If you happen to be getting too much Manilow from Pandora, you have the option of adding variety to your station. I happen to have a Neil Diamond station, and I’ve definitely noticed that over time, as I give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down to the songs it’s played for me on that station, that the content can get pretty narrow and even repetitive.
So, you can either add variety to that Manilow station, create a new station that’s of a different genre, or even create a QuickMix of selected stations that you already have created.
I know what Aaron means by getting the live versions of the songs rather than the studios. In many cases, it looks like the songs come from the “greatest hits” compilations, which tend to lean in that direction. I imagine it does have something to do with the licensing.
All in all, though, it’s a very cool site with minimal advertising. I’ve been exposed to more new groups and songs through Pandora than I could ever get through my local broadcast radio stations.
