Social Music Overview - Pandora, Last.Fm, Finetune,etc.

"Music was probably the first type of rich media to really go “Web 2.0″ and it’s become a pretty popular place for startups. As a result, there are some great Rich Internet Applications built around social music."

I know this really has no relevance to the post but i couldn't think of a better way to ask a question of the developers. On each track it is possible to buy the song, however is there a feature where you can buy your entire playlist? I want to own all of the songs on one of my playlists but it would be too tedious to go through and individually buy over 45 songs.

-Thanks, Minivitale

Hey, I use your site and would like to make suggestions. How does one make suggestions. IE I would love a Google Gadget for my plugin that I could add to my google start page.

Only 5 skips per hour? What's next, commercials?

Hey can u guys enable autoplay for when we embed the play lists on our blogs or myspace.???

Jaime said...

finetune is excellent, but i'd like to have more than 3 songs per artist

I was big time into a "competitor", draw your own conclusions, but this is by far the best music site out there right now. 3 songs is more than enough for me, just put more artists. My question is why does the play list "end" so to speak? I have one that has over 300 songs.. I would think that would last me all day. Just curious..

You guys have to find a way to make cash doing this, it is too good to go on forever without some sort of revenue model,

anyway keep up the good work.. (in fact someone get with MSFT and let us add this to Xbox Live.. I would listen all the time)

I'd love it if LastFM could scrob the songs I'm playing via Finetune!

Could someone please explain to me how the artists get paid through this. Are they making money each time the song is played, like a radio station? Or is it only if someone buys the song? Both my father and uncle are artists on this site and I'd like to know if their interests are being covered.

A first time user here, and I'm impressed with how easy it was to register, build my 1st playlist, and blog it, all in about an hour. It even works on my Wordpress site! I'd like the option to save or burn my playlist to CD, like Minivitale suggested.
Thanks finetune!

So, I'm wondering...
How did you get this particular facit for expression?
Not that it really matters, eh?

But if you are a total dork, then my path has been lighted for me.

Not that you probably have a job.
Nobody has a job anymore.
Maybe, you just post these things saying that you are a big producer and that you have lost of avenues to make "ME THE MEXT BIG STAR"

As I see it, you don't.
You lie.

I'm fuck.

But, anywho. If it were to be true that me and Leonardo Dicaprio are to be together and soul mates 'O' existance, with a cercumflex, noless, then you are probably a nice person. If you can type faster then me then we should have a race.

Do you read as typed?

Or, it's just really unnesseccary to state these things.

They don't really matter anywho, because these people who surround me are either at/in mork in a fuck98483 squad car or they are the people that the COPS are after.

I choose solitude,, I decided early that this was my mantra -

A world of solitude is oxy-moro/anic. So do you think that - that means it is anti insane?

Run DMC doing yoga is HILARIOUS!!!

ANywho.
Gone.
