What ́s the sort key for the charts when the songs have the same quantity of scrobbles?

I've always wondered about that.

Hold on a second, I meant sorted by the date they were first scrobbled GLOBALLY, not by a particular user.

Let's say Nothing Else Matters by Metallica was scrobbled on the 3rd of October 2004 for the first time ever. Sad But True was scrobbled on the 5th of October. So if you have 1 play of each, Nothing Else Matters will be above Sad But True, because it was first scrobbled 2 days earlier.

How did you think even of that?! I mean it's hard to disprove because you don't know when exactly label execs and music reviewers, that are on last fm, scrobble what.

Right now I have a tie in my "90 days" song chart between "The Lobster Quadrille" by Franz Ferdinand (2010) and "California Nights" by Best Coast (2015). 
I think it's safe to say that the latter hadn't even been written yet when the former came out but "California Nights" beats "The Lobster Quadrille" in this chart. Just a fact.

And what do you think goes for artists?
Maybe it's related to the global number of listeners/listens?

Because I was the first one to ever scrobble a track quite a few times and it was ALWAYS added at the complete end of my library? I don't know, I just always thought it was like that.
