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):
Johann Sebastian BachBrandenburg Concerto No. 5 in D major, BWV 1050: Andante

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.

My Last.fm profile page is here.

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.
