There are more than four hundred attributes in music that Pandora uses to create customized radio stations.

Pandora creates a playlist for the user based on the songs they chose to give a thumbs up. Pandora also allows the user to do things such as skip a song for a whole month, press a "why was this song selected button" and purchase songs. Users can also customize the types of? lyrics?allowed in the songs. If a customer wishes, they can include songs that contain?explicative lyrics.
