I've been carefully ranking my music collection in iTunes. I reserved five stars for my all time favourite songs, songs that changed my life, songs that I think of when I think of major iconic musicians. When I started using Last.fm I got the idea to listen to all my five star songs and 'love' them. Having transfered that meta info I could then access it using their API and a bunch of PHP code and make this, my latest greatest mashup.
Rheostatics are a Canadian indie rock band. Although they had only one Top 40 hit (Claire in 1995), they were simultaneously one of Canada's most influential and most unconventional rock bands in the 1990s, a band whose defiantly quirky, yet compelling, take on pop and rock music has been described both as iconic and iconoclastic. They played their farewell concert to a sold-out house at Toronto's Massey Hall on March 30, 2007. Sound board recordings of that and many other shows are available (with permission) at http://rheostaticslive. Read more on Last.fmadding this to your collection.
