Improving the if-you-like-this list

Here’s something I’d like to see the music recommendation sites try out: Volume-sensitive proximity. How cool would it be if last.fm kept track of the relative volume with which I listen to tracks, and made recommendations based on the intersection not just of tracks in common with other users, but with respect to how much I crank any given song?

You cranked up Richmond Fontaine’s “1968.” LikeMindedUser cranked up the same song, as well as whatever-whatever.

I’ll tell you. Way cool.

To get really deep, iTunes could turn on my camera and listen to me singing along.

You and LikeMindedUser both sang along with Ray Parker Jr.‘s “Ghostbusters.” You should try out Another Song You’ll Be Embarrassed to Own.

What? Bustin’ makes me feel good.
