Methodology

To determine what features make a good song for commuting, we used the audio features component of the Spotify API service. In total, we collected information about 1,144,504 tracks (312,341 unique) across 11,657 playlists, with a total of 30,992,952 followers. We searched for all playlists with the words “driving” and “commuting” in the title and pulled information about all the tracks on these playlists into a database. We then identified the tracks which appeared most across all of the playlists and calculated the average scores for some of their primary audio features, namely:

  • Danceability - refers to how suitable a song is for dancing (based on tempo, beat strength, regularity). 0.0 is not danceable and 1.0 is very danceable.
  • Energy - refers to how fast, loud, and noisy a song is. A score of 0.0 is very low energy and 1.0 is high energy.
  • Tempo - refers to the number of beats per minute. The higher the BPM, the faster the pace of the song.
