Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - If you love music, love hearing new artists or your old favorites.

The perfect music for any situation is just a free download away. You can have your own music concierge, because there's an app for that.

It's Tuesday afternoon and you're working.

It's Wednesday night. You're looking to explore obscure sounds.

Thursday evening and you're cooking or working out.

Friday night and you're at a sweaty dance party.

The free app Songza has the perfect playlists for all that and much more!

It's an internet music streaming app; a lot like Pandora.

But something that sets it apart? Its playlists are made by music experts. They've put together the perfect music based on the time of day, how you're feeling or what you're doing.

Once you pick the day and what you want to play music for: It's Thursday afternoon, I'm at work and want to work to a beat… Then, I choose from a category: Blissfully chill indie beats, head-nodding hip hop, uplifting drum n bass, modern lounge groove or chill dub step.

If I click on the blissfully chill, I get options for playlists. I'll choose chill wave and hear. You can skip songs you don't like. Songza has a six-song skip limit.

From the time you wake up, work out, work, chill out, entertain or sleep, Songza has the music to go along with your life.

Another great feature: There are no audio advertisements. There are ads on the site, and there's no limit to how many songs you can listen to.
