The world of music is not just where the phrase "mashup" originated, it is also one of the most popular types of web mashups. With over 40 music APIs to choose from, developers have created a wide range of music-related mashups, over 200 music mashups in our directory.
There's been some great new music mashups coming down the pipe lately. We'll highlight some of the better ones below, including a music search engine, local music events, lyrics lookup, a Spotify video playlist app (yes, there's a Spotify API) and a fun "name that tune" game.
