Pandora: music recommendation engine

A great music discovery tool from the good folks at the Music Geneome project:

"Can you help me discover more music that I'll like?"
Those questions often evolved into great conversations. Each friend told us their favorite artists and songs, explored the music we suggested, gave us feedback, and we in turn made new suggestions. Everybody started joking that we were now their personal DJs. We created Pandora so that we can have that same kind of conversation with you."

Well, I typed in "Dream Academy" and Pandora played "One Dream" a great song of theirs, then Pandora played "Paradise" by the Bodeans, then "Perception Room" by the Lily's, etc. etc.

Very cool tool! (uses a browser embedded Macromedia Flash player)
