Last.fm

People often ask me what I’ve been listening to recently. With my bad memory, I usually struggle to recount most of what I’ve been jamming out to! Fortunately, nearly everything I listen to gets tracked through a service called Last.fm. It’s a site that has apps that you can download to track the music you play on your computer or on your phone and gives you recommendations based on what you’ve listened to. Each time you play a song and it is tracked, it’s called a “scrobble”. I will state that I do not have experience using Last.fm on iPhones or Macs, so I can’t tell you how well it works there. However, I can tell you it works great on Windows and Android. Some services even have built in support like: Spotify, Deezer and Tidal.

With my setup, I use the following:

Android
Simple Scrobbler – a third party scrobbling app that is compatible with many music apps and can track any app that uses notifications

Windows
Foobar2000‘s Audioscrobbler component – my favorite extremely customizable music player
JRiver – paid iTunes alternative that includes built-in Last.fm support
Deezer – has built-in Last.fm support

Here is my profile page. It’s the best way to keep on top of what I’ve been listening to! You can look at it organized by month, artist, album, or by song!
