The [[Foobar2000:Components/Playback Statistics v3.x (foo playcount)|official playback statistics component (foo_playcount)]] stores the information in the <tt>%last_played%</tt> field. However, the current system time cannot be retrieved via titleformatting in foobar2000 v0.9.5.3 and beyond, so in most cases, you cannot calculate how long it has been (e.g., in days) since a track was last played. (See the [http://www.hydrogenaudio.org/forums/index.php?s=&showtopic=58233&view=findpost&p=564223 relevant discussion] at the Hydrogenaudio forums.)

The one exception is [[Foobar2000:Components 0.9/Columns UI (foo ui columns)|ColumnsUI (foo_ui_columns)]], which makes <tt>%_system_year%, %_system_day%, %_system_month%, %_system_day_of_week%,</tt> and <tt>%_system_hour%</tt> available. Hence it is technically possible to calculate and display the difference, but it is only accessible from within the Columns UI playlists.
