Script Request: Second Hand Songs (Cover songs)

Post by Sammy20 » Mon Feb 15, 2010 10:13 pm

http://www.secondhandsongs.com/

Would like to see a script that searches second hand songs site for any covers that the song your listening to has. Don't really know how this information will show up in MM (maybe on a sidebar, popup or menu item)

Sorry if I sound vague but I would actually really like a script that could do this. Just don't know how to properly explain it... Also, is OK to request scripts here?

I think you've mistaken the use of "Cover" here, Trix. In this case, it means when someone has re-recorded a song made famous by someone else. Like if an artist from today were to record and release a song originally done by Elvis.

Ah yes, so I have! :oops: I could probably add it to "MonkeyRok" as an external panel though! :lol:

That you could, Trix. On the subject of covers/samples, another site similar in nature would be WhoSampled which provides information about samples and extends to full blown covers. I think Second Hand Songs may touch on samples as well... though I only poked around the site for a couple minutes, but I seem to recall seeing something about samples.

I've just been messing around on whosampled.com as well.
A script that could look up matches on that site with tracks you have in your library would be.......well words do not explain how good that would be.
like musicip tagger and discog tagger.
PLEASE :)
another one of that ilk would be riddimbase.org which will let you find out the particular "riddim" that a reggae track is based on.
Ok I realise that is pretty specific but thought I'd mention it:)
