Why would spotify do this?

I really don't understand, it was acurate previous years. Why not now?

I too have this problem.

Is there anything we can do?

I really like the idea of the most played playlist. Last year was amazing.

Can we find this some other way?

Same issue here. Super bummed that my Top Songs playlist includes none of my most played artists/songs, including my favorite band that I listened to 50 hours this year! That's according to their "Wrapped" feature, which seems pretty accurate. 

 

Agreed with others, loved this playlist in the past, so disappointed in this years algorithm.

Same issue here. My "Your Top Songs of 2018" infact contains some songs which I have been skiping as soon as they would start playing when I would lisen to the original playlist they are part of. Some of the songs which I listended on heavy rotation and have in a separate playlist haven't made it to the "Your Top Songs of 2018"  eventhough this heavy rotation playlist was created by me somewhere in the different of this year and it does satisfy their criteria of having different genres and artists. In fact barely half of the songs on my most listened to custm made playlist made it to "Your Top Songs of 2018" . I really wish they had enabled the option to edit the list

I listen to rain and white noise on private mode while I sleep. Apparently, private mode didn't keep Spotify from triumphantly announcing that my most listened to tracks and artists were all rain. :/ Woo?

My Top 100 Songs and Tastebreakers are pretty nifty so far. Just a bit bummed that after I have 204,500 minutes (40% of the entire year!), I was looking forward to some new insight about my musical and genre tastes and I got a big fat raincloud instead.

Yup. Compared to my last.fm stats there are some major differences, the only thing that is correct is my number one played artist. I wonder why... all hail Spotify's allmighty omnipotent algorithms, they are just fantastic!

Same problem here. There’s even a song on my playlist that I listened like 15 seconds of it ONCE. It’s disappointing to spot a song that I absolut hate on my “2018 Wrapped”...

Experiencing same issue. Says Thin Lizzy is one of my top artists... Now dont get me wrong not bashing Thin Lizzy in any way at all but I think I have listened to them twice in my life... Never on Spotify so find it bizarre where they get their workings from. Rest I do agree with though... but would love to know how they have made it in my top artists considering I dont even listen to them.
