Top 10 Songs And Artists Revealed
Music scrobbling service Last.fm has celebrated its 10th birthday by revealing the most popular songs and artists in its history. The service tracks your listening habits, and became hugely popular because it could recommend new bands and gigs based on your personal listening history, provided you "scrobble" tracks via a plugin for your music apps. As part of an interactive infographic which documents the musical highlights of the last decade with stats, they have published the top ten tracks and artists. Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" is the most popular song at almost 11 million scrobbles, followed by Oasis "Wonderwall". Nirvana also took 4th place with "Come As You Are". The most popular artist on Last.fm is Coldplay, with almost 5 million listeners playing their songs 260 million times. Radiohead and Red Hot Chili Peppers followed, suggesting that Last.fm has been more popular with rock fans than the average pop listener. Last.fm Top 10 Tracks Ever: 10. Coldplay "Yellow" 9.
