I made you a couple of stations for Valentine’s Day. See what you think!
I took suggestions from listeners and from Pandora staff, and together we came up with these two stations:
Bitter Valentine
Songs of disenchantment, frustration, martyrdom and heartbreak.
Community Valentine
Songs involving the schmoopy, the loving, and the sentimentalists.

Both stations are great, though honestly, I like the “bitter” station a little better. And may I suggest that you even try the two stations QuickMixed together? Both themes mixed together is probably closest to real-life experience anyway. 😉
Enjoy your weekend, however you celebrate or ignore the holiday.
Hearts and chocolate,


This valentine glitter art was mailed to us by a young fan of Pandora, with help from his mom. It’s prominently posted in the Pandora HQ kitchen, of course.

    I'm a big fan of Pandora - please keep up the "Music Genome Project" as it is incredible. I have to ask why we haven't seen you on Twitter yet...this could be an amazing tool for this site. Please let me know if I might be able to assist/advise. Happy Valentine's Day to each of you at Pandora! Matt

    Hey Pandora/Lucia, Off topic, but I'd like to suggest that you allow users to customize the amount of time that "Zzz" puts each song to sleep. So for example, maybe I want to not hear song X for a month, but I don't want to hear song Y for a whole YEAR. There are lots of songs that I would probably not want to hear in my catch-all Pandora station because they are already in my iTunes playlist, but I also don't want to give them thumbs down and narrow the range of my station. Given that I listen to Pandora almost every day (thanks you guys!!) I feel like I am constantly putting songs to sleep even though I know that I'm "only" doing it once a month for each song. I suggested making the length of "Zzz" customizable because based on my perusal of this blog, I see some users suggesting different durations -- two weeks, three months, etc., so I wonder if it's possible to let that option be user-customizable. Other than that, thanks for your great service :) PS: I don't know if I am the only person who is having this problem, but sometimes I put a song to sleep only to have it show up three songs later! (Without getting a message from Pandora saying they failed to save my input.)

    Maybe since valentines day is over you can get rid of the terrible advertisement for choke. It is a little offensive

    I am so frustrated with Pandora! I tried it a few years ago and I am trying it again today, with the same futile results. First, I made a station based on Lykke Li. Great but not enough variety. So I added in a diverse range of artists which happened to include Joao Gilberto (as well as Bobby McFerrin, Bruce Cockburn, and John Klemmer). Now all I've had for eight songs in a row is Brazilian. So Boring! What's wrong?????????
