(Hypebot) – Songza.com is a music search engine that acts as a free internet jukebox. It locates songs posted on the net and lets you listen to them in their entirety and add them to playlists or blogs.
Choose the song or artist you wish and Songza will search and play it. Its all presented via a clutter-free design and transparent remote control (play, share, rate and add to playlist) The rating system lets users vote up or down on a song, which results in the whittling up or down of songs depending on their artistic or audio quality. "Add to playlist" enables users to create lists of their favorites and "Share" lets the send songs to friends, link to them, embed them on a website, or watch the video on YouTube. New features will be added in time.
Unlike KaZaa or Bit Torrent, Songza does not enable unauthorized downloads of digital music files; users can only listen to songs, not obtain copies. And unlike Last.fm or Rhapsody, Songza permits users to choose exactly the song or artist they want to hear, and does not require them to subscribe or pay for the service.
