Update to “popular tunes”: recently popular
I got an email with a suggestion for a feature recently:
"I was thinking, it would be awesome if you had an algorithm and list for "recently popular" tunes - similar to whatever algo you use for the current "popular" list, but weighted towards recent events"
I think that’s a good idea. The most popular tunes of all time rarely change, so the Tunes page has been showing the same list forever. I’ve tweaked it now to show the top 10 tunes from the last week i.e. the 10 tunes that have been added to the most tunebooks in the last seven days:
https://thesession.org/tunes (halfway down the page)
Interestingly, the top 10 tunes for the week look fairly similar to the top 10 tunes of all time: the usual suspects like Drowsy Maggie and Cooley’s are right up there.
Hope you like it.
