Save Time And Money Finding New Music That You’ll Actually Like

by glen

Whoa Billy. I’ve recently been turned on to the wonderful music world of Pandora. Pandora is a free online music player that finds music for you based on your preferences. You type in an artist, and it will find like-music for you to jam to. Online. For free.

On top of that, you can save your radio stations that you are creating, save favorite artists, and bookmark favorite songs. It’s really slick.

My problem is that I’ve tried Yahoo Music and Urge for a paid music subscription service. While they both work great (I like Yahoo Music better), they don’t find music for you. And they charge a monthly fee. And you have to download their player.

Now, I can just play music from any of my stations, and occasionally give them a thumbs up or down. This way I don’t have to worry about constantly switching to a different album or artist. It nonchalantly runs in the background by itself, and I can worry about getting things done instead of what I want to listen to next.

Sidebar: Check out the Pandora FM mashup that allows you to “scrobble” what you’re listening to at Pandora to your Last.fm profile. Very nice.
