  • 60 000 tracks!

    Gen 3 2011, 12:24

    I thought that it took a long time to get to 50 000 from 40 000? Ha! It took me almost two years to play these last 10 000 tracks to get to 60 000.

    Like I wrote then, changes in my listening habits explains these numbers. Increased listening to my portable mp3-player and web radio without an last.fm scrobbler means more music that isn't registred here.

    The numbers are tracks played (position on the top 10 list at 10 000 ~ at 20 000 ~ at 30 000 ~ at 40 000 ~ at 50 000) + how many more times I've played it since 50 000.

    Overall Top Artists
    1. Kent 1272 (1 ~ 1 ~ 1 ~ 1 ~ 1) +91
    2. Depeche Mode 500 (5 ~ 2 ~ 2 ~ 2 ~ 2) +62
    3. Pet Shop Boys 490 (- ~ - ~ 3 ~ 3 ~ 3) +85
    4. My Chemical Romance 341 (- ~ - ~ - ~ 8 ~ 5) +62
    5. The Used 324 (- ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ 4) +41
    6. Queen 303 (- ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ 9) +45
    7. Metallica 293 (9 ~ 4 ~ 5 ~ 5 ~ 6) +18
    8. Coldplay 283 (- ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ -) new!
    9. The Magnetic Fields 282 (- ~ - ~ - ~ 10 ~ 10) +25
    10. Placebo 280 (10 ~ - ~ 8 ~ 6 ~ -) new!
    10. Sarah McLachlan 280 (3 ~ 3 ~ 4 ~ 4) +12
    10. The Libertines 280 (- ~ - ~ 9 ~ 7) +20

    Those that are new on this top 10 has been played at least 23 times, since number ten last time had been played 257 times.

    Not much has changed, but still more then I expected. Mostly changes within the top 10, but also the return of Placebo and added Coldplay.

    This might be more telling of what I've been playing:

  • 50 000 tracks!

    Feb 5 2008, 11:54

    It feels like it took me quite a while to get from 40 000 to 50 000, but it's not that strange. With moving and all, I've been listening to music a lot less (unless you count my portable mp3-player that's not connected to last.fm).

    The numbers are tracks played (position on the top 10 list at 10 000 ~ at 20 000 ~ at 30 000 ~ at 40 000) + how many more times I've played it since 40 000.

    Overall Top Artists
    1. Kent 1181 (1 ~ 1 ~ 1 ~ 1) +318
    2. Depeche Mode 438 (5 ~ 2 ~ 2 ~ 2) +35
    3. Pet Shop Boys 405 (- ~ - ~ 3 ~ 3) +55
    4. The Used 283 (- ~ - ~ - ~ -) new!
    5. My Chemical Romance 279 (- ~ - ~ - ~ 8) +51
    6. Metallica 275 (9 ~ 4 ~ 5 ~ 5) +23
    7. Sarah McLachlan 268 (3 ~ 3 ~ 4 ~ 4) +9
    8. The Libertines 260 (- ~ - ~ 9 ~ 7) +31
    9. Queen 258 (- ~ - ~ - ~ -) new!
    10. The Magnetic Fields 257 (- ~ - ~ - ~ 10) +51

    Those that are new on this top 10 has been played at least 52 times, since number ten last time had been played 206 times.

    So, what can I say about this? Not much. I'm mostly surprised that the Used haven't been on the list before now, since the have been on constant rotation on my mp3-player for several years. But that just proves what I already knew, that I tend to play music different on the computer then when I'm outside of my home)

    As usual, if one would like to know what I've been listening to lately, it's probably more telling to check out this:

    Top Artists (Rolling 6 month charts)
    1. Kent 287
    2. The Used 73

    6. Travis 58
    7. 50 Cent 57
    8. Keane 56
    9. Editors 55

    As usual, my top 10 songs are mostly Du & jag döden, so I'll just list the top 8 songs by someone other then Kent.

  • Guess the Lyrics! (come play with me again)

    Mag 3 2007, 19:44

    Step 1: I'll post the first line (if it doesn't include the title, then I'll pick another) from 22 random songs from my mp3-player.
    Step 2: Others may guess the song and artist
    Step 3: I'll bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

    There is a list all of the artists used at the end of the post.

    Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

    ***
    1. You had something to hide, Should have hidden it, shouldn't you?

    2. Eligible, not too stupid, intelligible and cute as Cupid, knowledgeable, but not always right, salvageable and free for the night.

    3. I've been told if you want to make it in this game, You got to have the luck, You got to have the look.

    4. The amount of pills I'm taking counteracts the booze I'm drinking, and this vanity I'm breaking, lets me live my life like this.

    5. My life's these yellow lines, concrete, and parliament butts, Exhaust fumes and rest stops who drive hard for their bucks. Load in, sound check, play show, load out, let's go, next city, oh great, off day.

    6. I lived a quiet life, A stranger to champagne, I never dared to venture out, To cities of the plain.

    7. You were the only face I'd ever known. I was the light from the lamp on the floor. And only as bright as you wanted me to be.

    8. One last thing before I shuffle off the planet. I will be the one to make you crawl. So I came down to wish you an unhappy birthday. Someone call the ambulance, there's gonna be an accident...

    9. I don't know just where I'm going, But I'm gonna try for the kingdom, if I can. 'Cause it makes me feel like I'm a man When I put a spike into my vein.

    10. Strong inside but you don't know it. Good little girls they never show it. When you open up your mouth to speak. Could you be a little weak?

    11. I guess now it's time for me to give up, I feel it's time, Got a picture of you beside me, Got your lipstick mark still on your coffee cup.

    12. Drink down that gin and kerosene, and come spit on bridges with me. Just to keep us warm, then light a match to leave me be.

    13. Turned away from it all like a blind man. Sat on a fence but it don't work. Keep coming up with love but it's so slashed and torn. Why-why-why?

    14. I hit the lights on these dark sets, I need a voice to let myself, To let myself go free, Fuck it all and fuckin' no regrets.

    15. You look nice alright and I like the way you nod after everything I say like it actually means something to you.

    16. I hear you breathe so far from me, I feel your touch so close and real, And I know, My church is not of silver and gold, It's glory lies beyond judgement of souls.

    17. Do I attract you? Do I repulse you with my queasy smile? Am I too dirty? Am I too flirty? Do I like what you like?

    18. He wears his heart safety-pinned to his backpack, his backpack is all that he knows. Shot down by strangers, whose glances can cripple the heart and devour the soul.

    19. I'm waiting in my cold cell when the bell begins to chime. Reflecting on my past life and it doesn't have much time.

    20. Young teacher the subject of schoolgirl fantasy. She wants him so badly, knows what she wants to be.

    21. I wanna hold you but you’re out of reach, somewhere searching for your inner peace. I’m just looking for a little squeeze. Face to face and cheek to cheek.

    22. Ah, look at all the lonely people.

  • 40 000 tracks!

    Mag 3 2007, 16:56

    If I'm going to keep on doing this (which I probably will, since I love statistics), I'll have to figure out a better way of presenting the numbers, but for now I'll keep the same method as earlier.

    The numbers are tracks played (position on the top 10 list at 10 000 ~ at 20 000 ~ at 30 000) + how many more times I've played it since 30 000.

    Overall Top Artists
    1 Kent 863 (1 ~ 1 ~ 1) 117
    2 Depeche Mode 403 (5 ~ 2 ~ 2) 52
    3 Pet Shop Boys 350 (- ~ - ~ 3) 86
    4 Sarah McLachlan 259 (3 ~ 3 ~ 4) 11
    5 Metallica 252 (9 ~ 4 ~ 5) 46
    6 Placebo 238 (10 ~ - ~ 8) 65
    7 The Libertines 229 (- ~ - ~ 9) 66
    8 My Chemical Romance 228 new!
    9 Counting Crows 213 (2 ~ 6 ~ 6) 27
    10 The Magnetic Fields 206 new!

    Those that are new on this top 10 has been played at least 56 times, since number ten last time had been played 150 times.

    Interesting to note this time is that there has been so little change. Most artists/groups are in the same place as last time. This will most likely change before I hit 50 000, since Sarah McLachlan, for example, were only played 11 times.

    If one would like to know what I've been listening to lately, it's probably more telling to check out this:

    Top Artists (Rolling 3 month charts)
    1 Pet Shop Boys 81
    2 The Academy Is... 64
    3 Kent 56
    4 Mew 55
    5 Red Hot Chili Peppers 40
    6 My Chemical Romance 37
    7 Fall Out Boy 36
    8 Salem Al Fakir 34
    9 Madonna 31
    9 Leonard Cohen 31

    I'm also going to list my top 10 tracks. This is the first time there is something except for Du & jag döden there!

    Top 10 Tracks
    1 Kent – Max 500 23
    2 Kent – 400 slag 20
    3 Kent – Mannen I Den Vita Hatten (16 År Senare) 19
    3 The Libertines – Can't Stand Me Now 19
    5 Kent – Den döda vinkeln 18
    6 Kent – Palace & Main 17
    6 Robbie Williams – Angels 17
    6 Kent – Klåparen 17
    6 Kent – Utan dina andetag 17
    6 Lifehouse – Everything 17
    6 Kent – Du Är Ånga 17
  • 30 000 tracks!

    Ott 17 2006, 11:45

    The numbers are tracks played (position on the list at 10 000 > at 20 000) + how many more times I've played it since 20 000.

    Overall Top Artists
    1 Kent 746 (1 > 1) 57
    2 Depeche Mode 351 (5 > 2) 61
    3 Pet Shop Boys 264 (- > -) new
    4 Sarah McLachlan 248 (3 > 3) 54
    5 Metallica 206 (9 > 4) 62
    6 Counting Crows 186 (2 > 6) 13
    7 Lars Winnerbäck 176 (4 > 5) -1!
    8 Placebo 173 (10 > -) new
    9 The Libertines 163 (- > -) new
    10 Bo Kaspers Orkester 150 (- > 9) 27

    Those that are new on this top 10 has been played at least 47 times, since number ten last time had been played 116 times.

    The most interesting on this list might be that I've played Lars Winnerbäck -1 time!!??

    This list doesn't really say anything about what I've been listening to, though. Since I lost my external harddrive, and with it all of my music, I had to download new mp3s. With a much smaller collection then usual, I had to listen to the same music over and over again, which isn't the way I usually listen to music on my PC. The results of this shows clearly when I look at my rolling charts (as shown below). Concider that number 10 on my overall top list at 20 000 had been played 116 times, and then look at the numbers of these:

    Top Artists (Rolling 3 month charts)
    1 Pet Shop Boys 150
    2 The Used 142
    3 My Chemical Romance 130
    4 Scissor Sisters 127
    5 The Libertines 122
    6 Mando Diao 105
    7 Panic! at the Disco 87
    8 Erasure 81
    9 Suede 77
    10 Avenged Sevenfold 62

    There is still no use in listing my top 10 songs, since nothing has been able to challenge the songs from Kent's Du & jag döden yet (even though I haven't been playing the album).

    Top 3
    1. Max 500 22
    2. 400 slag 19
    2. Mannen I Den Vita Hatten (16 År Senare) 19
  • Long & Uninteresting Quiz about Genres

    Set 26 2006, 10:46

    I have a hard time deciding on genres when I'm tagging my mp3s, or describing my musical taste to people. I found this quiz on someone elses journal, and even though it's totally not scientific enough to really please me, I thought that I might get a better look at the tendencies of my collection.

    This is not interesting for anyone but me, so I will not link the music here.

    There isn't really any surprises.

    Classical Rock would have gotten even higher points if there were more groups on the list, and the 90's music is also the kind that kind of slowly drifts in on ones computer when you collect music over a long time, without really meaning it to.

    I'm puzzled about my low pop points. I got more points on country then I expected.

    I can see some holes in my collection from my recent hard drive crash, where some of the music disappeared. I KNOW I had a few that aren't there now, like Jimi Hendrix, Bubba Sparxxx and a few more.
  • Guess the Lyrics! (come and play with me)

    Set 24 2006, 17:28

    Step 1: I'll post a line from 20 random songs from my mp3-player.
    Step 2: Others may guess the song and artist
    Step 3: I'll bold out the songs when someone guesses correctly.

    There is a list all of the artists used at the end of the post.

    Looking them up on Google or any other search engine is CHEATING!

    ***

    1. Well is it cruel or kind, not to speak my mind, and to lie to you

    2. Where've you been? Who've you seen? You didn't phone when you said you would!

    3. You think I'm a fascist pig. Right now everything is black.

    4. Raised to be stupid, taught to be nothing at all.

    5. All you bitches put your hands and wave them like you just don’t care

    6. I never want to let you down or have you go, it's better off this way.

    7. I don't want my freedom. There's no reason for living with a broken heart.

    8. And i must admit i was quite shocked, with that thing you did with me on my back.

    9. Spend all your time waiting for that second chance, for a break that would make it okay.

    10. I'd say your worst side's your best side, I never heard anyone, I never listen at all.

    11. I like your twisted point of view, Mike, I like your questioning eyebrows.

    12. It’s getting hard to be someone, but it all works out, It doesn’t matter much to me.

    13. But no matter what you do, it always feels as though you tripped and fell.

    14. Them motherf***ers don’t know how to act. Come let me make up for the things you lack.

    15. Make a circle square, a rectangle curve, Use a smile as a noun and I think like a verb.

    16. I would tell you about the things they put me through, the pain I've been subjected to, but the Lord himself would blush.

    17. There's someting wrong with the world today.

    18. My hearts a tart, your body's rent. My body's broken, yours is bent.

    19. Trails in life, questions of us existing here, don't wanna die alone without you there, please tell me what we have is real.

    20. This used to be the life but I don’t need another one.

    Oh dear, don't I listen to music with the most depressing lyrics ever?

  • 20 000 tracks!

    Mar 17 2006, 15:12

    Since I I listed my first 10 000, I thought I might as wall list these to, and see if my taste has changed.

    I know this is only interesting for me, but:
    1. It's my journal and I'll cry if I want to!
    2. I really like these kind of statistics
    3. It's not more boring then all those memes flying around...

    The numbers are tracks played (position on the list at 10 000) + how many more times I've played it since then.

    1. Kent: 689 (1) +237
    2. Depeche Mode: 290 (5) +218
    3. Sarah McLachlan: 194 (3) +111
    4. Metallica: 186 (9) +58 +128
    5. Lars Winnerbäck: 177 (4) +98
    6. Counting Crows: 173 (2) +83
    7. Sophie Zelmani: 126 (new)
    8. Madonna: 125 (new)
    9. Bo Kaspers Orkester: 123 (new)
    10. Robbie Williams: 116 (8) +57

    Those that are new has been played at least 61 times, since number ten last time had been played only 55 times.

    That was actually kind of interesting, I've only seen that I have the same bands in the top, now I got to see how much I've played each and every one in the last months. I thought I hadn't played much Kent, and that they were on the list because of old merits, but it seems like i have been listening to them the most after all. The bad thing about having so many tracks played is that it's kind of hard to see the changes...

    So, about individual tracks, there is still pretty much just Du och jag döden, with Max 500 in top with 21, followed by 400 slag and Mannen i den vita hatten (16 år senare) with 19 plays each.
  • 365 days!

    Mar 7 2006, 11:06

    I've had my last.fm account for a year today!

    I have played 18447 tracks.

    18447 tracks in 365 days makes 50 songs a day (which actually is a bit misleading, since I didn't play anything at all for 2½ month this summer).
