50,000 little piggies!

I had decided that my 50,000th track played on last.fm would be carefully chosen and played (just for myself obviously) with a little bit of a celebration. Today I noticed that the Billy Bragg track I was playing was number 50,027 and that the time for celebration had passed. Counting backwards it appears that it passed last night just before I went to bed when I played the new Low xmas single Santa's Coming Over, that I'd nabbed from some blog somewhere...it wasn't very good, far too harsh and lacking in melody, not sweet like most of their very wonderful Christmas EP from a few years back.

Oh well - maybe I'll be more on the ball when I hit 100000.
