Am I The Last Person To Hear About This?

Pandora is about the coolest thing I've seen in a while. They make a whole radio station for you based on whatever artist you input. Right now I'm listening to a station based on the Commodores. I wouldn't say it's perfect -- their version of the Commodores is a little too disco, I think -- but it's a cool idea. If you want to add me to your "bookmarked people," you'll find me using kbhagen AT gmail DOT com. Image source.

  1. I stumbled on Pandora a while back and created a bluegrass station to listen to at work. It helped me discover a lot of new music. I have used it for other music and it has not matched things up quite as well.

  3. So I was testing this out. Just for jollies I entered Weird Al Yankovic. Here are my results...

    1) I lost on Jeopardy - Weird Al
    Natch

    2)Trouble - Bob Dylan
    hmmm... Not to suprised, I have always contended that Dylan and Weird Al are equals in their musical genius.

    3) Brown Eyes - Axis
    Huh??

    4)99th floor - TNT
    Huh???

    4) Lemmings Lament - Nation Lampoon's Lemmings
    Here we go, thats more like it...

    5) Island Paradise - King Kong
    OK, still in Humor/Parody domain...

    6) Chewbaca (sic) - Supernova
    Still there...

    7) I Love you - Zombies
    ... and back back to Huh???

    ...And so on. Not to shabby really. Obviously its hard to find musical similarities between a parody musician based on the qualities of his music.

    This is a fun site!
