Oh, I see what you mean @andywhatley. Thanks for the clarification. 👍🏻

I'd recommend visiting our Feature Request board with this suggestion. You can either post a new message for this idea or expand on the current idea for live version here: Exclude Live Performance Versions of Songs

Thanks for being part of community! 🎧

No cover songs

Local Performer

Is there an option to disable cover songs? For example, I like Garth Brooks and would like to hear his songs, but not his songs being played/covered by "Books Jefferson"... I feel like if I click the thumbs down for Brooks Jefferson, it will also think I dont like Garth Brooks songs, since they are very similar...

@jaredbird I moved your post to this thread since you have a similar question.

We don't currently have the option to filter out certain versions of tracks, such as covers or live recordings on Pandora stations.

However, if you Thumb Down a cover or remixed version of a song, you will not hear that version again on the station you're listening to. This will not keep the studio version of that track from playing and doesn't necessarily mean that you will no longer hear other songs by that artist. As always, you should use your Thumb ratings freely to tell Pandora what you want and don't want to hear.

In the meantime, make sure to give this existing feature request a ❤️ to express your interest in getting it added to the service as well: Exclude Live Performance/Remixed Versions of Songs

Hope this helps! 😁

Is there a way to request alternate sources of a song?

Local Performer

This is basically an audio engineering issue, but I don't know what to do about it. 

On my early jazz station, I get a lot of Billie Holiday.  That's great because I love her.   However, I started primarily getting her music from this album in the past few weeks:

What a Little Moonlight Can Do - Remastered

Example song:  https://pandora.app.link/ufJpXAM5J8

This remaster album is AWFUL. Someone added a ton of reverb to it for reasons I cannot fathom.  It is horrible to listen to and literally hurts my brain.   I don't want to thumbs down it because a) I'd have to thumbs down every single track played from this album individually and b) I like these songs, just not this AWFUL remastered version.    I'm pretty sure if I thumbs down them, it will take all of these songs off of my station, not just the ones from this album, since they are all the same songs, just with different audio mixing. 

But I just can't stand listening to it.  They come up very frequently as well. This is unbearable.  How can I request to get these songs from a different compilation album?

Re: Downvoting remixed versions of songs

Local Performer

But then if you thumbs down two live versions of the same artist you will stop hearing the artist completely. This could create a problem if you still like the artist but can't stand live versions like me.

@DiamondBoy32 Thumbing down the live versions of various tracks will not prevent that artist from playing again on your station. 

Just make sure you are also consistently thumbing up the studio versions of their tracks that you like as well when they play.

Additionally, I do see you are upgraded to Pandora Premium - with this level of subscription you can always create your own customized playlists where you can pick and choose what songs you want to hear in your listening session. Going this route will allow you only select studio versions of tracks, and leave out the live versions you don't actually want to hear.

Let me know if you'd like me to send over some instructions on how to create customized playlists.

Hope this helps!

Re: Downvoting remixed versions of songs

Local Performer

In another thread about how to remove a specific artist from a station the moderator said to thumb down 2 of the artists songs... Confused??

I don't want to make my own playlist that's too much work and boring since you now know every song that will play. Even though most of your stations pretty much end up being like a playlist as they repeat the same songs over and over.

@DiamondBoy32 I am not sure where that was said, however I can confirm that thumbing down 2 tracks by the same artist will not prevent them from playing again on that same station.

It will require you to give a consistent thumbs down to all songs that play by a single artist in order to prevent them from playing again on that station. 

Hope this helps clarify.

Re: What's your like/dislike ratio? Mine's 229/1028 = 0.22.

Local Performer

I thumb down every live song that comes on, and Pandora can't seem to understand that I don't want to listen to live music on the radio.

 

I can't figure out where to find all my thumbed down songs, though. I would have to go through every single station and look, and that just isn't happening.

@ghostofmybrain Nice to see you around the Community. 👋🏽

Finding your thumbed down tracks:

To locate your thumbed down tracks on a computer:

  • Click on the name of the station you'd like to view. If the station is not available on your Now Playing page, click on the My Collection button first, sort your collection by Stations, and then select the name of the station you'd like to edit.

This will take you to a page which shows you information about your personalized station.

You can view/edit your Thumbed up or Thumbed down tracks, by scrolling down to the Thumb History of the station's page. By default, this section will show your Thumbed up tracks first. If you'd like to see your Thumbed down tracks, click on the Thumbs down icon.

To locate your thumbed down tracks on a mobile device:

  1. From My Collection, visit your station list.
  2. Tap on the name of the station you'd like to view.
    • If you're a Pandora Premium subscriber, this will take you directly to the station's backstage page.
    • If you're a free listener or Pandora Plus subscriber, this will start your station, so tap either the Thumb or small "i" icon in the upper right corner of your screen to continue to the station's backstage page.
  3. Scroll down to either your Thumbed Down Songs.

Hope this helps! 😁
