I’ve listened to 150,000 songs and podcasts since October 20, 2010. This is the second in a set of three music stats posts celebrating these 150,000 Scrobbles on LastFm. Since October 20, 2010, I have kept track of nearly every track and podcast episode I’ve listened to on Itunes, my Ipods, Spotify, and Rdio (R.I.P.), YouTube, etc. by way of Last.fm scrobbling. If you don’t have all your platforms connected to Last.fm, then you’re doing it wrong. The following are my most listened to artists over the past nine and half years:

1. Britney Spears (3,040 Scrobbles)

Top Song: “…Baby One More Time”
