    last.fm

    Admittedly you cant pick specific tracks, but it plays genres (a huge list may I add) and selects tracks it thinks you'll like (if anyone used to use Pandora, same thing). It's very good.

    spotify also has an 'artist radio' feature, that plays tracks similar to an artist that you may like.

    Mr Snips,

    Apparently you can bypass the invite and go straight here. If you want the invite code for the novelty you can drop me your email.
    Yeah, I've done just that. Thanks anyway bud

    Last.fm records tracks you play from music players like iTunes and WMP, they named it Scrobbling, it uses it to make better decisions about music to play to you.
