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?
