How To Use Scrobble in Your Last.fm Account

This post is long overdue! I didn’t get into Last.fm until earlier this year, and I still probably don’t utilize it to its full potential, but recently, I’ve been getting super into looking at my data through Scrobble. Scrobble is essentially a feature on Last.fm that will track what you are listening to and how many times. You can view your information by logging in through your Spotify account and seeing your last played songs, albums, artists: you name it! I’m not sure if this works through Apple Music, so I apologize if you are the one who uses Apple Music (which if you do, why??)

If you don’t remember, I shared a similar post in June 2018 that showed you how to listen to your popular songs, artists, albums, etc. through a special trick I found on Facebook. You can see that here. However, I prefer this method because it’s aesthetically pleasing and I think it’s a bit more accurate overall. The other way that I used to find this information tended to repeat songs and albums in the list, which didn’t really make the most sense. Overall the website could use a bit of a facelift in terms of direction and helping the user understand all of the moving parts, but nothing is perfect. For example, I had to create the third graphic below because the website wouldn’t give me one for the songs, but it did for artists and albums. I digress.

I’ve pulled my listening data from the last 30 days—September 29 to October 29. My header image features my top 5 artists from the last year.
