I use the Last.fm plug-in on my Winamp that helps me know the songs I listen to. There is really no point to it, I guess, except, I like to to broadcast live on my blog and share this information with others.
What is Last FM and their plug-in, scrobbler? This is what they say on their website:
A scrobble is a little note The Scrobbler sends to Last.fm to let us know what song youâ€™re playing.
Scrobbling helps us tell you what songs you play most often, which songs you like the most, how much youâ€™ve played an artist over a certain amount of time, which of your friends have similar tastesâ€¦ all kinds of stuff. By focusing on the music you already play we can help you discover more music.
So I guess I really don’t pay attention too much to the LISTS that it makes in regards to my listening habits, but just out of curiosity, I looked the other day.
So this is what I have recently listened to:

|Sam & Dave â€“ This Is Your World||1 hour ago|

Then it tells me the top Artists I have listened to since October 2005! The Beatles #1, really???Â Must be John’s influence there. I had no idea I’ve listened to that much Pavarotti!
Also listed there is a newcomer to my collection, the Mulfinger Family, good stuff.
But then the surprise really came when I saw the most listened to tracks. “I Won’t See You Tonight”Â from Avenged Sevenfold, that’s actually from Miquel’s collection that I have grown to like and borrowed.
It’s a surprise what you can learn about yourself. 🙂
