i  think it would be cool if DDG would use raphosdy, mp3bear, or grooveshark to do this. Type in a song like "get away with murder" and it would come up and you could play it right off the search engine. =) i would use this feature alot.

Google used to do this, but I don't think they do it anymore.

Yeah, I was really mad when google dumped this feature.
Just a little thing like the video player would be great!

This reminded me how much I wanted something like "guitar tab for some thing" to search on ultimateguitar.com and list a few of the tabs there. Don't actually show any tabs, just list and link them.
I did notice the top result did go to search results on UG, but I think parsing the results from that page should be fairly easy.
I think there are similar sites that would work for "guitar music" or "banjo tab", etc.

We have !bangs for tabs, though we could do them in-line like lyrics. The bottleneck is focusing on the scraping, so if anyone wants to work on that just let me know.

Why did Google discontinue the sound thing?

I've thought about it a little via soundcloud.

This is bizarre, can't bother to log in as I already am logged in in another tab >(

I'll do some frontend work if you'd like, but unless the backend is django I can't help there.


Does soundcloud already have a music player?

Google did it with Lala.com until Apple bought out Lala and closed them down.
