Now 2021 is over, I can do some stats. Or, rather, I can lift some stats from Spotify Wrapped and do some limited stats of my own.
I make a new playlist for each month of the year, each comprised of the new music I'm listening to in a given month. I started this in January 2021 after getting fed up of being scared to add songs to my favourites playlist for fear of not liking them enough. I'm glad to say that this worked out nicely.
During 2021, I listened to a grand total of 83,112 minutes of music, which equates to ~58 full days, or ~16% of a calendar year. Which is a scarily large amount. It ends up as about 3 hours and 48 minutes of music a day.
All-in-all, I listened to 1,760 unique artists in 2021. 16.9% of those artists made it into my monthly playlists in some capacity. My top artist of 2021 was MisterWives, who first showed up on my playlists in May with rock bottom. As it turns out, rock bottom was also my most played song of 2021, with a respectable 69 plays (nice). Machine, another of their songs, was also my second most played song.

Music formed an integral part of my 2021. It's pretty great.
