I'm looking for an application that can keep track of music that I listen to, and show:

  • Files that I like to hear more often than others (listen count)
  • Files that I skip (bad track in playlist)
  • Files that I rarely listen to (not skip, but simply don't load)

This could be useful to determine which tracks I like most, which tracks I don't like, and the tracks I haven't listened to yet. Is there such an application?

It would be great if I could keep using my favorite media player (MPC) and not be forced to use some other player just to make it work.

I'm on Windows 7.

  • is Last.Fm an option? It can track how much you listen to a song (wich have to be played at least 50%), but it can't wich songs you skip. You might also need this => mpcs.4fan.cz For example, this is my account => last.fm/user/diedie2

Scrobbling is the term last.fm uses for keeping track of what songs you listen to either via its player or through software with a last.fm scrobbling plugin. So a search on scrobbling will give you lots more information on this subject.

More recently an open source scrobbling project has started called ListenBrainz by the same people behind MusicBrainz if you got in touch with them they would probably be interested in your ideas.
