To be fair, Pandora is a teeny bit more complicated than that. You can actually get it to show you what features of a track it is using to determine similarity.

For example, Safety Dance by Men Without Hats lists the following:

Quote
electronica influence
a subtle use of vocal harmony
mild rhythmic syncopation
extensive vamping
a vocal-centric aesthetic
major key tonality
prominent use of synth

As long as you use thumbs-up and thumbs-down extensively, you can build a station that follows your preferences quite well.

I tried obsessively for years.  I broke the algorithm so badly I made a station that ended up playing the same 5 songs over and over again.

Lol. If it's been a few years since you did that, I think they may have improved a little since then.

My station plays mostly trance and 80s pop. I review my thumbs from time to time.

(C)rap music. Rhythmic chanting might require some modicum of talent, I've never tried it.

It's poetry. A specific style of performance of poetry. If you don't like poetry (like me) you generally can't appreciate hip hop.

Preloaded bias noted.

Have you actually listened to any hip hop? It sounds to me like you haven't.

Dafuq? What leads you to that conclusion. I don't hate what I've never heard. And I don't hate crap music, I just have utter disdain for it.
