Music yourself.

After quite a delay between announcement and reality, YouTube is launching YouTube Music in a field quite a bit more crowded than when it was first announced. The new service will offer songs with and without video, and offers an audio-only mode. Like Pandora, YouTube music will also allow for “stations” that can be fine tuned by the user. In what sounds a little like making lemonade out of lemons, YouTube Director of Product Development T. Jay Fowler said, “I’m excited about being an additive to the market, rather than just moving users through an ecosystem of apps.”
