You pick a song or artist to start the ball rolling, then they pick similar songs or artists that you can give a thumbs up or down. (You can also skip past the songs you don't like.) Over time it will adjust the playlist based on your likes or dislikes.

Oh yeah...it's free.

I’ve been listening today and it is indeed very cool.

I clicked on the Why Did You Play This Song link and this was the response:

“Based on what you’ve told us so far, we’re playing this track because if features mild rhythmic syncopation, acoustic rhythm piano acoustic sonority, string section beds and heartbreaking lyrics.”

So far, I am quite impressed with how it is zeroing in on my “soft music” taste. There were a few missteps at first, but the last handful of tunes have been very nice. A great way to experience new artists in a specific genre.

Next time, I’ll have to hit it with my “rowdy music” taste and see how it does.

I've had it going for a few hours now. It seems to find all sorts of music that I like, but very little that I've heard before. Nice alternative to the repetitve song list of most radio stations!

Good stuff.

Bob Dole is glad some folks are finding it useful.

There are similar sites, but this one seems to have some lesser known artists and appears to base the selections on something other than the standard "other people that like this song also like..." system.

Hopefully they won't trash it up when they start getting advertisers.

Bob are you a registered user? Free? If so, are the ads different than what is shown when initially going to the site? Not pop ups are they?

Bob Dole did the free registration and has yet to hear an audio commercial. The mention of future advertising makes Bob Dole think that it's coming, though. Visual ads don't accomplish much when the thing is running in the background or you're listening from another room.

Haven't experienced any popups yet.

I typed in Stephen Stills (CSN) and am getting some pretty good classic rock/singer songwriter music.

I picked Tool to start. It played Parabola for me.

Then the second song is.... Falling Apart by Trust Company. I suppose I'll give it a shot.

Er... I may change my mind by the time I hit submit.

Bob Dole did quite a few thumbs down to start off, but it turned out pretty good after about 30 minutes.

OMG! This is f*cking awesome. You deserve more than just rep. I typed in "Bessie Smith" and like magic....I'm in blues heaven.

I like 3 doors down... so I'm cool with them playing it... but I can't imagine what the **** led them from Tool to 3 Doors Down

Me too. I really like the fact they have a lot of lesser known bands in the mix. Very cool to hear something new.

Plugged in...

Skindred
System of a Down
Korn
Prodigy
Disturbed

Got to hear several bands I've never heard of before but like so far.

Flaw
Hazen Street

Good stuff there Bob Dole! Now maybe I won't have to rely on you for cool new music all the time.

Bob Dole has done very well again, thank you! This is good stuff. I wanted smooth jazz so I asked for Fattburger and it went to The Rippingtons and Spiro Gyra. Excellent!

It might be cool if the people who get one (or more) set up that they're happy with share them and provide a general description. You can get the share URL by using the share function and emailing it to yourself.

Listened for around 10 more mintues of dog$#it then gave up...
