How exactly does Obscurify Music work?
Obscurify music is a free service that measures how "unique" a Spotify account music taste. So, how does it do that?
After connecting your Spotify account, Obscurify Music will analyze your musical taste and examine your most listened to songs and artists. Then, you will be given a percentage of how your obscure your music taste is, when compared to the average Spotify user. (As seen on right)
Essentially, if you consume a lot of music from musicians who are not well known, you will score in a higher percentile for a more obscure taste.
However, there is a lot more data that Obscurify reveals about your Spotify account.
Your Top Genres
Obscurify provides far more information than a mere percentage that shows how your taste in music compares to others. For example, the next bit of data Obscurify provides is your top 10 genres.
Furthermore, if you click one of the visible genres, the data will reflect your top three artists of each genre. Pretty neat. You'll see more info on your top artists soon.
Your Most Obscure
Next up, you can see which artists and songs are most responsible for helping your Spotify Obscurity Rating. Similar to Spotify Wrapped, you will see your top 5 of each area.
Current Top Artists & Top Songs
Next, you able to really dive into your music preferences with a view of both your current and all time top tracks and artists. This is my favorite section.
Here, you can view up to 50 of your most listened to songs and artists, which is far better than the annual Spotify Wrapped provided data.
Best of all, in the click of a button, you can easily create Spotify playlists for either your current or all-time most listened to songs.
Spotify measures variables such as happiness, energy, and danceability of the songs you listen to. Obscurify users can view the averages of this data, although to be honest, I'm not sure this section is entirely accurate...
By The Decades
Next up is another personal favorite section of the Obscurify-generated Spotify data.
Here, you can see a pie chart detailing how often you listen to music from each time period. Personally, I was surprised to see how close of a split between 2020 and 2010 music I had.
Additionally, you can view what some of your top songs from each decade is
