Last.fm’s audio scrobbler has an option that “scrobbles” a track after to listening to anywhere between 50% to 100% of the song. So the song is considered listened to if you only listen to 4:30 of a 5 minute song. I LOVE THIS OPTION. I wish every music player did this. It doesn’t even need to be an option–just hardcode it to MAX(30 seconds, 0.8 * tracklength)
