New Law  
I've started using Pandora when too lazy to mess with my Sonique or tired of my 100,000 song library. I've found something particularly disturbing with it, however, even building 'stations' with Yes, Deep Purple, and Ozzy Osbourne. Somehow, within a couple of hours, a Madonna song always creeps in there. Always, whether I'm reaching for classical pipe music or `80s Hip Hop. No matter who I put in or what songs, inevitably Madonna joins the ranks. I have, therefore decided that a law must exist for Pandora which states that the probability of a Madonna song playing shall always be above zero and, with time, approach unity no matter what your musical interests are. I call this Pandonna's Law.

Since creating a station with no bands other than Metallica and Iron Maiden and hearing "Where's the Party" at hour 4:23, I have now discontinued my Pandora account. Let this be a warning to all of you.

You have a particular love for the Material Girl, right? I dig much of her stuff, especially from the `80s and `90s, but mostly from its over-play on radio. The Pandora thing just hit me as rather creepy, since I realized that the same thing happens with U2 and various grunge bands. Put in a female band or singer - voila! Madonna. Hard rock, presto! Green Day. I think that their majority of users must listen primarily to top 40 singles. It wouldn't bother me, but sometimes I'm trying to listen to stuff so esoteric that no major record label would touch it...then zap! La Isla Bonita.

too funny

I also like her 2000s stuff, but didn't really dig her last album (Hard Candy). I LOVED Confessions on a Dance Floor, though. Flew to Chicago June 2006 to see her in concert. ♥
