My Most Mysterious Musical…

Darn the lack of a synonym for “preference” or “taste” beginning with the letter M.


Anyway, I haven’t posted in a while, but there are voices (outside my head, thank you very much) telling me that, contrary to popular belief, some people actually stop by here once in a great while.


Under such pressure (I’m wilting!), I’m certainly not beyond discussing contrived and uninteresting subjects. So, I will provide an opportunity for you to either (A) laugh at my musical tastes or (B) share your own.


Go ahead, you know it’s option (A).


Anyway, I got all of the following from last.fm. (You can visit my full profile here. I know you’re just thrilled!) Using the weekly charts, I have over the course of the better part of 2 years been charting my listening habits. (All in unison now: LAME!) Some weeks I haven’t listened to a single song, but at the same time I often exceed 300. My record is…. wait, why the heck am I sharing all this? You don’t care! Let’s get to the tables and be done. Even though you don’t care about those either. Whatever. Anyway.


First Table: Those artists who have “won” more than one week, i.e. been the artist I listened to most during any given week.
