YouTube Disco - Create your own music streaming playlists

New today from YouTube is Disco, their new music discovery service.

Essentially it creates a playlist of tracks that you stream in order. You start off by inputting the name of a band, and then it created a default playlist of about 30 tracks. You can add or remove items, then same, and share.

This is a (pretty lazy) selection around the Rolling Stones, including tracks from Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Who, The Kinks, and more. You can save, and share. Some of the tracks come from Vevo, which is blocked outside the US, so it skips over those.

It's not perfect (it scheduled a liver version of Satisfaction straight before a studio version), but as with all things Google, it will only get better. I'm guessing that it works on mobile phones too.

Watch out Pandora, and Spotify.
