Are there anymore sites like songfacts out there


Recommended Posts

Hey Tom & welcome to the boards. I used to post at Rolling Stone with trivial stuff; until some other guy decided it wasn't cool, so I told him "Hey man, your not Mick, so you can't like own Rolling Stone" or the name. That website is nothing but pure $%#@ now.

Anyways, apart from Song Facts, there's a few good sites that are specific to Movies, Games, Sports, Marriage, Pregnancy, Medication, etc. etc. It all depends on which catagory you're interested in.

The reason why I ask is that I'm trying to get a fellow programmer to program me a program that spits out some "off the wall" facts about the song/artist while the music plays along with the standard bio, discography, album art, etc.

It makes music far more interesting if this info displays on the visualization screen, questions could pop up at the beginning of the song, then the answer could show up at the end. "Did you know..." facts can fill the middle portion along with the usual bio and discography info. Alot like what's displayed at movie theatres before a movie is played or like what Music Choice (Digital Cable TV Music Channels) displays while the music plays.

So obviously I would need sites that keeps a database of the info all organized by artist/title/album and such in order for the program to work properly.

Songfact.com seems to be the only one that organizes the "off the wall" facts...glad there is a site like this on the web...but its unfortunate that its the only one of its kind...movies and actors are "out in the cold" on this.

I believe, if I'm not mistaken, "Real Player" or 'Winamp' has a downloadable script via plug-in, which is capable of this as you describe in your post.

Damn straight :rockon: Glad to hear you like it here also, it's a pretty solid site, filled with interesting factoids regarding song, posted by people who know & understand "Real Music".

This site ownz over all other song message boards, especially those musically-illiterate n00bs at Rolling Stone & MTV.com :doh:

For the 5th time in your thread.. IMDB!!!!
