Shazam's Music Explorer Database=Cool

Shazam is the very popular service for several smartphones and other devices and that will quickly identify a song (artist, track title, etc) from millions of songs in their database. Simply point the phone at a speaker and in about 10 seconds the answer appears.

What often goes unnoticed is Shazam's searchable music database that contains data about over 8 million tracks. It's definitely worth a look. You can also take a peak at what tracks are currently being 'tagged' by users. Shazam also provides charts of the most popular tracks. Archives are also available. Here's a look at what the artist page for No Doubt looks like.

Perhaps the 'coolest' web site feature is the Music Explorer. It's a very 'social'.

Music Explorer is powered and updated by the real iDing activities of over 20 million users and provides you with a diversity of tracks or artists you might be interested in, based on the starting point of your journey.

Explorer gives you this as a 'map' of related artists, tracks or users based on how many other members have tagged these as well as your original track or artist.
