Music is a piece of our culture that is constantly changing and evolving. There are many styles, preferences, and performers. Everyone has their own taste in music and it is not uncommon for someone to like several types of genres. When listening to the radio they generally only play one genre of music and target one audience. It is hard to find a method of listening to music that allows you to pick what genre of music you want to listen to and even let you pick your songs.
There are websites out there that do let you listen to the type of music of your choosing, the most popular is probably Pandora.com. They allow you to create your own stations but they select the songs that are played. The beauty of Pandora.com is the fact that they allow you to play as many stations at as you want in a shuffle format. For example, if you want to listen to a channel playing country, a channel playing songs related to Red Hot Chili Peppers, and a hip hop channel they allow you to play all three channels at one time. They will shuffle between those three channels playing songs in those channels only. Pandora is a free service for the first 40 hours if every month, but, you have to pay after to use their service after the first 40 hours. They also have a phone app that you can open and play through the speaker on your phone.
Although Pandora is an excellent method of customizing the music you listen to it does not let you customize your own playlist with songs of your choosing. The best method for this is using YouTube.com. Yes, YouTube.com is a video site but they have hundreds of thousands of music videos and videos with songs in them. Even new releases are found on YouTube.com. YouTube.com also gives you the ability to create playlist. You can search for music videos and add them to your playlist. You can create one playlist with all your music or even create multiple playlist with certain songs in each playlist. When playing your songs YouTube.com even gives you the opportunity to shuffle or play in the order you choose. This is completely free, you just need to sign up for a YouTube.com account.
