Every cool trip needs a soundtrack. Is your music collection getting a bit stale? Need help preparing a rocking playlist for your upcoming trip? Run out of places to get fresh info about new music? If so, you're in luck. Mashable Blog has assembled a list websites to add fabulousness to your next trip soundtrack. Below is an excerpt with some additions from us.
When you create your soundtrack consider jamming out at these hotels with in-room iPod docks.
Music Discovery Sites
Musicovery - discover new music with this cool take on Internet radio.
MusicMesh - browse through artists based on their similarities; find track lists and reviews for albums.
Pandora - type in the name of an artist you like, Pandora will create a "radio station" for you featuring that artist and similar acts.
iTunes - Apple's overwhelmingly popular music download store is a service that requires little in the way of introduction.
Last.FM - one of the most popular music communities around, with personalized radio stations, a stunning array of social networking features, RSS support and lots more.
Di.fm - streaming electronic music until the cows come home (or 24/7, whichever comes first)
Audible - largest selection of books on MP3
AbsoluteLyrics - Lyrics for all major artists.
Allmusic - probably the most comprehensive music database on the Internet. If your favorite artists aren't there, well, then you're listening to some pretty unknown artists.
