Have a listen, if you care to
Taking a page out of PopCandy's book, I went in and made a finetune playlist. And it was kind of exhausting. It's an awesome idea -- put together a playlist of whatever you want and give anyone access to it, for free! But, the site's really slow and really hard to use, and the selection of music is questionable at times too. It's not organized well, and the search functionality is bizarre. When I searched "shins" and "the shins," the one result returned was "Phantom Limb." But when I added one band, it said The Shins were a similar artist. When I clicked on them through that method, their whole catalog came up. And I can understand not having What Made Milwaukee Famous in your repetoir, but, no New Pornographers? Seven Swans the only Sufjan Stevens album you have? A bizarre spotty Spoon collection mainly comprised of things found on soundtracks? Very odd.
But anyway, without further complaint, here's the list. Part of it was put together yesterday when I was having a migraine and wanted to hear only soothing sounds. Part of it was made today when I was in a great mood. And the rest was me freaking out trying to think of that many songs (45) to fill up a list and basically putting my iPod on random and then searching for whatever songs it offered up.
Other things I don't get about finetune: why it alphabetizes the lists, and why you can't start listening at a random point or from, say, the beginning. Very strange.
