this one was random, i didnt notice it til about 70 plays later (i used recent played to count back to the right number) but since i was playing my all over super playlist, the one with all the 900 best songs i have, it couldve been anyone and id be happy about it. SO:
3 Doors Down - She Don't Want The World
well :) its from their new album, maybe not the beeestest one, but definitely a really good one!
ANYWAY, theres some big news! haha! Sister Hazel has moved up to take the first place in overall artists! after 3 years of The Used, Sister Hazel will reign for this time being. both being very close to 7000 plays these days, its a good way back to the other challengers. But if we look back over the last year we can see how this opportunity has presented itself for the Hazel guys. Looking at, for example, the last 12 months played we can see that the charts are dominated by Sister Hazel, while The Used are looking up quite a long way. Another reason to why this might have happened is that the Hazel boys have been quite busy making music, having at least the double amount of tracks compared to The Used. This means less of the same track when you feel like "oooh i wanna listen to Hazel", which means you can listen longer.
I usually ramble on about numbers in these things, so i might as well get on with it already!
As i said in the 99999 post this number is just a tiny bit off the regular interval, since its not 11111 plays since the previous, but 11112! but its also prolly the last one of this kind i will do, i mean its gonna take another 3 years and a half to get to 222222 which would be the next count. i have already started thinking about other counts that might happen in the future, but i wont give too much away... well, i might as well do some sort of calculation, so what kind do i choose this time..
lets get some lastfm stats in here, from the group Stats!
Okay, i found something thats somewhat interesting (well to me, i bet its dead boring to you), its something that calculates how much time youve spent listening to one single artist, estimated by that artists average track length. What you can see from this is that even though the difference in amount of plays between Hazel and Used is only about 20, it differs a whopping 4000 minutes in playtime! by doing some extremely simple calculations of my own i can say that Sister Hazel songs are about 30 seconds longer in average. You can clearly see what artists have long/short songs by this chart (it shows the original rank and the new one based on time) Joshua Radin for example have unusually short songs while The Decemberists have climbed up 3 ranks in comparison to the playcount.
Maybe therell be a next count, maybe not...
