    Default Musicovery

    Musicovery is an interesting little web app that blurs the line between interactive toy and radio. Musicovery lets you choose and explore music by mood, style, genre, decade and much more. Mix and match filters and customize your internet radio experience to suit your tastes, even if that happens to be dark energetic pop or jazz from the 80s.

    Each time you change your preferences in the nav bar the music selector jumps across the screen and plays another song. Genres are color-coded and really add to the aesthetic appeal of the experience. There's a large selection of music to listen to as well, from jazz to classical, hip hop, world, rock and so much more. You can even scroll around the map and choose songs manually. For users with a good internet connection there's no lag or song loading time, so you can expect smooth listening from start to finish.

    The downside about Musicovery is that songs play in a noticeable lo-fi format, reserving the better quality for paid users. Subscriptions are reasonably priced but the registration process is confusing and hints at a number of hidden sign-up fees. It's much better to stick with the free version and enjoy the thrill of musical exploration. For a really interesting experience, try unchecking the "hit" box and select "discovery". You'll unearth a ton of obscure bands you just might learn to love.

    Musicovery is a great way to find new songs and play with different styles of music. It isn't really a game, but it's got the same sense of exploration and fun as any web toy on the internet.

    (thanks to JIG for the review)

    Its a very interesting site. However, I prefer www.pandora.com where you can type in songs and artists you like. The site will then create a 'radio station' for you and it will play songs by other artists (Sometimes the same) that have similiar styles.
    Sing us a song, you're the Piano Man. Sing us a song tonight. Well we're all in the mood for a melody, and you've got us feeling alright.

    If you like discovering new music, and meet people with similar music tastes, you may also enjoy Last.fm

    In terms of radio it works similar to Pandora, described by Coolio daFabio, with only this difference, that it uses data gathered from user, to measure similarity.
    What's more it can create radio stations basing on other stuff than just artist name.

    But as it's main point, it can save names of all the artists and songs that you are listening to, create charts for you, give you other users that are listening to similar music and recommend new music to check out. Also it recommends music events near you and do some other stuff.

    I'm hooked on it, too. Yes, it does repeat a lot; doesn't it?!

    See the music video, it's pretty weird.
