As of tomorrow, I will have been on Last.fm for a full six years. So, instead of linking to videos, I’m just going to jot down a few numbers about these past years. Jolly good ones they were, too, at least musically.
Songs played: 65,209. That’s nearly 11,000 a year. If we take 4 minutes as the average song, it means I’ve definitely got my money’s worth out of my Winamp. (Yes, I know it’s free, but that’s beside the point.) It took me some time to get into serious scrobbling, but the last three years or so definitely made up for lost time.
Artists on library: 3,418. I may have flubbed a few places, but still, it’s a long list, and their increasingly fine-tuned suggestions keep making it longer.
Artist countries of origin (top 15 only): USA (6), UK (4), Canada (1), Germany (1), Finland (1), Italy (1), Netherlands (1)
Loved tracks: 1,420
Most played artists: Blind Guardian (2,514), Nightwish (2,081), Loreena McKennitt (1,838)
Most played tracks: One Direction – ‘Live While We’re Young’ (103), Lady Gaga – ‘Applause’ (66), Blind Guardian – ‘A Past And Future Secret’ (65)
Most played albums: Nightwish – Dark Passion Play (408), Epica – The Classical Conspiracy (309), Blind Guardian – Nightfall in Middle-Earth (301)
Here’s to many more years of it all!
