Last.fm published my listening report for 2017! I like it. A few thoughts:
- The drop occurred during my sabbatical (February–April).
- I rarely ❤️ tracks in the Last.fm app.
- Listening Clock — 4:00–5:00 pm might be the period of time when I’m in the groove at work. 🕓🕔
- Biggest Day — “You listened to 225 tracks on 20 June 2017.” This…seems wrong. I’ll consider cleaning this up by hand; I can delete scrobbles, mainly ones that occur at the same time.
I also appreciated the ability to download images of the various data modules. For posterity:
My colleague and pal, Clicky Steve (unexpectedbowtie), made this epic music video. He writes:
The infamously bumbling Mayor of London […]
I’m convinced. Great work, Steve! 😀
I forgot to post this Rdio farewell screenshot for posterity1. Still sad.

Using Rdio Enhancer, I saved a CSV file of my ticket-smashing Rdio playlist that has 154 songs (which I’ve shared on Cloudup), then manually recreated the playlist on Apple Music.
Four songs weren’t available on Apple Music.
- Control by Alexisonfire (Rdio)
- One in a Million by Bodyjar (Rdio)
- She Broke My Heart, so I Broke His Jaw by Just Surrender (Rdio)
- Won’t Turn Back by Our Lady Peace (Rdio)
San Dimas High School Football Rules by The Ataris was on the Rdio playlist twice, so I removed that dupe.
For posterity, here are the details for the playlist:
- Name: Ticket-smashing (catchy)
- Description: Catchy rock songs to zone into helping people in support, and everything related.
- Song count: 151
- Duration: 9 hours, 50 minutes
While there isn’t a way to automatically import my favorites from Rdio, I finally installed Rdio Enhancer — a Google Chrome extension — which adds features like Export (Favorites) to CSV1, and several playlist additions, including Remove Duplicates2 and seven sorting options.
I’ll post an Apple Music playlist of my previously posted Ticket-smashing (catchy) playlist on Rdio as soon as I can. It has 155 songs now. 🙂
I’ve been digging the Apple Music recommendations in For You, and habitually tapping the heart for many songs. So, I finally reset downloads for Rdio on my iPhone. 😭
The app storage usage dropped from 26.8 GB to 620 MB.
Onward. Don’t blow this for us, Apple Music!
Amy and I enjoyed Sarah perform with Mike Jung and Kyle Graham this evening at Hillcrest Retirement Community in La Verne.
