Here is one such attempt

In[1]:=
Clear[list1,CommonVals,data]
CommonVals[list_?ListQ]:=Module[{list1=list},Table[{Union[list1][[r]],Count[list1,Union[list1][[r]]]},{r,1,Length[Union[list1]]}]]
list1 = {2,3,4,4,2,1,1,5,4}
CommonVals[list1]//Timing
data=Table[Random[Integer, {1, 9}], {10^5}];
CommonVals[data]//Timing

Out[3]=
{2,3,4,4,2,1,1,5,4}

Out[4]=
{0. Second,{{1,2},{2,2},{3,1},{4,3},{5,1}}}

Out[6]=
{0.771 Second,{{1,11091},{2,
10991},{3,11107},{4,11175},{5,11022},{6,11133},{7,11098},{8,11194},{
9,11189}}}
