111 111 songs scrobbled!

The 5th of December in 2004 I joined Audioscrobbler.com. It was (and still is, kind of) a service which let you log, or scrobble, all songs you listened to through your music player. In the beginning I was still stuck in Windows and I was using Foobar 2000 to listen to MP3 files which may or may not have been ripped legally from my own CD collection. I’ve always loved statistics and when I started to see weekly and monthly top lists of my most played songs I knew I had found a service I would stick with for as long as I could.

At the time I don’t think I even knew of Last.fm but when they finally merged the sites in 2005 I started using their Internet radio streaming type of service, which obviously also scrobbled everything, and my affection for the service grew deeper. I loved that you could like and unlike songs and that Last.fm from it could generate radio stations just for me. Radio stations that played songs that I liked. By connecting me to friends and people who liked similar music I discovered a lot of new music and bands that I still hold close to my heart. Last.fm also was the first online service I payed for and it may or may not have made me rip less of my legally bought CDs.

Unfortunately, due to different reasons, Last.fm had to change the rules and requirements for online streaming. And after receiving a beta invite to Spotify in 2008, just a month before it opened its doors to paying subscribers, I started to loose interest in the Last.fm streaming service. But I kept on scrobbeling.

Today, just 3 130 days later, I’ve reached 111 111 scrobbled songs! And this is cause for a celebration … Yay!

  • 111 111 songs in 3 130 days or 35.5 songs per day
  • If each song is about 3.5 min long, I’ve listened to 270 days, 1 hour, 28 min and 30 sec of music
  • Or 8.6% of the time
  • My most played artist is Grandaddy [Spotify] with 2 470 plays
  • My most played song is Jed’s Other Poem (Beautiful Ground) [Spotify] by the same band with 191 plays

Soundtrack of my 2010

Här kommer en sammanställning av soundtracket till mitt 2010. Detta är möjligt genom mitt fascistiska scrobblande via Last.fm.

Topp 10 – Spelade artister

  1. Foo Fighters (670)
  2. Robyn (447)
  3. Daft Punk (375)
  4. Gorillaz (292)
  5. The Chemical Brothers (275)
  6. Daniel Adams-Ray (208)
  7. Metallica (186)
  8. Grandaddy 177
  9. The Strokes (169)
  10. Teddybears (163)

Topp 10 – Spelade låtar

  1. Alabama 3 – Hello…I’m Johnny Cash (66)
  2. Robyn – Indestructible (Original Mix) (62)
  3. Robyn – Call Your Girlfriend (54)
  4. Brett Dennen – There Is So Much More (52)
  5. The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition (50)
  6. Oskar Linnros – Genom eld (46)
  7. Black Lips – Bad Kids (45)
  8. Daniel Adams-Ray – Dum av dig (44)
  9. Daft Punk – Solar Sailer (43)
  10. Jimmy Eat WorldHear You Me / Daft Punk – The Grid (42)

Får kanske tillägga att spellistan jag spelar mest i Spotify har Alabama 3-låten som låt nummer 1. Så när jag har lagt till nya låtar i slutet och lyssnar mest på dem så börjar ju spellistan om från början och denna låt får lite fler spelningar än vad jag egentligen aktivt ger den!

Totalt under året har jag spelat ca 8500 låtar, alltså lite drygt 20 st låtar per dag i snitt. Nästan en låt per timme. Minst. Och då är nog ändå inte 100% av min musik scrobblad, samt självklart ingen scrobbling på musiken jag lyssnar på via radio.

Bäst of

Störst kärlek under 2010 tror jag Robyn har fått. Hennes Body Talk-serie är snuskigt bra. Men även Daniel Adams-Ray har fått mycket kärlek. Daft Punks Tron-soundtrack är bästa soundtracket. Digister-playlisten, på Spotify, för SVTplays sjukt grymma Rebecca|Fiona-tvserie har gett mig otroligt många bra tips. Det är även grymt hårt att min vän Smäm numera finns på Spotify. Nästan lika hårt som att finnas på IMDb. Även min egna Covers-o-Matic (TM)-playlist har fått endel kärlek. Men den behöver mer kärlek under 2011.

Det har även vart ett tungt år för Svensk hip hop. PST/Q la en sjukt fet vers på en Rico Won-låt. Organismen släppte först en tung gratis-EP med Öris och sedan en minst lika bra EP med DJ Large. Det finns mer. Men jag behöver inte försöka låta mer kunnig än vad jag är.

Summan …

… av kardemumman är att 2010 var ett bra musikår i min värld. Jag hoppas att 2011 blir minst lika bra.

Wouldn’t it be nice!

Lite vårstämning på kontoret tillsammans med The Beach Boys (Spotify).

Wouldn’t it be nice if we were older
Then we wouldn’t have to wait so long
And wouldn’t it be nice to live together
In the kind of world where we belong

You know its gonna make it that much better
When we can say goodnight and stay together

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could wake up
In the morning when the day is new
And after having spent the day together
Hold each other close the whole night through

Happy times together we’ve been spending
I wish that every kiss was never-ending
Wouldn’t it be nice

Maybe if we think and wish and hope and pray it might come true
Baby then there wouldn’t be a single thing we couldnt do
We could be married
And then wed be happy

Wouldn’t it be nice

You know it seems the more we talk about it
It only makes it worse to live without it
But lets talk about it
Wouldn’t it be nice

R.I.P Last.fm – I will miss you!

We will forever remember this day, the 24th of March, as the day that music Last.fm died. This almost brings tears to my eyes. Makes more reasons to join Spotify though. But Last.fm was my first real love. And I will miss it … This fucking sucks.

In all other countries, listening to Last.fm Radio will soon require a subscription of €3.00 per month. There will be a 30 track free trial, and we hope this will convince people to subscribe and keep listening to the radio. Everything else on Last.fm (scrobbling, recommendations, charts, biographies, events, videos etc.) will remain free in all countries, like it is now.

And I miss you still …

Good song is good song.

I should know who I am by now
I walk the record stand somehow
Thinkin’ of winter
The name is the splinter inside me
While I wait

And I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you

But I don’t have to make this mistake
And I don’t have to stay this way
If only I would wake

The walk has all been cleared by now
Your voice is all I hear somehow
Calling out winter
Your voice is the splinter inside me
While I wait

And I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you
But I don’t have to make this mistake
And I don’t have to stay this way
If only I would wake

I could have lost myself
In rough blue waters in your eyes
And I miss you still

Oh I remember the sound
Of your November downtown
And I remember the truth
A warm December with you
But I don’t have to make this mistake
And I don’t have to stay this way
If only I would wake

Because I like you

I’ve got too many questions in my mind
I’ve got too many answers to find
Can I give up all I’ve imagined?
Am I imagical enough for this to happen?

Because I like you, I like you, I like you, I like you
And like can lead to like like and like like can lead to love
As sure as the stars above I’d really like to kiss you/fuck you

Can I be the man you’re looking for?
Can I really throw you outta my door?
I’ll try real hard not to lose her
And I’ll try to be less of a loser

Because I like you, I like you, I like you, I like you
And like can lead to like like and like like can lead to love
As sure as the stars above I’d really like to kiss you/fuck you/kiss you/fuck you… fuck you

Oasis

Har vart dåligt med bloggande senaste tiden. Mest massa Twittrande.

Jag, E och Pei Pei (trevligt besök från Norrköping) var i alla fall på Oasis ikväll. Ruskigt bra. Får lägga upp lite bilder imorgon tror jag. Men nu måste jag nog sova så jag orkar gå upp och träna imorn… Skönt att slippa åka fyra timmar buss hem. Stackars Pei Pei.

Anna Ternheim!

Bara tvungen att skriva ett inlägg till. Tyckte inte detta passade ihop med The Lookout… Ikväll blir det Anna Ternheim! I love her <3 She is the greatest. I alla fall very very great. Hon spelar på Kulturkalaset här i Göteborg. Ska gå med Gazz. Trevlich. Återkommer eventuellt med rapport om exakt hur bra det var. Och om jag såg något. Lär bli endel folk. Undrar om jag borde ta med min lilla kamera…

Klockan 01:15:
Anna är som alltid helt otroligt underbar! Love her!
