After over a year of using Spotify and also with this new iTunes Ping yoke (it sounds like a putter if you ask me) I have began to wonder does anybody find music the old fashioned way anymore i.e. listen to the radio followed by what the fuck was that, not get the name of the band, wait patiently for another two weeks till the song is played again, finally catch the name of the band and then off to Golden Discs!! Very simple process.
Now our music tastes are decided by A] what other people who have listened to this track have also listened to (this is not good damn Amazon) and B] how proficient the DBA who is after creating the system is at linking tables (and this is not an ACCESS tutorial either). Neither options are very satisfactory really.
Below is some good old fashioned music that was once tracked down via the first process outlined above.
