AudiobabaI’m still amazed at Pandora’s ability to find songs I like, so Audiobaba has some big shoes to fill even though I like saying the name more. Conceptually, it’s the same idea: take the ‘fingerprint’ or ‘DNA’ of songs you like by finding others songs with similar attributes. You can vote down any results that don’t meet your expectations, just like Pandora.

Any of your searches can be subscribed to and you’ll get feed updates whenever new songs match your criteria.

  1. Kevin, If you’re interested in looking for music based of a profile of existing music you like then you should try Scouta (http://scouta.com). Scouta is a Perth based company and is doing really innovative stuff around tagging, sharing and seaching media of virtually any kind (typically audio and video). I’d recommend checking them out!

    Another one to check out would be The Filter (http://www.thefilter.com) They also recommend music based on your existing collection as well as filling your iPod and creating playlists from your iTunes.
