My #46 artist of 2011 was #19 last year with 59 scrobbles, which is a 42% decline. With Street Talk burned to CD, scrobbles relied on "Oh Sherrie" for the most part of 2011. The song was scrobbled 22 times, making up 65% of the scrobbles this year. But while "Oh Sherrie" was dominant in scrobbles, I had discovered a few other songs this year that also received scrobbles. Mostly, it was "Against The Wall", a song from his Greatest Hits CD. It was first scrobbled on July 20th. The song was scrobbled 9 times, making up 26% of the scrobbles. Plus, there was one scrobble for a song off of For the Love of Strange Medicine called "If You Need Me Call Me". The rest were two songs scrobbled from Street Talk, "It's Only Love" and "You Should Be Happy". In 2011, Steve's total scrobbles stand at 125, breaking the 100 scrobble mark on February 14th.

38. OneRepublic
43 Plays

OneRepublic had 12 scrobbles in my library at the beginning of 2011. Last year, they were only scrobbled 3 times, each one was for "All the Right Moves". Their first scrobble for 2011 was "Stop and Stare", from their 2007 debut, Dreaming out Loud, recorded on January 21st. It was scrobbled again on February 6th. On March 17th, it was scrobbled again. Also on that day, there were 4 other songs from Dreaming Out Loud scrobbled for the first time in my library: "Say (All I Need)", "Mercy", "Goodbye, Apathy", and their previous signature song, "Apologize".

OneRepublic was at 7 scrobbles for 2011, but that was about to change, because I was about to see them in concert a week later. They played a free concert at my college in March in support of their recent album, Waking Up. Since then, the scrobbles slowly piled up. "Apologize" was scrobbled two more times in April, and "Stop And Stare" was scrobbled two more times in early May. By then, the band was played in my library 11 times in 2011.

But that was only 4 scrobbles I just mentioned. Why weren't there more at the time? I was waiting for the right time to purchase Waking Up on CD. After finally getting it in May, the scrobbles started pouring in. The album was scrobbled 8 times during the end of May, and it came just in time. "Good Life" was just released as the latest single for the album, and it was gaining momentum in June. The song was scrobbled two times in May, then it logged in 7 scrobbles during June.

By the end of 2011, "Good Life" was scobbled 13 times. "Stop And Stare" was the second most scrobbled OneRepublic song in my library, which logged in 8 scrobbles. Their yearly scrobbles were 1333% up from 2010. Their scrobbles in my library now total up to 55 plays overall.

My #32 artist of 2011 was #24 last year with 45 scrobbles. Although it fell 8 spots on this list, they received a 4% increase in scrobbles.

On January 1st, the first Maroon 5 scrobble of 2011 was "Stutter" from Hands All Over, which was scrobbled for the first time in my library. On January 2nd, 7 scrobbles were recorded in my library from the 2007 album It Won't Be Soon Before Long. The songs scrobbled only once were "Won't Go Home Without You", "Little Of Your Time", "If I Never See Your Face Again", and "Can't Stop". The songs that were scrobbled twice were "Nothing Lasts Forever" and "Goodnight Goodnight".

    Hi. How did you find "It was first scrobbled on July 20th. The song was scrobbled 9 times, making up 26% of the scrobbles." this out? More specifically, how you know the date it was first scrobbled... I just can't seem to find that stat for my artists.
