Music, Deezer a new Music Playground, Mahjongg

I don't know about you but I like having music playing when I am writing a new post or playing endless games of Mahjong...So I found a new place to listen to about any kind of music you want...There are some songs that you cannot listen too, but I understand Deezer is trying to reach an agreement with those Artists and Labels.

Now I have had a Pandora Radio account for quite awhile..That's the Music Genome project where you plug in the Artists you like and then it builds a radio station based around the music you tell them you like...It works and I listen to it a lot...but Deezer is different in that you can pick a favorite, say, Bob Dylan: and get just about every song he ever wrote. Then you just click on a song you want and it just starts playing and keeps playing one after another.

I did this with The Beatles and it just gives you page after page of their songs.

You can also create your own playlists from their extensive catalogs. I have started a few like this one

Girl Songs

Girl appears in every Title

What was I thinking About??

So if you like to have some tunes playing in the background while you are playing solitaire, writing your next post or constructing a witty comment to leave here visit Deezer ...if you like to make your own playlists.

I will continue to use Pandora as well because they offer up a lot of music I've never heard before. Plus they do a lot of the work for me.

Now if I could just figure out how to get these things to work in the Shower!!

There has to be peace and quiet when I write. I have horrible ADD if there's other things going on. :) You're lucky to be able to listen to music and write. :D

Sometimes I do need quiet but usually a little background music is nice

You play mahjong? You don't look like an old Jewish lady to me? Who'd a thunk it?
I listen to Pandora everyday at work, thanks for this tip. Sounds too good to be true, keeps you from having to run to the computer to say, "I don't like it" right.

Oh my, thanks bunches for linking Deezer. I'm listening to music from it right now.
When I get home from work, I always turn on the computer and listen to music. The same for eating, or after I get up.

Ah, Mahjong. I used to play that on a daily basis a few years ago. I should play it once again.

TOM said...

Nen, it's easy's true! I still like pandora though

mini tracy, mahjong and works

I'm using Yahoo music right now, and have used Pandora in the past. Thanks for the tips!

Excuse me? I sent you this site and I get zero recognition?

I don't even know how to respond.

I'm now sad.

In any case. The first four songs that pop up when you search for "Kings of Leon" are quite good.

I'd take the credit for discovering these guys but my buddy Tom turned me onto them.

That is all.

Pandora is very very cool!! Thanks!! What type of mahjong is it? Hong Kong Style with 4 players? That is addictive!!!!

I used pandora for a while, but I kinda forget that it's there. The way that I forget I have chocolate milk in the cupboard and the only times I remember is when I'm out of milk...

Pandora is not for listeners located outside of the U.S. - now I'm sad....

man, I am shelling out 12.99 a month for Rhapsody for what it seems deezer can do for free. Hmmmm.

I will have to check it out. Although I do like for the social aspect of it and I don't think deezer will integrate with
