Last.fm is great. It is a music website that allows you to scrobble your played tracks in various music players either with the music player itself or by a plugin. This enables you to check which songs you’ve previously listened to and see various charts after some time.
I have scrobbled in Last.fm for exactly 1800 days today (4 years, 11 months and 4 days, not including today). Even though I wasn’t able to scrobble the tracks I’ve listened to with my portable music player, I scrobbled over 84 thousand tracks that I listened to using my computers. And now, the time for some statistics has arrived. Or, you know, a list of 10 songs. For starters.
- Radiohead – No Surprises: A whopping 501 plays of this marvelous song, great lyrics and melody. I used to listen to this song for hours.
- Lily Allen – Littlest Things: Another song that I used to listen to repeatedly. Calming with nice lyrics that can bring up a variety of moods. 185 plays.
- Depeche Mode – Enjoy the Silence: I most sincerely believe that this song needs no explanation. 146 plays of awesomeness.
- Jimi Hendrix – Little Wing: This song has such a good intro that it blows me away anytime I hear it. Also its guitar solo. Also its lyrics. You get the idea. 135 plays.
- Air – Cherry Blossom Girl: A song that I’ve listened to so many times that I can’t listen to it as often anymore, so I didn’t link to the normal version. Still, a pretty addictive and magical song of its time. 122 plays.
- George Baker Selection – Little Green Bag: Great old song that is pretty much synonymous with the movie Reservoir Dogs of Tarantino, obviously. Highly repeatable and more addictive than most songs on this list. 120 plays.
- Coldplay – Don’t Panic: Another calming song filled with happiness indeed. And inscribed in large friendly letters. 112 plays.
- Yelle – Je Veux Te Voir: Great French song that I still listen quite often now. Pretty good for running or exercising. Also 112 plays.
- Queen – Don’t Stop Me Now: Awesome uplifting song from Freddie, not to mention addictive. Probably listened to it a lot more after hearing it in a Shaun of the Dead scene which was immensely funny. 105 plays.
- The Proclaimers – (I’m Gonna Be) 500 Miles: Great song that I discovered in the TV series How I Met Your Mother, where it is proved to be the greatest driving song ever in more than one episode. 103 plays. probably 5 at a time, and then 3. It’s that addictive.
