Abstract We present here Good Vibrations, a tool for music tagging, exploration and discovery, shaped as a media player plugin, and intended for home users. The plugin allows the quick invention of concepts and properties that can be tagged to songs. After some hours of active tagging, the plugin starts automatically proposing the proper tags to the user, who is also allowed to correct them. The plugin generates playlists according to the user-defined concepts, and recommends related music either from the user's personal collection or from the Internet (through it's connection to Foafing the Music). The plugin runs, for the moment, in Nullsoft Winamp on Windows XP systems.
