    I never used Songza, nor Pandora. Spotify only for me, though it occasionally has some content-labelling issues.

    Also, here is where I admit that I have been refusing to listen to Jenny Hval, because I HATE HATE HATE that album cover. I mean I HATE it. There is nothing that I like about it, not the composition, not the colors, not the content. What is supposed to be happening there? Why is it happening at an extreme Dutch angle? ARGHReport

      I pretty much dropped Pandora completely when I started listening to Songza, because they serve similar functions but Songza makes it easier to produce variety. I use Spotify pretty heavily, despite its limitations, largely as a way of determining whether I want to buy an album. Songza is more like radio (as Pandora is), Spotify is like a listening booth.

      I get the impression that Google Play Music is sort of a cross between Pandora and Spotify, which means I will probably find it utterly useless.

      Or maybe I just fear change.

      And yeah, the album cover is odd. I can’t tell whether it’s planking or someone had too much to drink or what, but it’s a good album. The videos are worse than the cover, though (NSFW):

    Back in 2012, a friend of a friend turned me on to Songza and sung its praises much like you have here. I was intrigued but at the time had limited opportunities to listen to music. I didn’t even own an iPhone! By the time I started regularly streaming, I had forgotten all about it and now it seems too late. Poo.Report

  3. Songza is a fake music service that only exists as part of the war on Christmas carols.Report
