LIST: LAST.FM BEST OF 2008



Last.fm Best of 2008
If you've been poking around through music blogs lately, you've surely already experienced the glut of year-end lists touting the best of the year. (And yes, I'll be adding to the mess soon enough.) One year-in-review I was particularly fascinated by was the one at Last.fm, which ranks the year's top tracks, albums, and new artists by total number of listeners on the site. The countdown of tracks is dominated by Coldplay and MGMT, but the other two lists include interesting jumbles that just cry for analysis. Katy Perry wedged between Foals and Fleet Foxes? The Kooks have the sixth most listened to album of the year? Statistics hounds, let your reasoning begin.
