MySpace restores Imeem playlists

A month after MySpace absorbed Imeem, it's allowing Imeem users to restore their playlists on MySpace Music.

I criticized MySpace for burying Imeem when it bought the company last month, but it looks like MySpace is finally making good on its promise to let Imeem users transfer their music.

Imeem users began receiving e-mails on Friday explaining that they could now import their old Imeem playlists to MySpace, turning them into MySpace playlists. All they have to do is log in to MySpace, enter the e-mail address they used for Imeem into this form, and their playlists should automatically be transferred to the new service.

Unfortunately, I didn't save any of my music on Imeem in playlist format. Instead, I simply uploaded a bunch of songs (mostly from bands I used to play with) onto my profile page and pointed people to that page. So the import process didn't work for me. Give it a try and let me know in comments if it works for you.
