I became a last.fm (my account on last.fm) member in January 2007. Since then I've scrobbled (made my listening habits public via last.fm) about 55000 tunes. As last.fm is open, and has got a public API there are several nifty services built on top of last.fm. One great one is LastGraph (my page on LastGraph), which is what I've used for presenting the data below.
|My history for Daft Punk, my number one artist.|
Guess what, Bieber is not on my lists over my most played artists. The artist I've played the most over the years is Daft Punk, mainly thanks to the three albums TRON: Legacy , TRON Legacy: Reconfigured (the number one album played by me) and their new album Random Access Memories.
My second most played artist is Timbaland. Yeah, I did have a rap / hip-hop period some years ago. Not listening much to that guy anymore.
My third most played artist is not really an artist, but I had a period of listening to some French Mozart inspired rock opera, namely Mozart l'Opéra Rock.
|My history for Pink Floyd. Not many plays lately.|
Pink Floyd is on fourth, but that group would have been up heaps further if it was available on Spotify. As I've for the last years, almost without exception, only have been streaming music through that service.
For all my top artists check this page.
Another interesting feature from LastGraph is their timeline generator, where you get a nice graphical overview of the amount of music played, and what music that is played. Below are some shots of my timeline from the period as a last.fm user.
