TinySong – the musical equivalent of TinyURL, and dead useful, too

tiny-song.jpgI’ve just been informed about TinySong, which has quickly been added to my bookmarks list for those occasions when you really need to hear a song but can’t be bothered downloading it/YouTubing it/waiting endlessly on Last.fm for it to play.

It’s being marketed as the musical version of TinyURL, that site which shortens lengthy URLs, and is remarkably simple to use. Just type in the song you want to send your friend, and it will give you a TinySong URL for that particular track. There’s no need to download a program to play it, it streams the track flawlessly using Grooveshark Lite. I tested it with some of my favourite songs, which the service thankfully had on offer. Nothing like some early morning gloom from The Smiths to brighten your mood!
