The Retrospective

The other night I was hanging out with my roommate, Juan, and his lady.  He was making dinner and I said, “Hey, let’s turn on some music.  Anyone have any suggestions for me to put into Pandora?”  Juan, being the poster child of brilliance, had a better answer-  “Oh, have you ever tried Musicovery?  It’s an older program, but way better than Pandora.”

I pull up the site on his laptop and start clicking around.  First of all, the interface is gorgeous, its a big web of colored circles and on a sidebar you can choose genre, tempo, dark vs. positive, and calm vs. energetic.  Like Pandora, you can bookmark the songs you like or dislike.  Also, you can choose the decade and year that you want music from.  We wound up playing a combination of jazz, world, funk, and disco from the 1970s to present along with a dark feel and energetic beat.  Yessssssss.

The other fun thing is that  you can get lost fooling around with this website for hours.  Good times.  It’s my favorite shiny new toy!
