yeah lol, this is also ridicilous. And i've only a last.fm account since aug 2016. Between march when I discovered her and aug 2016, i was obsessed, i probably only listened to her 16 hours each day. It started with Genesis but Halfaxa quickly took over. Halfaxa & Visions probably have each between 1000 and 1500 listens.
