Last.fm

May 10, 2007|By ALLIE SEMENZA

What's the point? -- A music lover's dream come true, Last.fm is a search engine for new music and a social networking site for those just as obsessed as you are. Simply type in an artist you love and get a list of similar artists. You can also listen to a selection of free clips from that artist or get a subscription and create your own radio stations where that artist and those whose music is similar are on rotation.

What to look for --If you listen to music on your computer frequently, be sure to create a username and download the Last.fm software. It tracks what songs you listen to on your computer, creates weekly top artist, song and album lists, and matches you up with other users with similar taste.
