I think it’s safe to say everyone enjoys music at one level or another. The challenge for most of us, however, is finding the time to uncover new artists and other music that fits our particular tastes. Even more difficult is describing what type of music we’re actually seeking. This is where the online music service provider, Last.FM steps into the picture.
Last.FM examines your music listening habits through one or more of it’s “scrobbling” software plugins which work with audio players such as iTunes or Windows Media Player. Your play history is automatically compared with other Last.FM users and combined with the data found in the immense Music Genome project, an open-source initiative which catalogs songs to identify similar sounding music.
Armed with intelligence, Last.FM swings into action to provide artist and song recommendations, a personalized streaming radio station, and introduce you to other people with similar music preferences.
