Music Intersector Now With Up to Five Users


Some time ago, I created a little addon to Last.fm called Music Intersector. It shows which bands are common between the favorites of two users. As you might have noticed, Last.fm has integrated this functionality into its own system, so my old music intersector became a bit pointless.

Not anymore. I just updated it and it can now show the musical similarities between up to five users. Perfect for small parties and gatherings. :)

Unfortunately, the number of results declines extremely rapidly with more than two users. There is not much that I can do about it, since Last.fm only offers access to the top 50 artists and not the whole profile.

Last.fm Open Mind Index – How open are you to different styles of music?


The list of Last.fm extensions is still expanding. :) Today: The Last.fm Open Mind Index

With this tool, you can calculate your personal Open Mind Index (OMI). The OMI is intended to reflect the bandwidth or your personal musical taste. The higher the number, the broader is your taste in music and the more open you are to different styles of music.

Yet another toy for Last.fm: MoneyCalc.

Using data from Last.fm and Amazon, MoneyCalc tries to figure out how much it would cost to buy the top 50 records of your Last.fm profile. For each record the price at Amazon is queried. The result is presented in a list which shows each single price as well as the final sum.

Last.fm Normalizer – Charts by Listening Time Instead of Play Count


Last.fm

A little extension to Last.fm generates Charts of your personal listening habits. In contrast to the official Last.fm-Profile-Charts, it doesn’t rank artists by the number of times that you listened to their songs, but by the time you spent listening.

How mainstream are you? – The Last.fm-Mainstream-O-Meter


Last.fm Logo

You are 17.35 % Mainstream!

Crap! Looks like I am less alternative than I thought. :)

With the Last.fm-Mainstream-O-Meter, users of Last.fm (see “Discovering Music that You Like“) can see, how much their listening habits overlap with the evil mainstream. You only have to enter your Last.fm username and the webservice calculates – somehow – your mainstream factor in percent.

Discover New Music That You Love (or at least like)

» Deutsch

Searching for music

Music is great. Music is manifold. Everyone has his own taste of music. What is loved by one might be refused by the next.

These different preferences make it pretty difficult to find new great music. The spectrum is – fortunately – large, but finding the music that appeals to you personally turns out to be like the search for the needle in the haystack.

Several internet services have lined up to help easing your search – time to give you an overview of the most important services of their kind.
