Is there an application that can look at the songs I have bought with iTunes and provide me with recommendations of new songs to buy?

As been previously said, there is a built-in feature of iTunes named 'Genius' that does exactly this. It can be accessed in two ways:

  • Select the iTunes Store item from the source list to the left in the iTunes main window. When the store is visible, scroll down a bit to the section titled 'Genius recommendations', where you will find recommendations for new music to try based on what you've previously purchased.
  • Select a song in the iTunes window, and click the button in the lower right corner that has a a square with a left-pointing arrow inside. This will display the Genius sidebar, which recommends new music based on this particular song in your library.

Thanks, I though that feature only put together playlists –  Casebash Aug 30 '10 at 5:57

iTunes Genius feature. It's already built in with iTunes.

The problem with Genius is that is can only suggest songs when you click on a specific one... :-( –  Tom Wijsman Aug 27 '10 at 8:31
I'm quite sure that it can do song recommendations with playlists too. –  JFW Aug 27 '10 at 10:04
Oh sorry, I meant something that would recommend new songs for me to buy –  Casebash Aug 29 '10 at 7:28
