Are You Scrobbling?

I had to look this up when I wasn’t sure of its meaning in a Spotify ad. I’m too young to be feel dated.

“So I scrobbled my Best of Peruvian Charango, and nobody listened to it. This makes me very sad.”

Via Wikipedia:

scrobble (third-person singular simple present scrobbles, present participle scrobbling, simple past and past participle scrobbled)

  1. (Internet, slang) To publish one’s music-listening habits via software, as counted events when songs or albums are played, to selected internet services in order to track them over time, out of curiosity and/or to make them visible to others.
