Best Internet Thing I Learned About this Weekend

Songerize. Type in a song title and artist and it streams it, just like that.

That's just a picture, but really, you should be able to embed it.

Here's how my first free-association string of song searches went (I can't explain why "Jump" by the Pointer Sisters was the first song I thought to look for. It just was.)

"Jump" by the Pointer Sisters = Found it
"Jump" by Van Halen = Found it
"Jumo" by Kriss Kross = Did not find it
"Jump" by Kriss Kross = Did not find it
"Jump" by Kris Kross = Found it
"Jump" by House of Pain = Found it
"Jump Around" by House of Pain = Found it
"Around the Way Girl" by LL Cool J = Found it
"'Round Midnight" by Thelonious Monk = Found it
"Girl" by the Papas Fritas = Did not find it
"Girl You Know It's True" by Milli Vanilli = Found it
"Midnight Train to Georgia" by Gladys Knight = Found it
"Decision at Midnight" by the Toasters = Found it (holy cow)
"Steady Mobbin'" by Ice Cube = Totally found it.
"Pump up the Volume" by MARRS = Found it
"Girl You Have No Faith in Medicine" by the White Stripes = Found it
"Red Bowling Ball Ruth" by the White Stripes = Did Not Found it
"Pills" by Bo Diddley = Found it, but what in the world version is this one?
"Pills" by New York Dolls = Found it
"Trash" by New York Dolls = Found it
"TV Eye" by Iggy and the Stooges = Did not find it
"TV Eye" by Iggy = Found it
"Lust for Life" by Iggy = Found it
"Born Slippy" by Underworld = Found it, but it was a weird remix
"Born Slippery" by Underworld = Did not find (good.)
"See the Trouble" by Black Legend = Surprise, surprise, totally found it.
"La Tacha" by Factor X = I was getting to confident in this website, did not find.

I'm pretty impressed. What do you think of it?

I'm surprised at how well it handled the few jazz songs I requested.

Totally rad. For some reason the first song that came to my head was "We built this City" by Jefferson Starship. I couln't remember the name of the band so I just put the title in and a horible high school choir rendition of the song came up. So- I would recommend putting in the artists name to avoid this tragic mistake!
