Last.fm 2015 Listening Trends

Lots of artists made their spot because I attended a concert or discovered them this year and got very enthusiastic about listening to this new artist. There are also lots of Spotify scrobbles, but not as many as there would be if work’s firewall didn’t keep scrobbles from being counted.

Artists

  1. Anberlin (427 listens)
  2. Fall Out boy (239 listens)
  3. Jim Guthrie (221 listens)
  4. I Fight Dragons (214 listens)
  5. Paul and Storm (190 listens) – A nerdy folksy group that I really like. Their irreverence is my kind of fun.
  6. The Beatles (136 listens)
  7. Anamanaguchi (130 listens)
  8. Lionize (130 listens)
  9. Five Iron Frenzy (128 listens)

Songs

Interestingly, only two new songs made the list this year – Talking Body and Know Yourself. Because I don’t listen to the radio, I discovered these via Spotify. The rest are all older songs that I happened to listen to a lot. And Chandelier came from Danielle getting the album and asking me to play it in the car.

Top Overall Artists

A bit of jostling for position, but no radically new contenders. It’s a steep hill to climb to make it in here and I listen to a lot of music on random. It’ll continue to be a long time before bands I don’t listen to anymore like CYHSY, DC Talk, and Andrea Echeverri to fall out completely.

  1. Fantastic Plastic Machine (3587 listens) – No change in rank
  2. Anberlin (2756 listens) – Up from #3
  3. Five Iron Frenzy (2626 listens) – Dropped from #2

Top Overall Songs

I’m a bit surprised that nothing broke into this chart. However, a lot of Aberlin music is just 5 or so listens away from pushing out the tracks I rarely listen to anymore. This could be a more exciting and dynamic chart over the next two years.

  1. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – Upon This Tidal Wave of Young Blood (116 listens) – No change in rank
  2. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – Over and Over Again (115 listens) – No change in rank
  3. Jonathan Coulton – The Princess Who Saved Herself (109 listens) – Dropped from #2
  4. Fantastic Plastic Machine – Take Me To The Disco [Malibu Mix] (104 listens) – Dropped from #2
  5. Fantastic Plastic Machine – Steppin’ Out (102 listens) – Dropped from #4
  6. Gnarls Barkley – Who Cares (99 listens) – Dropped from #5
  7. Gnarls Barkley – Just A Thought (93 listens) – Dropped from #6
  8. Gnarls Barkley – The Last Time (87 listens) – Dropped from #7
  9. Andrea Echeverri – Quedate (85 listens) – Dropped from #7 tie
  10. Anberlin – Audrey, Start The Revolution! (85 listens) – Up from #14
