If you’re like most of us, certain artists will be inextricably linked to memories of various points of your life. Case in point: painting your parent’s fence in high school (The Smiths on the Walkman), studying abroad in college (Björk on your MP3 player), and a party at your new house (Cee Lo, Roy Orbison, Adele, and Dolly Parton taking eclectic turns on the computer playlist). If music feeds the soul, Yahoo! Music aims to keep it full.
