Everyone likes music, right? With the advent of the internet, music sharing has become embedded in our social networking by way of internet music stations and maybe even file sharing. That said, here are some of the best online music stations that the web has to provide:
last.fm – With last.fm you can import your history of music listening from all your media players (this is called scrobbling). From last.fm you can get recommendations on other music, as well as get connected with others sharing your taste in music, as well as get info on upcoming gigs related to your favorite artists.
Pandora.com – Pandora prompts you to enter in a song or an artist when you visit. From there, it creates an automated radio station based on your initial song or artist. Pandora is one of those “smart” radios – you are given the option to add more of your favorite songs and artists into your radio. The radio itself will automatically include those songs, as well as similar songs related to what you have put in. If you don’t like something, click thumbs down when you play it, and it won’t show up again. You can pause whatever track you are on; yet you cannot fast forward, only skip tracks, and you can only skip several tracks an hour.
Playlist.com – Alright, so this isn’t really an online music station. Rather, it’s an online playlist. The process is simple: you search for your favorite artist or song on Playlist.com, add songs to your playlist, and save that playlist for later playback.
These websites are just the tip of the iceberg. Obviously more of these free, alternative-to-downloading music websites are out there. Poke around a bit on the internet! Hear about some good music sites from your friend! Websites to listen to music is at your fingertips.
