It’s that time of year again: Spotify has blessed us with its yearly recap of our most-listened-to artists, songs and podcasts. It’s a day the Twitterverse loves to celebrate — what better way to show off your good, cultured taste in music?
If you’re a parent, blessed isn’t quite the word you’re looking for — it’s more like trolled. Yes, Daniel Tiger will make an appearance. “Baby Shark” too, undoubtably. Is white noise on there? What a lovely way to remember the hours you spent trying to get your newborn to sleep. Thanks a lot, Spotify!
Below, the funny moms and dads of Twitter sum up the perils of Spotify Wrapped when you’re a parent.
My Spotify Wrapped is trying to tell me my number 1 streamed song is Baby Shark. Yes I’m absolutely livid and yes I’m deducting the cost of my Spotify membership from my son’s Christmas present.— GUVNA B (@GuvnaB) December 1, 2021
I don't need Spotify Wrapped to tell me my top songs are all bangers from Daniel Tiger.— Alberto Nava (@StayKraken) December 1, 2021
Spotify Wrapped when you have a young child...— Graham Ruthven (@grahamruthven) December 1, 2021
Spotify Wrapped Day, otherwise known as the day that parents of small children do not engage on the app— Marissa R. Moss (@MarissaRMoss) December 1, 2021
My Spotify Wrapped is almost exclusively the soundtrack from the Trolls Movie because how else would I ever get two kids to go anywhere in the car.— Jamesie (@jamesie_2015) December 1, 2021
It's also much better than most of yours, so I win, yet again.
rip to all parents whose kids fucked their spotify wrapped— julia 🌿 (@thejuleshershey) December 1, 2021
Canceled my Spotify just in time to avoid this whole wrapped situation. Don’t need their snarky AI telling me how many times I listened to the Frozen soundtrack this year cause guess what mfer I know how many times I listened to the frozen soundtrack this year let it go— Travis Alexander (@travisalxndr) December 1, 2021
My spotify wrapped is nothing but songs for my kids. Shocked to see Baby Shark was not #1.— Brendan Darr (@BrendanDarr) December 1, 2021
Biggest upset of the year.
Spotify Wrapped is a lot less cool when you have a child and your top 5 songs are all from the Frozen 2 soundtrack. Moana was making a hard push to get onto the list but I think Elsa and Anna built up too much of a lead early in the year.— Dex Dunford (@DexDunford) December 1, 2021
My Spotify wrapped used to be a quirky insight into my listening habits...living with kids means it's now like 'YOU ❤️ nursery rhymes and pump it up, you absolutely ADORE baby shark don't you' 😭— JP (@jendotlils) December 1, 2021
My Spotify Wrapped: The Jungle Book, Frozen, and Moana soundtracks, and one Nine Inch Nails song. Bangers every one.— Kevin Power (@KevPow3) December 1, 2021
It’s that time of year where my Spotify Wrapped shows me that—against my own wishes—the songs I listened to the most were from Frozen…— Cassie 🤍 (@kittycassss) December 1, 2021
