I've seen the scrobbleing thing used by Last.fm and am interested in something similar for Windows Media Center for Windows 7 64 bit.

Basically a program that will play similar tunes from my library based on what is played at the moment or a group of stuff in my playlist or something.

I have a lot of music organised by Album, but tend to play the same things over because I can't remember what the other albums are like, I need a mechanism to choose for me. Most people would call the mechanism a "wife", but I'd like something without the drawbacks please ;-)

Wow, what zone should stuff about Windows Media Center be in too?

WMP does not rate highly in books for managing music however  Winamp is better, also I'm not sure if there is any similar  stand alone scrobbling plugin tool for WMP 12  as it's an open source and used inconjuction with FM

You could try using the star ratings or id tagging and add that to your criteria, get WMP to monitor more folders or changed folders.
 Go to WMP, then create an Auto Playlist : Right click on Playlists in the Library, create Auto Playlist, then Add Crtieria...
