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 Last.fm scrobbling. If you don’t have all your platforms connected to Last.fm, then you’re doing it wrong.
Below are my top artists for 2015 paired with the song that I listened to the most by each artist.
*If we discount PBS Newshour, Taylor Swift falls into tenth place.
