Grooveshark

April 12, 2010 § 2 Comments

It has come to my attention that I’m actually ahead of the learning curve on this trend and should share. A few months ago my coworker introduced me to Grooveshark. I figured I was probably one of the last people to discover this awesome online music site, but alas! I have discovered that there are many like me that have never heard of it. Let me educate you.

Grooveshark is sort of like Pandora, but better! Instead of entering a song or artist and getting songs that sort of sound like the one you actually want (like on Pandora) – Grooveshark lets you make your own playlist of any songs you want. Just enter an artist or song and it’ll come up with a huge list. Grab it and hit play. It’s amazing. Instead of buying ITunes now, I just go there to see what I like, then upload them to my playlist on Grooveshark. Don’t worry. It is completely legal and has been a lifesaver at work. The only weakness I’m finding is if you find a favorite song, you’ll play it over and over and over until you hate it. I did that a little too much with Lady GaGa. Sorry GaGa! We need a break. Check it out and let me know what you think!

    thanks for the tip! i am listening now… awesome.

  • Psonar is another worth checking out.

    It’s a free cloud-based solution which is focused on allowing users to do more with music that they own, unlike streaming services where you effectively ‘rent’ the music as long as you continue to subscribe (and hope that the music doesn’t get pulled by the copyright owner.)

    With Psonar you can upload the music you own to the cloud, so it’s accessible everywhere, from any internet-connected device.

    You can also search and listen to 30 second clips of any other track uploaded to the cloud and buy that music if you like.

    Psonar also provides web-based iTunes-style management so that you can drag and drop tracks to any device that you can connect to a PC via USB. This enables you can have your music on your device when that’s best, but also in the cloud. This means it is great for backup: http://blog.psonar.com/2010/02/26/laptop-dead-music-safe/

    So – it’s perfect if you love your old MP3 player, want to keep your music on an inexpensive memory stick or for when you don’t have an internet connection and thus offers you the best of both worlds.

    Finally, by utilising the cloud, Psonar can do what the cloud is great for – discovery and social.
