This is the second in a set of three end-of-year music stats posts. I published my top songs yesterday and will publish my top albums tomorrow. I keep track of every track and podcast episode I listen to on Itunes, my Ipods, Spotify, and Rdio (R.I.P.) by way of scrobbling. If you don’t have all your platforms connected to, then you’re doing it wrong.
