Pandora stations worth adding

Each day, we face various dilemmas and consequently find ourselves having to make tough decisions. Oddly enough, one of the hardest choices we make in a day is deciding which Pandora station to listen to.

Pandora is one of the best companies in the music- listening market along with Spotify and Grooveshark. Pandora does not let you to listen to the exact song you want when you want to, but you can create stations based on a particular song, artist or genre.

The streaming service is great for discovering new music because it tailors stations to a particular taste. You can give a specific song a “thumbs up” or “thumbs down,” which helps suggest similar music. Also, Pandora lets you shuffle different stations together for a greater variety of songs.

It becomes difficult to choose what station to listen to with so many options. Yes, there are several occasions that cue certain stations: studying, exercising, relaxing or getting ready for a night out. Still, it’s safe to say most of us end up listening to the same stations repeatedly.
