PostSubject: Top 20 "Most Played" Artists   Sat Aug 06, 2011 3:58 pm

I scrobble to Last FM when I listen on the computer, it can give you an interesting way to look at your listening habits.

Now of course this doesn't catch everything because nothing is keeping track when I play LPs or CDs or DVDs.

But it's a good measuring stick regardless. These same stats can be gathered out of most Media players (WMP or iTunes).

Shawn's Top 20 (over the last 2 years)

1. Porcupine Tree
2. Black Sabbath
3. Opeth
4. Iron Maiden
5. Jimi Hendrix
6. Rush
7. Thin Lizzy
8. Slayer
9. King Crimson
10. Jethro Tull
11. Deep Purple
12. Yes
13. King's X
14. Robin Trower
15. Lucifer's Friend
16. Siena Root
17. E.L.O.
18. Blue Oyster Cult
19. Pink Floyd
20. Led Zeppelin

if you sign up for Last FM it will also track your stats from your iPod for you (it updates when you sync).

Wilson only has 1 solo record so far, so I haven't played it nearly as much as those other bands that have large discographies.

Also, a band like King Crimson would be higher on the list if they had shorter songs. LOL.

That's also why there aren't any jazz artists on the list, longer songs = less times played.

Hmm, I have a Last FM account, but have never synched it. If I had to guess the top 10 most played recently though:

1. Blue Oyster Cult
2. Thin Lizzy
3. Black Sabbath
4. Voivod
5. Nektar
6. Iron Maiden
7. Judas Priest
8. AC/DC
9. D.I.
10. T.S.O.L.


Much like Shawn and Shawn (haha) had been talking about, as far as palate cleansing and all that, I've pretty much reverted solely to my favorites and am selling most of my other discs. With that came a reminder of how much I like So. Cal punk

I don't keep track of my listening habits, but I've been listening to allot of assorted Wino projects lately. Jamming lotsa the new releases, revisiting the old and filling in some gaps in the collection.



I've also been revisting allot of my 80's hair/glam stuff lately.

It's also interesting to see 'Ryche on that list, especially so high. Don't get me wrong it's just so many people rag on their stuff past Empire.

Wishbone Ash is easily one of my favorite bands, and Queensryche too. But really only up through Promised Land. I can't stand their newer releases either.

6) KISS
7) Mendoza (they only had one album but damn is it good)

11) Mad Conductor
12) Peter Tosh
13) Authority Zero
14) Edgar Broughton Band
15) Аква́риум

Iron Maiden and Rush would have many more plays because I've been watching a bunch of live DVDs.
