Most Popular Beatles Songs

This data visualization shows the popularity of Beatles songs using the Spotify API. I then assigned each song to a songwriter using Wikipedia data from an old Beatles project.

This is a new type of visualization I am calling a Marimekko Slope Plot. It combines several chart types and communicates a lot of information. The bar width shows the sample size (number of songs) by a discrete category (songwriter). The dots show a distribution of points (songs) with ability to compare across discrete categories (songwriter). Finally it show trends over time through the area chart slope (song popularity trend). I will post later about other applications of this chart and how it was created in Tableau.
