Is there any way to see all of the song attributes a song has? I know it sometimes shows you several of them when it describes why a song is being played, but I'm looking for an exhaustive list.

If not, is there any way to see a list of all the criteria that they look for and rate in a song? Again, I'm looking for an all-inclusive list.

The full list is not available because that's part of their Music Genome service offer (have to license it).

You can see a long (but not full) list of a song's attribute if you go the song's page. You can get there either from your own profile page or by navigating around. See for example: Tainted Love that lists 13 attributes.


Wikipedia has a rather extensive list of the attributes.

Pandora has a Musical Terms Glossary which explains same of the attributes.
