30,000th Track Scrobbled

Friday December 18, 2009

Last.fm scrobbled my 30,000th track this week!  i.e. Last.fm has logged me listening to over 30,000 tracks since I started it counting on 25th April 2007 – an average of 31 tracks per day.

The specific track?  Here it is:

30000: (2009-12-15 09:48:50):

My Listening – Music Milestones

Sunday September 13, 2009

I have been using Last.fm to track my music habits since April 2007.  It, through iTunes, logs all the tracks that I listen to when out with my iPod or in the house.

Since April 2007, I’ve listened to 26,701 tracks (as of this point in time!).  That’s an average of 30 tracks per day.

Just found a cool application which checks your Last.fm data and extracts your milestones.  Here are my milestone tracks at 5,000 track intervals.

Music and Last.fm

Saturday May 2, 2009

So, a little over two years and Last.fm has logged me playing over 22,000 tracks, which equates to an average of 30 tracks per day.  That’s a lot of music.

I did have some hiccups with the scrobbling software I was using previously and it failed to ‘scrobble’ all my tracks on a couple of occasions so the figure might be slightly lower than reality.  Since then, and since it reliably scrobbled tracks from iPods, I have been using the genuine Last.fm software on my Mac.

Last.fm is a great site for understanding your musical tastes and for finding new music.  The site suggests new music to you based on your listening habits.

To discover new music, I use Last.fm, Amazon’s recommendations and iTunes.  I buy my music from iTunes, Amazon Download, or on CD from Amazon.

Dahon Riders At Last.fm

Sunday March 15, 2009

I’ve started a Dahon Riders group over at Last.fm to see if we can find out what sort of music we all listen to.  We ride ‘unusual’ bikes so I wonder if we have unusual musical tastes!

Join the group!!!  There’s only me there at the moment.

Last.fm is a great website/service which tracks (“scrobbles”)  all the music you listen to and creates a set of statistics based on your listening habits.  Using that information, it can recommend new music or artists which it considers to be a good match to your tastes.  It’s a great way of discovering new music.  It’s also interesting to watch how your listening habits change and who you listen to most.

I listen to my music with a Mac and an iPod.  Both of these ‘scrobble’ tracks via the small Last.fm application.
