According To last.fm, My Most Listened Artists Over The Last 6 Months:
*Bonus points to anyone who knows this reference.
**I subconsciously selected only songs that did not appear on any of my favorite albums. After realizing I did this, I was happy with that choice. Suffice it to say, many of my favorite songs do come from my favorite albums, but for the sake of non-repetition, I kept it the way it was.
