Go to www.pandora.com Go to the station in question Right below station name on the list click "options". Here's an example from one of my stations: musicforhackers. Scroll down to the section titled " Thumbed-down Songs " Find the song in question, and delete it from the "Thumbed-down Songs" section. (iOS app): tap and hold desired thumbs down song for ...

I wanted to see a list of all the songs I've liked (and remove duplicates), but Pandora's UI has made it awfully hard to view all of them at once. I ended up making http://pandorasongs.oliverzheng.com/ to retrieve the list.

I kind of like The 61. It's a website targeted at people who want to discover new music. I found some pretty cool stuff there, but there's also lots of crappy songs. From what I know, it works without geographical limitations. I listen to it in Czech Republic without a problem.

Go to the station's settings (by clicking the arrow near it and pressing "Edit"), scroll down to the "Thumbed-up Songs" section, then press "Show All" (located on the bottom left of the list).

Now there's an even better tweak to make Pandora work outside US. All you have to do is install a Firefox (or Chrome) addon and there you go. No ads, no proxy tools and also blazing speeds. If you are on Firefox, install the HTTPS Everywhere extension developed by EFF and restart the browser. If you are on Google Chrome, install the HTTPS Enforcer ...

There is a good Google Chrome Extension to export Pandora Thumbs Up playlists to Spotify. Once you have the playlists in Spotify, you can export it using the tips here: http://www.spotify-forum.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=15 I'm sure you'll find other tools to export Spotify playlists.

I'd like to second the Grooveshark recommendation, though I either don't have enough points to comment on the original reply (or just don't know how). In any case, a key advantage to Grooveshark over Pandora is that you can play any song you want at any time, and can even replay it. Sometimes I get a song stuck in my head and I just want to hear it right ...

Well, what you want to do is proxy your requests through a server in the US. The best way to do this is probably to sign up at TunnelBroker and set it up on your computer as a VPN. You can find instructions on how to do this on Windows 7 and Mac OS X.

Pandora will "ban" an artist from a station if you give thumbs down to two of that artists songs. The only exceptions are if that artist is part of the definition of the station, or if you have ever given thumbs up to a song from that artist.

From the Pandora FAQ There are two types of skip limits: All Pandora listeners are limited to 6 skips per hour, per station. Listeners to the free Pandora service are limited to 12 total skips per day, across all stations. NOTE: The hourly limit is based on a rolling sixty-minute interval for each skip. So if you give four skips ...

The Pandora algorithm, in an overly simplified explanation, uses a weighted system on various attributes of your music to determine what you most prefer to hear. When assessing a song on one of your stations, try to compare this specific song to all of the qualities you want your custom station to embody. If you feel this song meets a large enough number of ...

No, Pandora does not go out of its way to not play that song. The explanation is simpler - Pandora can play only songs for which it has distribution rights. For some songs it does not have the rights (usually because of the pricing for the particular song), so while it will create a radio station with similar music, it might never get to play that particular ...

Though a paid app, Pandora One is the official desktop application built with Adobe Air.

There's also a slightly complex workaround to simply duplicate an entire station, including all upthumbs, downthumbs, and seeds: Share the station with a friend. This allows the friend to access your station, but doesn't copy it. Have the friend rename the station. This causes Pandora to give your friend their own copy of the station. Have your friend ...

Songs (You) Liked on Pandora is a nice page/app to get a list of songs you've liked (up-thumbed). You could probably request songs you dis-liked (down-thumbed) from the author/creator.

Currently, it is not possible. This was asked in Pandora support forum a year ago and the official response was: Another cool idea, Sheldon. Thanks! We appreciate your 10 cents. For now, you can always QuickMix any of your stations together. :) Lucia The latest message on this page is 19 days old and it seems they still haven't added this ...

If you mouse over the album cover image, and choose the upward facing triangle, you can select "I'm tired of this song". Pandora will then not play it for a while. At one point, "a while" meant one month (?), but it doesn't seem to say any more.

You can't get to specific songs. It's a radio station and they select what to play. You can influence the selections by liking or disliking selections, and that will tailor what future selections will be like, but you can't ask for a particular song like you can when you buy a song on a CD or on iTunes.

Look at what station you are listening to. If it is a band or song really similar to Incubus, delete it and replace it with something else. Also, you can look at your whole thumbs-up/thumbs-down history if you go to the station menu and click "Edit Station Details." That might give you an idea of why Pandora thinks you like Incubus. Amendment: If you ...

I wrote and asked about it to Pandora, this was the reply and it does work. When you want to edit your station in any way, roll-over the station you'd like to edit, click the arrow next to options, then select Station Details. On the station page, scroll down and you will see the Thumbs-up and Thumbs-down. By checking the x to the right of the song name, ...

There are a few ways you can make it a bit more likely that your seed song will be played. Select "I'm tired of this song" for most of the other songs on the station. This will make it much more likely that your seed song will come up. (But the songs you say you're tired of won't show up on any station for quite a while. Pandora doesn't appear to say ...

Run the following (JavaScript) code in your web browser's 'console' window: setInterval(function() { $('.thumb_up_list .show_more').last().click(); }, 2000); Eventually, all of your 'likes' will be listed.

Pandora stations don't really accept requests. You can try using that song as a seed for a new station to check that it's indexed. If it is, try using similar songs by the same artist as a seed. If it isn't, you're SOL (as soandos suggested).

Pandora doesn't offer the option of creating custom stations by genres but it has an extensive list of curated genre stations, which includes just over a dozen of workout stations in different styles.

In the wake of Lala.com's demise, I was in a similar situation. Currently evaluating Rdio as a potential replacement. The selection isn't exceptional, but the web streaming works great, as does the iPhone app.

thumb : This action narrows the scope of the station; thumbing down a song prevents that song from being played again and thumbing up will make sure that that song is played more and that the scope of the station is limited to songs that are more like it seeds : This action broadens the scope of the station; adding a song or artist to a station adds variety ...

There's no "duplicate station" feature. However, there's a slightly complex workaround to do what you want to do: Hover the mouse the station that you want to duplicate, click on the small triangle on the right (if the station is playing, click on Options) then Station details Look at Track Seeds list: If there's just your original song, click Add and ...

In your profile you'll see the list of thumbed up and down songs. You could always just do the ol' copy/paste/clean up - shouldn't be too bad.
