• My top 50 Artists for 2009

    Gen 2 2010, 1:24 di menslar

    It's that time of year again. I've always loved keeping track of my own top musical acts and tracks, and I'm so glad I have last.fm to make it easy.

    As in years past, I'm also listing the top track(s) and top album(s) for each artist in my top 50, and the position those tracks and albums attained in my charts for 2009. If you see some tracks with the same position number (likewise for albums), it's because they were tied for that position.

    As usual, I listened to a mix of new and old music in 2009. Some of it was new to me, but released a few years ago. Some of it was released this year. And there are always some favorite oldies on my charts.

    The past two years, Fefe Dobson was my top artist. This year, she's not even in the top 5. I decided to give Sunday Love a break and listen to some other stuff. Which artists topped Fefe this year? Which artists earned the top spots on my 2009 artist, album, and track charts? Read on to find out!

    I like keeping track of my top artists each year, and getting a somewhat accurate combined count of plays from different sources is the main reason I joined last.fm. And, well, 2007 is over, so it's time for me to capture the top artists of 2007 in a chart for posterity's sake. Without further ado, here is my chart of top 50 artists for 2007, counting down from 50 to 1. The most played track in 2007 by each artist is also shown.
