I keep on fallin'...


Have you heard of Pandora yet? It makes my heart sing! It's Internet radio, and not just random Internet radio either, but customizable radio! You enter an artist, or a song, and it compiles a streaming radio station based on music from that artist and other similar artists.

You can't pick a specific song and start with it, nor can you browse the list once it starts, it just streams. You can tell Pandora if you like or dislike an artist or song as it streams into your playlist, and it remembers and builds your list based on that.

And the best part?

It's totally free!

Pandora gives you 40 free hours to listen each month, and you can make lots of different lists too! If you go over the 40 hours, you have the option of paying 99 cents for the rest of the month unlimited, or you can subscribe to a more advanced service that has more services and unlimited listening.

I really like how it's helped me discover several new artists just based on one artist that I like, Anya Marina, who rocks my socks off. :) This is an Imeem playlist, since one thing Pandora doesn't do is let you compile and post specific lists, I had to use another site.

Some of the songs are only 30 second clips but you can listen to the whole song on the Imeem website. If you look in the top of the box (next to the artist photo on the right side) while listening to a 30 clip you'll see a ? and you can click it to go through to Imeem to listen to the full song, and you should be able to do that without an Imeem account. Enjoy, and go check out Pandora!
