That now built in feature has the option to fetch last played time and play count for each track from last.fm and write them to your musicbee database and then keep it in sync. How is that not exactly what you were asking here?
A plug in to write Play Count and Date Last Played for each music track...
A smile is happiness you'll find right under your nose.
