This really needs to be added. I'm trying to get the Sabaton song "Fields of Verdun" on my thumbs up for my rock station. Pandora won't play it even though it's in the catalog. I can play it on demand, but it just won't come up on my station. I've taken drastic measures. I've change the seed for the station to just Sabaton and, eventually, just that song. I now play it on Artist Only mode. Other than their songs that I have thumbed up, I thumb down every song. I'm at the point where it will now only play my ~9 thumbed up songs and a couple of randoms before telling me there's no more music. Just let me add a song to my thumbs up and, when added, let the algo detect "hey, he likes this song, I should play it once in awhile!" And on that note, songs that I use as seeds are songs that I like. As it stands, Pandora does not play seed songs, only similar songs. That's a huge oversight and needs to be fixed. If the solution is to "just make a playlist," I've got news for you. I can do that on Spotify with a larger catalog. Pandora's strength is its radio feature. Playlists are a good side-gig for when I want specific songs, but they shouldn't be the main feature.
