Music Top 10 from 2011

Since 2006, I’ve been scrobbling all the music I listen to on last.fm. So this year, for the first time, I’ve gone back at the list of music I’ve scrobbed and pulled out the Top 10s — songs, and artists. This isn’t an explicit “my favorite music from 2011”, but more of an implicit one as ranked by how I’ve listened across iTunes, iPhone/iPod, Hype Machine, and Spotify.

So, without further ado, the Top 10:

Top Artists

  1. Tinie Tempah – 210 listens
  2. Kanye West – 201 listens
  3. Pretty Lights – 173 listens
  4. Film School – 163 listens
  5. Lupe Fiasco – 151 listens
  6. The Temper Trap – 146 listens
  7. Blip Blip Beep – 143 listens
  8. Adele – 141 listens
  9. Two Door Cinema Club – 141 listens
  10. The Glitch Mob – 105 listens
Top Songs
  1. Tinie Tempah – Wonderman (f. Ellie Goulding) – 38 listens
  2. The Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition – 27 listens
  3. Mimosa – I Put A Spell On You – 27 listens
  4. Two Door Cinema Club – Undercover Martyn – 26 listens
  5. Skrillex – Scary Monsters And Nice Sprites – 25 listens
  6. Tinie Tempah – Miami 2 Ibiza (f Swedish House Mafia) – 25 listens
  7. Skream & Example – Shot Yourself In The Foot Again – 25 listens
  8. Deadmau5 – Raise Your Weapon (Switch Fusion remix) – 24 listens
  9. Theophilus London – I Stand Alone – 24 listens
  10. Blip Blip Beep – Freak You Out – 23 listens

Interesting observations:

  • Three acts whose music I bought after seeing a live show without ever known the band prior: Film School, Blip Blip Beep, and The Glitch Mob
  • Dubstep shows up a lot in the individual tracks, but not in my top artists
  • Lupe shows up, which I was surprised about since he hasn’t had a new album (a noteworthy album at least) in quite some time
