    (*all stats gathered on day of anniversary)

    Dear last.fm,

    We recently reached another significant landmark in our relationship: the nickel anniversary! (It's actually nicknamed "wood" but I find "nickel" more appealing) Things have been... ehhhhhh, pretty much the same as our last anniversary, to be honest. And while that is a common symptom of a long, committed relationship, we have to appreciate that we are still into each other. Recently, you decided to *ahem* spice things up with a slight redesign. Barahvroom, boom, boom.

    2011 was definitely more varied than our last recap with a lot more diversity, thanks in big part to my new BFF Spotify. But there's always a downside: too much variety means not much repetition and this year we have the first ever recount without a song reaching 100 plays and don't even think about a single album passing 1000 scrobbles!

    I noticed one particular phenomenon this past year: there were a lot of well-established and previous chart topping artists that were overlooked this past year, some of them, for no apparent reason! I even liked some of their preview singles. What a mystery! Albums like Okkervil River - I Am Very Far, TV on the Radio - Nine Types Of Lights, Dum Dum Girls - Only in Dreams, Beirut - The Rip Tide and Toro y Moi - Underneath the Pine, just to name a handful that never got the change to return. …
