I’ve recently switched to last.fm for my music moochery. I was using Pandora but I kept hitting their listening cap, and if I’m going to fork out money there had better be no ads. So far I like it fine, but I’m not sure if I like it better than Pandora. They are pretty different systems. I think Pandora may be more flexible in terms of crafting a particular station’s sound, but I don’t really know.
My music tastes aren’t very eclectic. I like The Police and bands that I think sound like them, or who remind me of them in some way. Lots of jangly melodic guitars, clever lyrics, strong percussion. So I like U2, Coldplay, Peter Gabriel, and bunches of more recent bands that honestly sort of fade together in my ears and all seem to get tagged ‘indie’, so I guess that’s what the kids are calling it nowadays.
Who do you like?
