    you do know that the thumbs up/down will help with the type and rotation of the music right.... I use pandora all the time and never have it repeat the same song.

    what he said.

    And you can try last.fm. And there are many other apps in the market as well.

    Yeah, I don't think you "get" pandora. The service has been around for years and arose from the old Music Genome Project that was created in order to classify every song based on 400 different "genes" or attributes. Pandora lets you create your own streaming stations based upon a song or artist and it then builds dynamic streams of songs similar in makeup to your song or artists "genome". As you thumbs up and thumbs down songs it builds a better picture of what you're wanting to listen to. So if you start thumbs-downing AC/DC songs, you won't hear AC/DC songs anymore. If you thumbs up every Metallica song it'll play more Metallica (so be careful with what you thumbs-up, remember it's not just "I like this song" but more like "play songs just like this one"). I've got 8-9 pretty well defined stations at this point that I can listen to for hours without a thumbs-down.

    If you want something that gives you more freedom to listen to exactly what you want when you want it, try GrooveShark. If you want something you can click and forget more like a radio station keep with Pandora.

    I do agree with the OP that on a couple of my stations, Pandora seems to be replaying a 10 song playlist.

    I use both Slacker and Pandora, depending on my mood. Slacker has preprogramed stations, but allows for you to Ban Songs and Ban Artists based on your preferences. It is highly recommended.
