2016: A Year in Lyrics

Lyrics have always been my favorite part about music. In 2016, I set out to understand what the lyrics of the music I listen to reveal about me as a music listener. 

I took the entire history of my music listening for the year and then aggregated the lyrics to those songs. The lyrical corpus was then analyzed a number of different ways to look at things like pronouns, syllables, reading level, greographical references, and common words. 

This project is a visual summary of that analysis.
