My Pandora station for the Red Hot Chili Peppers is currently playing Splender-I Don’t Understand, and this is why:
Base on what you’ve told us so far, we’re playing this trach because it features a subtle use of vocal harmony, myld rhythmic syncopation, repetitive melodic phrasing, and many other similarities identified in the music genome project.
Damn, John, and I thought I loved my MSN Radio.
I’m grooving to my Morcheeba station while I try to do pre-press on all the year-end ads we are running.
Damnit, My firewall at work blocks Pandora :(
John – I got the same response when I put in Sugarland except they added the word “twang” somewhere.
RHCP and Sugarland don’t have much in common which leads me to believe that Pandora is indeed somewhat limited – not even as good as my Comcast Rhapsody radio station builder that does the same thing.
John, what pop song doesn’t have vocal harmony, mild rhythmic syncopation and repetitive melodic phrasing?
I’m playing a smooth jazz mix and somehow ended up with Percy Sledge and the Blind Boys of Alabama. And both worked!
Ooh Blind Boys of Alabama are fantastic!
Timeless prose by Pandora that is not.
I would simply like to know when Stirling Newberry started to write for Pandora. Isn’t there a payola scam here? Or something.
Myld Syncopation… wasn’t that the band from Wayne’s World?
I mean, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Oops.
What’s the firewall, Pooh? Do you know, offhand?
No, I work for the Gubment, so trying to find a way around is, er, iffy.
actually, john is listening to a station full of show tunes, after entering “The Pajama Game” as his favorite…
That’s the same thing it told me about Paint it, Black, except fro the guitar solo.
Well, I assumed that you were clerking for the Ninth District in Ankorage, actually. Depending on the beast, though, it may be a config issue on your client side.
Close enough for, er, government work Dem. Let’s just say that it might not be worth my effort (or wise) to try and find a workaround
one could do far worse than a day of _Pal Joey_. Problem is, the lyrics tend to be NSFW.
Splender – there’s a name I haven’t heard in about five years.
I’m interested to see what Pandora suggests based on my recommendation of “Husker Du”.
