To completely rip off my man False 45th's Audioscrobbler recap, well, here's mine.

For those who are unfamiliar, Audioscrobbler is a little thingie that keeps track of the songs you play on your iTunes and then lets you compare them with your friends, other people in your city, people who share your interests, whatever. Totally useless but fascinating nonetheless

Top 10 artists I listened to last week (by iTunes plays per artist):
1The Arcade Fire7
-Elliott Smith7
-Little Brother5
-Deltron 30305
-Bloc Party5
-Ben Folds5

No surprises here except Annie. Annie?

Also, Top 10 artists played by New York City Audioscrobbler members (by number of different group members who listened to each artist):
2Elliott Smith23
4The White Stripes20
-Modest Mouse20
6Death Cab for Cutie19
8The Beatles18
9Sufjan Stevens17
-The Shins17

Surprised to see Elliott Smith up so high - I thought I was the only one with the navel gazing obsession, and Radiohead getting love since it's been a couple of years since their last release. It helps to have a fairly large and varied catalog. Otherwise, Coldplay and the Beatles are the only real heavyweights in this chart.

Anyhoo, I'll keep an eye on this list here, see how it changes from week to week. But surely there are more people in NY rocking out to "Toxic", no?
