    A long time ago I wrote a site called Historical Charts to create charts for any timeframe you might want. It's been quietly successful so I've spent a while creating a new and improved version, which I've called Explorer.

    Interesting additions to the old formula at the moment are:
    • A few charts showing weekly playcounts and the like
    • Charts for favourite new artists (i.e. one's you'd not scrobbled before a particular date)
    • Information about your most extreme weeks (e.g. in August 2008 I scrobbled Fleet Foxes 276 times)

    For the moment it's just artist data, nothing about albums or tracks. If that's your thing then troublewithdreams is still there (for a few months at least).

    I think people'll like it. Any feedback any of you have would be really super.

    great tool, i bookmarked your page.

    maybe you can add an option to see our top daily scrobbles like top weekly charts. when we choose a year it shows top 10 weeks and top 10 days. maybe there can be a day chart like week charts

    Sorted that.

    If I get what you're asking that's not possible, it pulls in weekly data rather than each individual scrobble - I contemplated the latter but it simply means storing too much data.

  • Nice!

    Though, it seems to be including music I'd accidentally scrobbled, then deleted from my library...

    Interesting. If that's the case then it's because are making it available through the Web API - all it's doing is asking for all of your weekly artist charts. If they're in there they'll be included.

    Track data

    Great tool, although what I'm really interested in is comparable track data, i.e. not the artist I played the most over a particular period but the track. Are you still considering adding that feature? Troublewithdreams isn't working (for me, at least - just says no data available for all time periods).

    Eventually. I'm in no great rush. I've disabled trouble's historical charts updating because it's using the same API key and I'd rather not break their request limit. I suppose if anybody is interested I could post the source, it's just a basic PHP program.

    Oh and the source for Explorer is here:, it's a bit more involved but nothing too complicated.

    Play counts are not correctly calculated

    Thank you for such a useful tool.
    Though, an error has occurred in my username "GlassFantasy ".
    The play counts are not correctly calculated and they are reflected only the first one week.

    Of course, each weekly ranking is calculated correctly on website.

    Would you mind looking into this?

    I'm not entirely sure why it went wrong, but in any case I visited the update page again and it pulled in your other two weeks. Thanks for the feedback!

    This is great. I have an idea for a chart or list you could add: Weekly Top Artists. Go through the weekly charts, take the top artist from each chart and count which artists top the most weeks. (You'd have to decide what to do if there's a tie. Maybe count both artists, as long as there were other artists scrobbled less times that week.)

    I notice that incorrectly spelled artists and deleted plays are counted in some of the charts, but I guess there's not much you can do about it if doesn't update our weekly charts retroactively.

    Minor bug: "Invalid username" if username has any special characters (-+*/)

    It's because changed their username policy several years after starting. The current registration form says Your username should be between 2 and 15 characters, begin with a letter and contain only letters, numbers, '_' or '-'.so you wouldn't be allowed that hypen and Mrs DNA wouldn't be allowed that space any more. In any case, it's fixed.

    Any other usernames out there that don't fit their pattern?

    Bloopy that's a good suggestion cheers. I've considered doing something similar in the past.

    Thank you for the last correction but a similar problem occurs again.
    Data during the latest week(01/05/2011) is not added.

    There may be a bug in my data, so could you delete all my data once?

  • Really great tool, I'm using it frequently, but I noticed that the week from 17-23th October is completely skipped in my personal stats and from that point on the weekly stats show the stats of the week after. Is there anything you can do about it?

  • Is your site gone?

    I wanted to do some parsing, but your site isn't loading. Is it gone?

    kleinenfreunde, that should be fixed now.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Update the statistics

    Very nice work.

    I have one question.
    How can I update my stats ?
    I've tried to and I still don't have the "FEBRUARY5th" but a friend has this week in his stats.
