Last.fm – listen, scrobble, share

I would recommend Last.fm not only to music freaks but also to people who occasionally listen to music. Basically the three terms listen, scrobble, share spawned in my mind when I was thinking of a good topic for the post. I think they put it like this Last.fm – The Social Music Revolution.
