Broadcat's top jams of 2019
The other day, everyone at the office was looking at our most-played songs for 2019, and ... something something compliance analogy.
Just kidding. Not everything is a compliance analogy, you guys!
But this post seriously is about our most-listened to songs of 2019. Because yes, we're a brand. But we're also, like, people, and January is a loooooong month.
So here's a bonus post for January: our top plays for 2019!
Ricardo's most-listened song of 2019: Diggy Diggy Hole, by Wind Rose
Second runner-up: Rockefeller Street, New Nitecore mix, Getter Jaani
Ed. note: For someone who wears a lot of death metal t-shirts, Ricardo's 2019 anthems turned out to be, uh ... not that. His #1 song is an Italian folk metal band covering a song about dwarves that was originally written by guys who run a podcast about the game Minecraft. He may not listen to that podcast or play that game, but man does he like songs about dwarves and dragons and stuff.
Courtney, Director of Operations
Courtney's most-listened song of 2019: Fat Bottomed Girls, Queen
Runner-up: Another One Bites the Dust, Queen (again)
Second runner-up: You're My Best Friend, (you guessed it) Queen
Ed. note: In full disclosure, Courtney listens to Pandora, which is old-school technology akin to something the old folks call "C.D.s"—it doesn't keep track of most-listened songs, so these are her best guesses. She likes Queen, I guess. TBH, we all do. A LOT.
Aimee, Director of External Engagements
Aimee's most-listened song of 2019: Kill V. Maim, Grimes (the video below is creepy, but mostly SFW)
Runner-up: Friend Zone, Thundercat
Second runner-up: EARFQUAKE, Tyler, The Creator
Ed. note: We honestly don't know what this says about Aimee. But we're a little concerned.
Jaycee, Implementation Lead
Jaycee's most-listened song of 2019: You Don't Own Me, Grace ft. G-Eazy
Runner-up: Glitter & Gold, Barns Courtney
Second runner-up: 454, I Am the Liquor
Ed. note: Like Courtney, Jaycee listens to Pandora and mp3s; this is her best guess for her top tracks in 2019. Either these or What Does the Fox Say.
Ryan, Brand Manager
Ryan's most-listened song of 2019: fake smile, Ariana Grande
Runner-up: NASA, Ariana Grande
Second runner-up: bad idea, Ariana Grande
Ed. note: Ryan has a rich and varied musical palate. It's also quality (we're all Arianators). And this focus on quality is why he's in charge of our brand.
Rachel, Senior Designer
Rachel's most-listened song of 2019: Self, Noname
Runner-up: Melting, Kali Uchis
Second runner-up: Ridin Round, Kali Uchis
Ed. note: As you can see, Rachel's hella classy and has excellent taste in music.
Xinia, Senior Designer
Xinia's most-listened song of 2019: Baby Shark
Ed. note: Xinia's on maternity leave, so we picked a song for her. Baby Shark, obvs.
Kristen, Custom Jr. Graphic Designer
Kristen's most-listened song of 2019: Marian (Version), Sisters of Mercy
Runner-up: Hard Times, Paramore
Second runner-up: Seven Nation Army- SKALD Vikings Chant (Alfar Fagrahvel Edition)
Ed. note: Kristen's #2 song for 2019 was also Rockefeller Street, New Nitecore mix, Getter Jaani. Solid hire, Ricardo!
