Westbam’s music is still cool, sometimes. Well I am actually one of the old Westbam fans. I think it was 1989 when a friend of mine and me we were always going to all of the Westbam parties. The first one, we went to, was in Berlin’s UFO.
Anyway, I was just listening to some mix of him, I think it was "Terminator" and there was a sample of some other song in it, I don’t know exactly from which song. So I just thought why not simply right-click this sample and select "goto original song". Yeah, you just need the right software for it.
So I opened the song. From online it downloaded all the info about this song. Still while playing it started rendering the view of the song. There you saw all the samples and their links to the original songs (my standard view). I clicked the sample and got straight to the song. Then I chose the fade mode and the new song faded in as if Westbam had mixed it. Way cool. Since this song also has the backlink (which means it also shows which songs use samples from it) I can fade back to Westbam again. That’s what I like.
You probably want to know which software it is that does all that, ha?
A while later …
Ok, linked songs are reality. Now the next cool thing this software does (actually this feature is less cool, then the linked songs) is that it lets me search the songs for the lyrics. Today I was listening to La oreja de Van Gogh, I really like their songs! Later I had this piece of lyrics in my mind "me gustaría montar un país contigo" for which I didn’t remember the song. So I searched for the text and it played this part right when it found just the one result, not even a second after I was half done typing (not as slow as Spotlight). Oops I had it a little wrong, it’s "me gustaría inventar un país contigo" from the song Geografía.
