Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson is one of my favorite Pandora finds. It’s totally mellow with a little toe-tapping beat. It is the perfect song to play while my husband makes, what else, Banana Pancakes on Saturday mornings. I love it’s acoustic sound and wonderful lyrics. I just picture a mom and dad dancing in the kitchen while the quiet kids play underfoot. Our actual morning picture is Dad cooking and barking out, “Where is the good spatula?” and Mom typing on her computer. Girls are underfoot, but usually pulling hair and crying. Not so pretty, but I sure love this song!

I am SO 2003, so I might be the last person who does not have an iPod of some sort. I like music, but I’m not totally into music, so why buy an iPod?

I do spend a lot of time on or near my computer so I think I’ve found the perfect solution.!

Basically, Pandora lets you create your very own radio station. Simply enter your favorite artist or song and Pandora will create a radio station. As songs come up, you give the thumbs up or thumbs down, which Pandora uses to select the next song. You can add other songs and artists to create a custom mix, too.

My favorite feature of Pandora is it selects other music you’ve probably never heard. Why is this great? Well, it will be of such a similar style to your faves that you’ll probably want to add that to the mix as well. You can create different radio stations to suit your mood.

In detailed terms, Pandora is the result of the Music Genome Project. Musicians and scientists got together and determined what exactly makes a piece of music unique, what are it’s identifying characteristics. They compiled all this information into the Music Genome Project. Let me just say, the results will amaze you!
