Emotion Data

Casual Listener

Curious: is there emotion or “mood” data available for every sing being played system-wide right now? It would be fun to build a kind of worldwide real-time mood monitor based on all Spotify listeners, then track and display it over time or possibly in real time. There’s a geographic component too based on players’ GPS; community mood by continent, nation, city, etc.

Well there's audio features, which include "energy", "danceability", etc. which I think you could tie to mood with some kind of function. I don't know how you can get real-time playing data though.

It looks like https://spotifycharts.com/ might have that data.

 

Top played tracks per country per day.

If you wanted to be extra fancy, you could also try k-means clustering

Interesting project - seems like it would be possible to predict moods for listeners provided they confirm individually how certain music makes them feel - I might have assigned different moods to these same songs, but the predictive aspect should still function for “my” moods as it did for the author’s
