Hi,

A friend sent me this link last night, and I thought some of you might enjoy it.

Pick a decade (1900-now) and mood (fast, slow, and weird), and click on a country on the world map, and it starts playing music from that time and place. I got stuck on here for a while, did my dishes to the 70s "weird" selections from India.

What a great find. Certainly a very versatile and wide ranging selection. Could way too easily get hooked...

Might be a good research tool. I love to listen to Brazilian music of the late 50s, early 60s.

Me too!

Apparently Chinese and middle eastern music from the 60s and 70s is a lot cooler than I'd thought as well.

I'm definitely going to listen to this when I get home.

This reminds me a bit vaguely of MoodFuse.com. It lets you put in your genre you're looking for, energy level, happiness level, and dance-ability level and matches you up with songs that meet your requirements. It's kind of nifty. I think yours is definitely the cooler find, though. Searching music by decades and country -- that's definitely something I'm going to have to dive in to later. That sort of thing always fascinated me.

Edit:: looks like moodfuse is down for maintenance/having some issues right now, though. Sad!

Well - there goes an hour of my night after work. Seriously - just spent 2 minutes there out of curiosity and I can see this becoming addictive. Great find!
