Pandora, from the Music Genome Project, seems to be getting better in choosing music I like based on a couple of song choices.
Based on a search for Nick Lowe, here's the tunes it played:
“Cruel to be Kind” Nick Lowe
“Vanishing Girl” Dukes of Stratosphear
“Picture Book” The Kinks
“Earn Enough for Us” XTC
“Fanfare” Mark Geary
"Breakup in Barcelona" Joe Algeri
"So It Goes" Nick Lowe
"He'd Be A Diamond" The Bevis Frond
I liked everything except the tune by Joe Algeri so it was pretty good in guessing what I'd like and wouldn't like.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
