If you're still looking for music to listen to, you might want to try Tubalr (which is pronounced tuba-ler apparently). Very simple - whack in the name of an artist or band, and the resource will find YouTube videos from them, or which are similar to their music. You can then create a playlist and listen along.
If you like Spotify, but you don't like the choice of radio tracks they provide you with, try Echofiapp. Basically you open up Spotify, go to the app (on a webpage, nothing to install), and type in your favourite musical person, band etc. Echofiapp then works directly with Spotify and pulls up interesting tracks for you to listen to. You like like tracks, skip, ban them or pause them. It's not bad - I've been listening to it all morning and there's only a couple of tracks that I've disliked enough not to listen to. Since it's free and nothing to install - if you use Spotify, give it a shot.
Music Videos, Lyrics, Playlists.The Swedish Company Munax today announced the launch of its new Music Service, Melodytubes. Melodytubes is a search engine with millions of indexed
song texts which may be connected
to any number of music sources, regardless if the music is stored on servers on
the local area network or on the internet.
With Melodytubes, music
play & search is taken to the next level. Just enter a combination of
anything you can remember – a string of lyrics, any part of the artist’s name,
or any part of the song title – to instantly find the song you are looking for.
Melodytubes’s extensive lyrics index and sophisticated song matching algorithms
yield results so uncannily accurate that you will feel as if it has read your
shuffler is a music discovery site based on blogs. Taken from the site: "Shuffler aggregates music from around the web by genre. So if you go to our home page you will see a list of channels. They are like radio channels but divided by genre. When you click on a channel we send you to a blog post and start playing one of the songs mentioned on that post. If you don't like it you can skip ahead or pick another channel from the shuffler bar on the top of the page. When the song ends, we send you to the next song on the next blog. Always on the same genre."
Need some background music for a YouTube video? Don't want to run foul of copyright laws? Take a look at Friendly
Music which lets you look for some music, listen to it and license the right to use it - for about $1.99. That's gotta be a snip!
Search, sing and share at cantanding.com. It basically grabs stuff from YouTube, and puts in the lyrics below. Neatly done, but doesn't strip out the original singer, so at best you're going to be singing in collaboration. Not exactly Karaoke.
I used to like Songza which let me create folders of music to listen to. Of course, when I discovered Spotify it went out the window, and I didn't go back. I thought they'd have problems, because they were pulling music data off YouTube, and YouTube doesn't like that. Hence the details in the email that I got today: "Regarding the original Songza, we are currently unable to use YouTube's
API, which allows you to search for and play any song on demand, but we
want to assure you we are doing everything we can to resolve this issue
and to have Songza back up and running asap. We will of course let you
know as soon as there are any new developments with Songza and
apologize for this inconvenience."
However, all is not lost - they have released two new free music streaming sites - Songza Radio and Songza sets. I would offer to give you the links, as they provided them to me in their email. Unfortunately, they don't work, as they just lead back to the main site which says nothing at all of any help. And besides - it's 'Available in the US only'.
Utterly pointless. Go away, close the company down and listen to Spotify instead, try out Spotiseek to find similar music to artists you like.
finetune. If you like Pandora and last.fm this might interest. Whack in the name of a musician or band and see what it pops up with. I've been listening for a couple of hours and it's about a 50% 'yes, really nice' 25% 'ok, I can cope with this' and 25% 'run away!'
