Despite being a video service YouTube is great for finding music–if you have the patience to sort through the garbage. Cantio does the heavy lifting for you and turns YouTube into a playlist-friendly jukebox.
Visit Cantio as a guest and you can search for music to your heart’s content. Sign up for a free account and you can create playlists, watch the videos accompanying the music, and pull up additional artist info. In addition there is a Radio feature that seeks out songs similar to the one you’re currently listening to.
Cantio is a free web-based app; visit the link below to take it for a test drive.
Jason Fitzpatrick is warranty-voiding DIYer and all around geek. When he's not documenting mods and hacks he's doing his best to make sure a generation of college students graduate knowing they should put their pants on one leg at a time and go on to greatness, just like Bruce Dickinson. You can follow him on Google+ if you'd like.
