All San Francisco wants for Xmas is not Xmas music

The winter season holiday seasons may well be several weeks away, but the holiday break new music season is in comprehensive swing, sweeping department retailer loudspeakers and reworking Americans’ audio-listening behavior.

Nevertheless, San Franciscans — at least, San Francisco Spotify people — appear to be embracing this craze a bit much less enthusiastically than the U.S. as a whole.

Spotify releases weekly charts by its region’s listeners exhibiting the 100 most preferred music streaming that week. The Chronicle examined the company’s most modern charts, which encompass the 7 days of Nov. 26 to Dec. 2, for the 9 most populous American cities, plus San Francisco and the country overall. (We would have seemed at the 10 most populous, but the 10th, San Jose, is not available separately on the system.) We then counted the full selection of overtly Xmas- and wintertime vacation-themed songs that appeared on each and every region’s major 100 most common song record for that 7 days.

Total, the details shows that the country as a full loves holiday break music rather a little bit more than its largest towns do. The U.S. at this time has 31 holiday getaway-themed songs on its leading 100, this means virtually a 3rd of its largest hits right now are Christmasy. The average selection of vacation music throughout the towns we appeared at, in the meantime, was just 16.5.

So considerably, San Francisco’s Spotify consumers are liking Xmas songs even much less than most important metropolitan areas. The metropolis has just 14 Christmas tunes on its leading 100 ideal now. That is fewer tunes than 6 of the 9 key cities we looked at, and significantly reduced than the U.S. all round. Los Angeles is the musical Grinch of the team, with only nine Christmas-themed tracks in its leading 100.
