Songza – Search engine for Music

Songza is a fantastic service that I discovered only yesterday. Not sure how I missed this one, but if you aren’t quite satisfied with the new rules placed on Pandora or Last.fm, then you will really like this!

Songza is the brainchild of 23-year-old Aza Raskin — the president of Chicago-based software company Humanized, Inc., and the son of Apple Macintosh founder Jef Raskin. Over the course of a month, he and Humanized’s Web/Systems Architect Scott Robbin worked weekends to bring the idea to life. The site launched on November 8, 2007 and instantly generated significant buzz around the world. Hundreds of bloggers and news writers have praised its elegant user interface, beautiful design, and all-around utility.

Like all good ideas, both the concept and design came to Aza while he was in the shower.

Songza - Music Search Engine
Songza lets you search your favorite artists or songs and gives you the ability to actually listen to it right there (imagine that!). For each individual tune, it let’s you share, watch the YouTube video, rate it, and add to playlist along with a few other options. The playlist is saved for when you stop by the website at another time.. no registration required!

I just tried to embed the player on this post, but it totally distorted my page. Maybe they’ll fix that soon? It’s still in beta, so keep that in mind! Overall, I think this is a great service and I’m extremely happy that I can now search for a favorite song and listen on demand.

About Pete

This is my blog, my way. There's a bit of everything in it, most of which I find interesting one way or another. I always keep my eye on gadgets, technology, software, site scripts, web site designs, templates, wordpress themes, wordpress in general, along with a whole barrage of other things we find here on the internet. UPDATE: My life has changed in so many ways since beginning this blog seemingly so many years ago. A majority of the history here is in technology (pre-2014) and now it's more about life. A more focused journey of myself and the ride we're all on. So if you like a little bit of this and that, then hopefully you'll enjoy the new focus here at my blog. :-)
