This is a collaboration article with Nadine. She came up with this Brilliant tag, a way to test the spotify algorithm.

This is how the tag works: We chose 20 words and searched for them in Spotify. We wrote down the first song that Spotify suggested. As the algorithm is based on personal preferences, the results are pretty different. But have a look yourself!
If you want to try this out as well, feel free to write your own article and mention us. We would love to see what Spotify proposes to you!

Let's start with the real tag!

Feel free to rephrase it! :) If necessary :D

Word Number 1: back
