Create playlists for events democratically using SongVote

No, it's not another RSS mix-up. The reason you're seeing an Ellen-related screenshot is because that happens to be the playlist vote that I stumbled onto in SongVote. It's all quite straightforward, really; SongVote lets you create a topic or an event ("Shloime's Bar Mitzvah") and then have people vote on what music they'd like to hear at the event. You can either vote for one of the songs...

CEO: Spotify will launch in the U.S. later this year

Our main man Nik Fletcher loves Spotify -- along with just about everyone else on the Continent who has access to the awesome streaming music service. And while just a few days ago it was unclear whether Spotify would ever make the trek across the Atlantic, today we've got a definite answer. Spotify CEO Daniel Ek has now said that it's coming later this year to the U.S. In an interview with...

YouTube's new Music Discovery Project and Playlist Creation Tool

YouTube has been a favorite place for music fans to watch and listen to music videos for a long time now. Along with official music videos, there are all sorts of treasures to be found, particularly when it comes to obscure live performances. It looks like YouTube is embracing the fact that it is increasingly being used as a music service, and has launched a new project called the Music Discovery...

MySpace replaces embedded imeem playlists with ringtone ads

To say that the imeem purchase by MySpace has been messy would be a bit of a gross understatement. Its primary purpose -- creating playlists -- was broken by its transition to MySpace's ownership and website. Right now imeem users are basically and functionally screwed: imeem currently does... well, nothing. Well, until today that is: now imeem playlists display ringtone ads. You could almost...

TubeRadio.fm turns YouTube into a powerful music player

Using YouTube to listen to music is nothing new. Search for a song you want to hear, and you're very likely to find it, even if there's no official music video. YouTube isn't built to listen to music though, and that's where TubeRadio.fm comes in. It's a slick music player that lets you create playlists from YouTube, and can even find entire albums at once, using track listings and album art from...

BPM Analyzer gives you the tempo of all of your MP3s

Creating playlists can be tedious, and every bit of information can help. While some people maintain the ID3 tags in their MP3 files in excruciating detail, others (like me) can't seem to find the time. But when it comes to finding the tempo, no amount of manual ID3 tag maintenance will help. If you're trying to put together a playlist that contains songs that are a similar speed, knowing the...

Hype Machine + Muxtape = HypeTape

HypeTape is a new site that combines the simple streaming-playlist abilities of the old MuxTape with the music discovery powers of The Hype Machine. In case you're not familiar, The Hype Machine indexes posts from top music blogs, allowing you to find and read about new music with ease. Although HypeTape doesn't actually use Hype Machine search results, and isn't affiliated with either Muxtape...

Mixtape.me is the latest, greatest mp3 playlist site

I've lost count of the times new audio playlist sites have popped up and been compared to the heyday of Muxtape. Comparisons are inevitable, though, when we talk about the latest -- and possibly the greatest -- in a long chain of mixtape sites that never quite seem to catch on: Mixtape.me. It grabs music from around the web, notably from Seeqpod, and does a great job of letting you make and browse...

Playlist.io: store music in the cloud with Drop.io

Drop.io is known for having one of the best, most simple file storage interfaces out there. They've already expanded into file sending (usend.io) and tweeting (tweet.io), and music playlists are the next thing on the hit list. Enter playlist.io. It gives you 102mb of space to upload audio files into a playlist that you can play or redownload from anywhere. Once your music is uploaded, you can...

Ffffoundtape is the new Muxtape, Ffffound-style

The photo-bookmarking and discovery site Ffffound still has of the most sought-after invitations online, and it's been around for quite a while. Now there's a sister-site called Ffffoundtape that's trying to apply the Ffffound approach in the world of mp3s. To add an mp3 to Fffoundtape, you can either enter its URL at the site or grab a bookmarklet and click it when your browser is open to an...

YouTubeReloaded is a quick and easy way to generate YouTube playlists to embed in your own site. It features a few different skins, the ability to add a logo, and a number of ways to get playlists. Sure, you could just paste video URLs yourself for a custom playlist, but YouTubeReloaded also offers search-based and predefined options you can use to generate a playlist automatically. The...

Muxtape is back, with a little help from some friends

I have fond memories of Muxtape, which briefly reigned last year as the online music sharing method of choice for hipsters everywhere. Well, Muxtape is finally back, after shutting down for a while due to problems landing an affordable licensing deal for the music that was getting passed around on the service. It's a different kind of service now, although the interface looks the same. Now...

Moody - song tagger and iTunes playlist generator (Mac)

One of the things that technology should be able to help us with is to figure out what we really want, and give it to us. While that may sound like a tall order when you think about the entirety of it, when applied to specific scenarios, it makes sense. For example, Amazon can give you some pretty good ideas about books you might like to read based on your previous buying habits. Along with book...

The Filter for iTunes: "Better than shuffle"

The Filter boasts quite a lot. Its tagline is "creates perfect playlists from your iTunes library," and its web site says it's "better than your shuffle button!" What The Filter is is a plugin for iTunes (Windows version only for now, Mac coming soon) that generates playlists when you select a few songs and click on the big black "F" button. Like many programs, The Filter claims to excel at...
