Single purpose API
Of the many APIs we published this week, twelve were highlighted on the blog by our team of writers. In this post, we’ll shine a spotlight on those twelve, which include the SongMeanings API. SongMeanings is a social entertainment platform that allows users to follow their favorite artist and search/ debate the underlying lyrical meaning of songs. The site boasts over 1,800,000 licensed tracks, all of which encourage their users to contribute any lyrics the site does not have. The SongMeanings API makes the database accessible to developers who can retrieve song meanings by song ID numbers. To learn more about the SongMeanings API visit the SongMeanings site as well as the SongMeanings API blog post.
