Radiohead still popular..move along....

So, among last.fm listeners at least, Radiohead's new 'Pay what you want' album is getting a pretty thorough listening to!

See for yourself at http://www.last.fm/music/+charts/track/

I guess it isn't really a surprise, but I didn't expect to see _such_ a strong popularity...

Apart from the fact Radiohead are being massively more listened to than other bands, the fact that the popularity lines up with the tracklisting probably tells us that people are still listening to the album as a whole, not picking and choosing indivdual songs that much. Reading too much into the curve, we might even say that (among last.fm users) Faust Arp, Nude and Jigsaw Falling into Place are the more popular individual songs at this stage.
