Hurrah! My last.fm plays have just passed 10,000!
Although this sounds like a monumental number, I assure you that it is not! Alas last.fm is only picking up stats from 9 Feb 2008, and I often listen to music on devices that do not have connection with last.fm, especially on my mobile and at work.
Recently, I was given an iPod and acquired Spotify, so my stats that were coming from my home PC have taken a much needed boost so that I am now in five-figure play numbers like everyone else that I know heh!
For anyone unsure of what last.fm actually is, it is a profile based social networking service which aims to keep a log of all the music that you listen to (on compatible devices/their website) and produces lots and lots of glorious stats and recommendations based on what you’ve been listening to. It’s partly like iTunes Genius, but last.fm got there with Audioscrobbler about 7 years earlier! 😉
10,000th song was ‘Leave Right Now’, by Will Young – a very fine song indeed!
