Pandora.com: Best Way to Find Music You Like
During those long sessions of coding music plays a crucial role in keeping the momentum going for me. With all that music I listen to I'm always on the lookout for new and interesting tunes.
I recently found a website called Pandora Radio that lets you find some great music based on an artist or song that you already like. The algorithms that they use must be pretty good because I've found a ton of new music that I love from some artists that I've never heard of before. The website consists of an easy to use unobtrusive interface that lets you:
- give the current song a thumbs up or a thumbs down
- bookmark the artist or song
- buy the song from iTunes or Amazon
for each successive song that's played. There's no desktop client to install or subscription fee. Just register for free and start listening. I invite you to check out Pandora and I'd also be interested to hear what other sites people use to find new and interesting music.
