Pandora’s Jukebox

This is amazing. It’s presented by the same people who created the Music Genome Project.

Here’s the gist: “Tell us one of your favorite artists or songs, and we’ll create a station that explores that part of the music universe.”

So let’s say you type in “Street Life” by Roxy Music (best song ever, basically); if has it in its data base (with over 10,000 songs in it, chances are it does), it will play that song and then a bunch of others similar to your choice. Voila, a quality block of listening pleasure with minimal effort on your part. And you’ll probably get turned on to some great new tunes, to boot (but not to bootleg).
