Last.fm – The Social Music Revolution

Apparently I'm the last person on the face of the planet to hear about Last.fm, so humbly subtitled: "The Social Music Revolution." And revolution it is indeed.

Basically it's a social community site where you create a profile centered around music. It synchs with your iTunes or your iPod -- and serves up on your profile the songs you're listening to, your music habits, your ratings, and other personalized music info. It also shows you band and song info about whatever you're currently listening to. Then the coolest feature is that it personalizes a radio station for you based on your taste in music. And all of this is for free.

Hook me up, man! This is awesome.

I thought I was late to Last.fm when I joined about a year ago, so I no longer feel like the old guy. I've had problems getting the sync to work right. I'd abandoned it. If I understand correctly, though they offer a Mac client, they don't officially support Macs. The scrobble doesn't always work right. Sometimes it tracks my songs, others not. Just very buggy.
