Tag Radio: My Absolutely Essential 250 Songs (Coming Soon: TRACK TAGS!)


31. Mai. 2006, 15:15

I finally was able to load the Profile + Tag editor in Last.fm (after rebooting and clearing just about everything out of RAM that I could think of, and WAITING for it to finish loading my artists list), and so I spent an entertaining evening tagging songs from my eclectic/bizarre list of 250 absolutely essential songs -- see my previous journal entry for the full list -- all of which are subject to change, of course.

Which means, of course, that I have a new tag radio station. If you are a Last.fm user, you can click on the "More Stations" link in the left-hand column on my profile to see the radio station and select it, or just enter this URL in your browser address window:


(Warning: I reserve the right to change this tag without warning; go to my user page (Quiplash) to get whatever tag I'm currently using for this collection.)

No, it's not my full list, and I actually added another 250 songs that would probably fit somewhere in slots 251-500. BUT I have exactly 250 tracks that are streamable on Last.fm! I think I'll try the "remove one and add a new one" approach with this tag radio station I've created so I keep it at 250 streamable tracks.

And (just for IanAR and the other track-tagger folks) I will be adding all the track tags to this entry as I find time. Woohoo!

And I would encourage all of you to come up with your own Top 250. It really has made me think more about the music I do listen to. And it was so cool to be able to program my own tag radio station, with just my favourite songs. Woohoo!

NO, I am not apologizing for the lack of metal :-) somebody has to counter-balance all the metalheads on Last.fm or it'll just tip right over ;-) and besides, I make up for it by embracing my inner punk rocker.

    Wow, that's a really good list. I was impressed before I even got to the B's.
