Website of the Day: 8tracks

Being able to upload MP3s online and create your own playlists in a community-type website is great for a variety of reasons. One — you can access your favorite tunes online (from anywhere), two — you can hear new tunes by checking other people's playlists, and three — you can easily share your playlist with friends and family. The site that started it all, Muxtape, became unavailable last August after legal disputes with the RIAA, but thankfully an impressive site called 8tracks has debuted a similar (if yet better) online music service.

To listen to playlists, you don't need to sign-up (for a free account), but to upload your own songs, you will need to create a profile. You can create a mix containing about 8 songs (hence the name), personalize it with cool art and a description, and then embed it on your blog.
