I’ve been playing around with Songza, a new, closed beta, music search engine that lets you create playlists on-the-fly.
Here’s how it works
Enter in a band or song name and Songza returns a list of found music files – For everything I search for it gave me back items found on YouTube, mostly live stuff. You can then perform actions such as playing the song, rating it, adding it to a playlist, grabbing the embed code etc. There is no way to create an account yet, but your playlists will be there for you when you return, ala cookies.
It is a really cool site and I am actually quite excited to see what direction they take this thing. Especially seeing that there are endless possibilities with online music.
Songza was developed by Humanized, Inc., a Chicago based software development company.
Note: I tried adding their embed code to this post, but it really messed up the layout. I am sure it something I am doing in my CSS.
