Last.fm RSS feeds

Last.fm the musicservice I love to hate. Last year they had a complete redesign of the site and took down a lot of functionality. Things happen but I wasn't too pleased. The site looked better, but where was the functionality? "Not to worry" they said. "All will be back".
After a year of waiting I gave up hope, just as many other people gave up hope. Everything what made last.fm great to use and added value was gone, still is gone and it will probably never return. So...

I started to scrape the bloody site and created (in a couple of hours) what they can't/won't in a year. RSS-Feed of your recent tracks.
mine: https://xiffy.nl/lastfmrss.php?user=thexiffy
yours: https://xiffy.nl/lastfmrss.php?user=<yourusername>

enjoy

update 2016-07-03:
since it was so simple, how about add a little love? Just add '&loved' to your feed an you get your last loved tracks.
mine: https://xiffy.nl/lastfmrss.php?user=thexiffy&loved
yours: https://xiffy.nl/lastfmrss.php?user=<yourusername>&loved

If you're interested in the code, it's now on github: https://github.com/xiffy/lastfmrss

This is a super useful tool; I've been meaning to make something like it myself.

I had a similar problem with twitter's RSS feeds a couple of years back, leading me to make TwitRSS.me which is the same sort of thing, and now gets millions of requests a day -- if you start getting that sort of traffic I'm happy to bung you a donation to help pay for the bandwidth.

I'm crawling the feed for my user account for the front page my site.

I'll cache the results for between 30 minutes and an hour, so it shouldn't put too much load on your server.

Anyhow thanks again :-)

The feed works perfectly fine. Thanks a lot!

As noted this is a solution for missing RSS feeds from last.fm and sorely needed. Thanks so much!

Got a quick question tho.. will you make your code available so we can host it ourselves (and save your bandwidth, etc)?

Again, thanks for stepping up and fixing what last.fm couldn't or wouldn't.

Thanks for this. I've been looking for a way to add my 'Loved' tracks back to my blog.

Thank you very much.

Hello,
Thank you for your script.
But...I suggest you to give a timer for reload new rss content from last.fm for user use for twitter.

Thank you,
Dave
