Last.fm + Ubuntu

When I’m coding I MUST listen to music. It helps me tune out and concentrate.

I’ve been messing around with Pandora and have heard about Last.fm. Both are services where you provide an artist or type of music and the service will stream similar music to you. You can usually vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ for each song played and over time the service ‘learns’ about your musical tastes and will generate a playlist for you.

Tonight I was messing around on Last.fm and noticed they had a client download and was amazed to see they had a Linux version!

Full Story.

Yet another...

Non-Ubuntu specific story with Ubuntu in the title.

That aside, Amarok has Last.fm support as well... been using it for the past 20,000 songs I've listened to and it's worked great.
