tagging your music on Last.fm



Are you tagging your music effectively? What are the coolest, weirdest, smartest, most unique things you can say about your sound, your aesthetics, your performance style, your genre, your type of music? Be creative, funny, and wild.

It's music, after all. You better take yourself only half-seriously. All music is stupid, but it's also revolutionary and fun. Keeps kids out of trouble. Keeps husbands home. Keeps the bills paid, if you let me help you "monetize it"...which begins with massive amounts of FREE content: mp3s, videos, photos, tee shirts, anything to generate buzz.

FREE = Go from Unknown and Unwanted...to Known and Craved.

Okay? Now: tagging your silly musical output you hope to inflict on innocent fans.

Here's what Last.fm tells users about tagging an artist's music.



[QUOTE]


Tag Your Artists, Albums and Tracks

A way of making sure your artists get streamed on the radio and discovered by users is by tagging them. There are buttons to do this on artist, track and album pages, as well as in the Last.fm players themselves. Tags can be genres, moods, personal notes, anything really! Get as many people, to tag as many things, as possible.
