I always liked going to the Barnes and Noble music listening stations, mostly because of the red dot net similar artists feature. This feature allows you to type in a band and find similar bands and to give em a listen. I thought, how great would it be to have this at home. Thanks to Pandora now I do and now, I am exposed to tons of artists I may have never been otherwise.
The way it works? You type in a song or artist you like and it creates a station of similar artists/songs. It’s free, all you have to do is create an account.
Pandora was created by the music genome project, this is what they have to say about themselves:
“Ever since we started the Music Genome Project, our friends would ask:
Can you help me discover more music that I’ll like?
Those questions often evolved into great conversations. Each friend told us their favorite artists and songs, explored the music we suggested, gave us feedback, and we in turn made new suggestions. Everybody started joking that we were now their personal DJs.
We created Pandora so that we can have that same kind of conversation with you.”
So if you like music, I mean really like music…
