Music mix sharing site 8tracks now has an 8tracks API to search and play mix tapes. Developers can access the mixes, which each contain at least 8 tracks, by tag, simple search, popularity, those added recently, or randomly. The site announced its API at the recent Music Hack Day Boston.
Isn't it annoying when people get the words of a song wrong and totally miss the meaning? Or, ever wondered what the artist is actually trying to say in his/her intricate piece of musical wordplay? Well, SongMeanings is probably just the service you're looking for. It's an entertainment platform that allows users to follow their favourite artists as well as search for song lyrics and meanings, hopefully getting to the real messages that those artists were trying to get across. The SongMeanings API allows developers to integrate this functionality with other applications.
Last.fm besides being one of the most popular online radio and music communities, also has one of the most popular online music APIs. Possibly the most popular. Each month we continue to see a variety of new music-themed mashups added to our directory built on the Last.fm API. In the first three weeks of this month alone there have been 5 more Last.fm mashups added. That means that out of 231 music mashups at least 84 use the Last.fm API. And not that developers don't have other options given that there are 44 music APIs to choose from.
