Vote for Michael Jackson!

That’s right – while you can show your appreciation by buying or downloading tracks there’s another way you can do it.

http://www.last.fm/

is a site that tracks the music you listen to on itunes and Windows Media Player. This means it automatically creates a `chart` of what you’ve been listening to over time and adds it to the millions of other listeners. This is done via a `scrobbler` –  a piece of software that is free to download. Thus by playing MJ’s music it climbs the last.fm charts. My own page is at:

Once you’ve done that why not check out Spotify:

http://www.spotify.com/en/

This is an immediate free streaming `jukebox` with millions of tracks that can be brought up at a few taps of the keyboard. You can set up your own playlists and share them with other people. What’s really good is you can link it to last.fm – this is done by clicking edit then preferences and tapping in your last.fm userid and password. last.fm then uses what you listen to on Spotify on last.fm. There are lots of MJ tracks on Spotify.
