A legitimate challenger to Pandora approaches

Music is an important subject in most of our lives. It gets us through the good times and the bad. And finding the right type of music to fit your mood is always an endeavor.

Songza, which has been around for several years, has recently experienced a huge uptake in users, and for a good reason.

Unlike Pandora, where a user creates a station catered to his/her tastes, Songza utilizes a “Music Concierge” to help guide you through a playlist.

Depending on the time of day, the user selects what they are feeling, whether

that be “Songs from Apple Commercials”, “Summer Hits of the 90’s”, or “Vodka Escapades- Ladies be Pre-Gameing.” These playlists are curated from music experts from various specialties as well as other users.

And although there are occasional ads that are played, they do not interrupt as frequently as other services.

Songza is available online or as an app for your smartphones.
