My "On Repeat" playlist is updating; however, there is one particular song that is not showing whatsoever on my "On Repeat" or my "Repeat Rewind" playlist. I have been listening to this song the most, so it is strange not to see it on those playlists when other songs I have not listened to in a while show up. Also, I read somewhere that Christmas songs do not show up on those playlists either. That happened to my playlists, too. Is that supposed to happen?
Thanks for reaching out about this in the Community!
On Repeat and Repeat Rewind are automatically populated with songs, based on your listening activity. There are no songs which would be excluded from those playlists. This includes Christmas songs and any other holiday-related music.
It's odd that the song you listen to the most does not get included, but it will most likely get featured in those playlists after some time.
What might be preventing music from getting into these playlists is Private Session. Make sure that is off when you listen to your favorite songs.
Hope this clears things up. Don't hesitate to reach out again if you have questions.
Thank you for the reply! I have done a clean reinstallment of Spotify on all my devices. I will update if that fixes the issue. Just for more information, I have been listening to the same song for a couple months now and it was not in private session. Also, thank you for clearing up the Holiday songs! I was always curious about that, so I hope this reinstallment fixes that also.
Hi there @user-removed,
Thank you for your reply.
We'll keep an eye out for your confirmation regarding on how everything works after the reinstall 🙂
My repeat playlists updated today, but I still do not see the song anywhere. Are there any other ideas that may solve this issue?
Hey there @user-removed,
Thanks for letting us know.
These playlists update automatically based on your listening activity. However, even though this may be odd, we're afraid there isn't a particular troubleshooting step that might be of help in this case.
In the meantime, we suggest to keep listening to the song so it may eventually be included in your On Repeat playlist.
As a workaround, you can start listening to your On Repeat playlist, and add this particular song to the Play queue.

Hi, this is actually MK373.
I had to make a new account and transferred my data over. I thought this would fix the issue, but nothing is fixed. It frustrates me because I lost data while doing the transfer, too.
Thanks for keeping us posted.
The algorithms involved in generating the playlists try and account for "natural listening" habits. We can't go into details to avoid manipulation of our algorithms, but it could be that your listening behavior doesn't appear to be natural to the system and hence, a track is excluded from On Repeat.
Overall, there are many systems in place to prevent manipulation of auto-generated playlists and we don't advise trying to do so.
Hi there, I have the same problem. The song I have listened to the most for multiple hours is a song that never has appeared on On Repeat. I’ve listened to it the most for a few weeks now and it has never showed up on On Repeat. Perhaps, it is because the song does not have an image just a symbol. It’s Fifty Percent from Ballroom. If there is any other reason behind this, I would appreciate knowing. Thank you.
