    Together we set out to capture the essence of music at the most fundamental level. We ended up assembling literally hundreds of musical attributes or "genes" into a very large Music Genome. Taken together these genes capture the unique and magical musical identity of a song - everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony. It's not about what a band looks like, or what genre they supposedly belong to, or about who buys their records - it's about what each individual song sounds like.

    Since we started back in 2000, we've carefully listened to the songs of tens of thousands of different artists - ranging from popular to obscure - and analyzed the musical qualities of each song one attribute at a time. This work continues each and every day as we endeavor to include all the great new stuff coming out of studios, clubs and garages around the world.

    It has been quite an adventure, you could say a little crazy - but now that we've created this extraordinary collection of music analysis, we think we can help be your guide as you explore your favorite parts of the music universe.

    We hope you enjoy the journey.

    Pretty much what Pandora does is it analyzes a song from an artist and finds similar songs that match based on vocals, melody, rythym ect.
    It's a great idea and introduces you to a lot of different artists and songs

    It can be found here: http://www.pandora.com/

    I love that site...a friend told me about it...I've found like 50 new songs so far...but sometimes I think it over analyzes when you have too much of a variety in a station...

    Pandora's helped me find a lot of new artists / songs.

    Also, if you don't live in the US, http://www.last.fm/ is a great alternative.

    Non-US users can use proxies, or those IP changing programs. Not worth the bother though. Last does the job!

    Sorry if this is a stupid question, but why would it matter if you are US or not? (I've never used pandora myself.)

    Pandora is the shizzle. I hate it though; It works too well. I have like, 100 songs waiting to be bought. And I'm poor because I just bought an iPod Touch.
