Playlist: Most Listened Tracks of 2018

So following my fave albums of this year post yesterday, here’s a playlist the songs I played most! Well kind-of, maybe only the ones on my laptop! I did a blog post like this last year for the first time so this is the second year in a row I’ve done this. This year’s playlists are based on my profile but I think, I did say this last year as well that bloody thing doesn’t work really right but this year it was even worst! If you don’t know what is? It’s suppose to track/count all your online/offline music played everywhere say on my laptop or your phone etc. But at this point at the end of this year or sometime before it’s only counting my bandcamp and youtube plays and everything else has stopped working for hell knows what reason? So off course it can’t counts my home record player, the home CD player and my car’s CD player plus my old iPod classic player which got last plugged into the laptop around March earlier this year plus also my phone still has no music on it, what else? I don’t know, maybe that’s it?

Above is the the playlist on YouTube, I think I used Spotify to make it last year but a pile of the songs for my top 50 were missing but only one is missing this year. I have marked it with a little star like this * after the artist/band/act, song title, the release name and the [year] in brackets it was put out. I’ve just added one more track. So the full list of the 51 songs is below.

I’ve NOT edited it down to only this year’s releases so included older tracks but amazing it’s mainly it’s this and last year with a few others songs like a few acts I’ve seen live that were bloody great, Mark E. Smith die earlier this year so that The Fall track is my fave one from a few years back. Plus then a few Nick Cave songs that got hammered: one from his last album released from two years ago, another two which were also on the new best of comp from last year and then a couple that are just non-singles album tracks that I just must love. I made the playlist to count down from 50 to 1 but below is 1 to 51 list, enjoy!

  1. Your tastes are pretty different from mine. While I do like lots of different types and genres of music, I tend to go for more mainstream stuff, whereas I’m guessing you probably despise anything pop, tending to go for more unorthodox & unique sounds. Tropical Fuck Storm appear to be your favorite band of 2018 lol, and I do like their cover of “Stayin’ Alive”. Also, several artists and bands you like are Australian, so I’m not as familiar.

    That said, I’ve listened to all the songs on your playlist (whew!) and like many of them, especially Hollywood Failures, Bite the Leash, A Fan’s Mail, Sad Waters, Needles Disney, Hunted By a Freak, Abattoir Blues, Moving Out, More to Enjoy, When I Am Old, Two Afternoons, Get in the Boot, Candy May, Anthrocene & Kidney Auction Blues.
    My favorites are Weatherboard Man, Young Men Dead & Rubber Bullies.

    1. Wow-wee! Amazing you listen to the whole thing! Glad you liked some and picked out three faves, they’re great ones and very nice picks but off course I’m saying that because it’s all stuff I totally love!
      TFS timing was pretty perfect, the album was released early in the year and yeah it got hammered and fave album of 2018! They’re right now back in the recording studio so I’m looking forward to 2nd album next year!
      I guess, we do have pretty different tastes in music because when i was listening to your top 10/20 songs of your fave 100 songs of this year post, I didn’t say it at the time but thinking it was very pop and maybe a bit too much pop for me! But might try and throw in some of my fave pop stuff next year, how about that?
      Oh, next year is tomorrow!
      Cheers again 🙂
