I tend to listen to music obsessively—latching onto a favourite song and listening to it until I can sing it backwards in my sleep. For seven weeks I tracked my music listening, noting which songs were most popular. I then cross referenced my playcounts with several other pieces of information; the temperature and my mood at the time of listening, how I discovered the piece of music, how happy or sad the song was, and the average amount of playcounts for the song on last.fm. The resulting piece allows viewers to quickly see which songs I favoured and how they related to my mood and the weather at the time.
