Okay, I’m absolutely infatuated with this site. Pandora.com is what they call “Radio from the Music Genome Project.” It’s really very cool. I created what I named “My Angry Radio”, suggested a few bands, and let it go. The nice thing about it is that I don’t think I paid much attention to the Donnas or the Boils (I couldn’t even tell you who the Boils are), but because their music is similar to the bands I suggested (Linkin Park, Offspring, and Hole), voila! Their music appeared on my playlist.
I have the option to give songs a thumbs-up or a thumbs-down. There was one song, for example, from another band I’ve never heard of, that I really didn’t care for. So it got a thumbs-down. But then it played one of my favorite Veruca Salt songs, and I gave it a thumbs-up. It’s all very cool.
So, if you haven’t opened up Pandora’s music box, I highly recommend it. I’m almost tempted to subscribe and buy the equipment so I can listen to it at home, but I’m just not quite ready for that kind of commitment.
