Pandora's Box

I tried Pandora today for the first time.

This should be a required rite of passage for all people.

All I did was typed in “Adele,” and it started playing songs I love. Sure, there were a couple wrong turns (John Legend and that stupid “Halo” song), but other than that, I’ve been listening to my favorite songs and some new favorite songs I had not yet discovered.

In two short hours, this website has figured me out. It’s creepy, really: it’s managed to do what no ex-boyfriends or past best friends have managed. Is this a website or a mind reader?

Who knows what intimate details of my life this site has deciphered already. I better check my bank account and make sure my credit is still in order.

P.S. I told my middle-aged male co-worker to try it and Pandora gave him Miley Cyrus' "Party in the USA."

I love Pandora - I have it set for different moods :) Even a channel for the girls to listen to while I walk.
