A friend of mine shared his Grooveshark playlist with me a few months ago. I spent about an hour with it just finding great music and adding it to my current song selections. Last night I signed up and started putting together one for me and my wife to listen to while playing our nightly ping pong game. Well, easily another hour went by. I would find a song I like, then find versions I’d never heard of by artists I’d never heard of, then I’d find artists that had a similar style to the ones I had found, and it just kept going. I’m sure these kinds of experiences will only be more frequent as time goes on.
The artists that the site chose were well known. I wonder if something like that could be done for indie artists as well? Hmmm, now that would be a pretty nice business model for someone.
