SongCrate lets you search for any song, play it, create playlists, get the song’s lyrics, read all the info you need about the artist and then easily share it with all your friends.
SongCrate is not just another online music streaming service. This awesome site allows you to search for music, listen to it online and create crates (which is the site’s name for playlists…). SongCrate pulls music from both YouTube and SouldCloud so you can probably find any song you can think of on it. You can easily import your LastFM, Youtube or iTunes playlists or start creating new ones by searching for songs or by following friends (or strangers with a good musical taste) and peeking into their crates. You can save someone else’s crate and then filter only the good stuff and recreate the create as your own. But the thing that really makes SongCrate rise above its competition is the awesome added value you receive while using it.
The reason I liked SongCrate so much is because of the extras it provides you with. When you listen to a a song I highly recommend you to checkout the right column. On it you can find related songs, search for other songs, peek at the band bio’s, see their discography, purchase the song from different sources, and get current touring info. SongCrate was founded by the same people who brought us LYRICSnMUSIC, so naturally you can also get the lyrics to any song you play. All these features make the experience much more complete and you really feel that this service provides the answer to all of your musical craving needs.
Today everything is social, and the guys from SongCrate know it. That’s why they added a great social aspect to the site. Aside from the fact that you can follow friends and check out their crates, you can also add a collaborator to any of your crates and now both of you can add songs to that crate and edit it. another nice touch is the fact that you can also tag any of your “liked” songs as your current favorite, then it will show on your profile and define your current musical identity. There is NO software to install and it works on any device, mobile, tablet, desktop/laptop, game console, web TV etc. Did I mention that SongCrate is 100% free and does not have commercials? Give it a try, I have and I love it!
