Disco Turns YouTube Into Your Own Personal Music Library

Illustration for article titled Disco Turns YouTube Into Your Own Personal Music Library

Disco's playlisting functionality is still a bit limited, and it's hard to tell what metrics are driving the music recommendation service, which isn't nearly as astute as Last.fm's or Pandora's. And since this is YouTube, there's a very real risk that whatever song you think has been added to your playlist could be the Alp1ne Techno-y0del remixXx of said song. But it's a minor tradeoff, because good god, YouTube has everything. [YouTube Disco via Sillicon Alley Insider]
