It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Sure, it’s the holiday season, but more importantly, it’s the time of year when Spotify Wrapped lands in my inbox. I get to revisit the songs, artists, and genres that got me through another trip around the sun, and it’s good to see whether I’m getting my money’s worth from my Spotify Premium subscription.

It’s the time of year when my sentimental nature gets to go, “I listened to Bleachers for how many hours?” The answer is 28.5 hours — if you’re curious. The arrival of Spotify Wrapped also makes my inner data nerd wonder why more services don’t follow Spotify’s lead. After all, Spotify Wrapped is guaranteed to trend on Twitter for a few days, and what brand doesn’t love a little engagement? With that in mind, here are a few of our favorite year-end roundups and a few more that we sure wish would add them.
