What should I listen to?
Do you frequently open Grooveshark/Pandora/iTunes/etc and just stare at it while trying to decide what to listen next?
I do it all the time. I probably visit my own last.fm profile a dozen times a week, just so I can take a look at my library and pick a familiar name to put into the search field (yeah, I dumped Last.FM radio for Grooveshark - I like to hear whole albums).
Enter What should I listen to?, the dumbest web service ever. It takes a last.fm username and a click, and gives back lots of love in the form of good music recommendations (actually these recommendations come from yourself, but you gotta give it some credit...)
I had a lot of fun building it:
- runs on node.js, courtesy of nodester
- IDs are saved in localStorage, and your library's size in your cookies (we need to know the range to shoot at), so no database.
- It has no images per se, the noisy background is generated via
It's not mobile-ready, though that should be easy to accomplish. Source code is on github.
I hope it's useful for a few people out there. If you have any suggestions you can find me on Twitter.
