Description:

This script adds a context menu item to add similar tracks to the playlist using last.fm's "similar tracks" data for the currently selected tracks. This is sort of like "Genius" mode playlists in iTunes 8.

Disregard my previous comment. You need to install the package python-dcop.

Hi, I really like your script.

It's much more useful than those "Now Listening to..."-scripts.

I dont know how to do it, so i am asking you:
Could you make it work similar to the "suggested songs" from amarok?
By that i mean to give it that repopulate function. I think the algorithm of the amarok's suggestions should be replaced by yours. I don't like the result of the original suggested songs either.

Is it tweakable? (set max. number of songs to add ?)



Anyway thanks a lot.

Amarok's built in "suggested tracks" works differently. This script is a result of my frustration with poor results from Amarok's built in "suggested" playlist. Amarok's builtin playlist finds tracks by similar *artists*. This script uses the *similar tracks* chart. The results are very different. For example, if I am listening to "Buddy Holly" by Weezer, then if I want to add tracks from this chart:

http://www.last.fm/music/Weezer/_/Buddy+Holly/+similar

This script does that for me. If you don't like it, fine, don't use it :)

It's a smart playlist called 'Suggested Songs'.

It works like this: you start playing a song, then load the Suggested Songs playlist, and it populates the playlist with songs selected from last.fm.

By the way. Amarok had this *way* before crappy iTunes.
