Ever since I learned the best music site on the internet is being acquired by Pandora, I’ve been sick about losing the amazing Christmas playlist that I’ve been carefully curating for years. Thankfully, Rdio and Spotify have made it really easy to export and re-import my playlists. Here’s how to do it.
Faltering internet radio Pandora’s newest effort to reinvent itself is a newly personalized radio station called Thumbprint Radio, which is based on all of the thumbs you’ve ever given the service.

Last week, Google launched YouTube Music to a few cheers, a few groans, and a lot of “don’t they already have a music service?” In fact, they have several: Google Play Music and YouTube Red, for starters. But don’t be fooled—they seem separate, but they actually complement one another.
The news that Pandora is buying bankrupt Rdio is very sad indeed, and leaves many of us wondering what will happen to the Dad Rock playlists we spent years perfecting. Here’s a way to export them, for now.

Adele’s remake of Lionel Richie’s classic ballad has hit a milestone that has not been achieved by any other song in history. According to Nielsen Music, the singer sold one million downloads of the song in just seven days.
Playlists are at the core of the Spotify experience, but it’s all too easy to end up with an abundance of overlong ones—after all, once you start compiling the very best disco tracks from Spotify’s 30m+ track library it’s difficult to stop.

The vinyl resurgence is real, but artists are still getting screwed.
Google just announced a “Family Plan” for Google Play Music. For just $15 a month, you get up to six accounts that family members can use on any device. The plan will even keep each preferences and recommendations. That’s a pretty good deal.
Amazon Prime Music is one of those little perks of Prime membership that may be nice to have, but that you don’t necessarily take advantage of regularly. Today, it becomes a more complete service that you’re more likely to use–because it’s getting music from Universal Music Group, the lone major label conglomerate…
Web/Android/iOS: New music is easy to find, but if you want to hear what people think is good, you’ll need to go somewhere they actually choose and post songs they want other people to listen to.
