We believe that a 'casual information visualization' approach can prove valuable for making this personal information available to their creators. In this paper we analyze the data domain of listening histories and present our findings on their structure and what possible user tasks and available patterns it might contain. Additional contextual information can trigger the memory of the user to reveal the reasons for listening decisions.
