guess.

Mine would have a lot more Orb, Meat Beat Manifesto and 90s IDM in general, to replace some of your whiny british baritones and industrial stuff.

How does this thing work exactly? Does one have to have been using Spotify for some time I mean clearly it didnt exist in the 90s so whats it working this out from? I dont listen to anything like what I did in my 20s.

Tombot, no love for Sonz of a Loop Da Loop Era?

Also, no "Headhunter"???

my time capsule is weird as fuck with no discernible theme or connection to any particular era & the songs range in release date from 1980 to 2012

For whatever reason, Front 242 and Sonz weren't on the cheesy dance compilations that I could find in the racks in Alabama while I was discovering myself at 16. FSOL was though, what's up with that?

I forgot to vote, so "my god, that rules" got robbed

More than half of my Time Capsule are songs that I've got on a playlist from the 1989-1991 era. By the time the fifth or sixth song from that rolled around, I thought, Well hell, I could just play that playlist if I wanted to.

Here's what DJP and I have in common:

Groove Is In The Heart - Deee-Lite
It Takes Two - Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock
Poison - Bell Biv DeVoe
Three Days - Jane's Addiction

I've got three Public Enemy songs to his two:
Countdown To Armageddon
Shut 'Em Down
Welcome To The Terrordome

Oldest song on mine is "You Dropped a Bomb On Me" by the Gap Band.

I'm not sure how the algorithm works but I think it infers from your birthdate and current listening habits, along with songs from that era that you currently play.
