Five years on Last.fm

So, today is my fifth anniversary of using Last.fm, the radio and music scrobbling website.

Although I very seldom listen to the radio part of Last.fm I am someone who scrobbles the music that they are listening to. Primarily from my mobile phone but also from my work and home computers sometimes too.

I signed up on March 31st 2006 and have to date  scrobbled 9788 tracks. It’s a shame I’ve not broken the 10,000 barrier as that would have been fitting, but oh well.

It’s interesting to see what you listen to, for instance, my top 10 most listened to artists over the last five years are;

  1. James
  2. Pink Floyd
  3. Florence + The Machine
  4. Martha Wainwright
  5. The Killers
  6. The Rolling Stones
  7. Garbage
  8. Led Zeppelin
  9. Snow Patrol
  10. David Bowie

Full list available here.

Also, I pull in the list of most recently listened to tracks into the very blog, over on the right hand side under “lpb’s recent tunes”, so if you’re really interested, you can keep an eye on what I’ve been listening to. It’s kinda pointless, but then again, most of this blog is!!
