It seems that a script is currently sold that powers websites like Seekmp3, MP3zy and others. Those websites are mp3 search engines that all use the same Seeqpod database to provide users with mp3 findings. The question however is why someone would want to use a copycat website instead of the original one especially if the original one offers way more options and functions?
All you can do on the clone websites is to enter an artist name or song name and search for it. You get search results that show found songs and you can play or download those songs. If you choose to play a song it is loaded in a new window with a very basic player.
Seeqpod on the other side offers a playlist of songs that you have selected, repeat, shuffle, skip songs, change the volume, share playlists with friends, a video search and a discovery mode. We will most likely see more of these websites pop up in the near future and they surely will get coverage on some websites.
Update: All services mentioned here are not available anymore. You can however make use of alternative services that provide you with a similar music experience. There is the free music hosting site Jamendo that artists and bands can use to distribute their music online and get the word out that they exist.
An alternative is to use a program like StreamWriter to record Internet Radio. Streamwriter makes available thousands of stations that you can listen to or download to your computer. What's interesting is that you can record multiple stations at a time. You are limited only by your bandwidth and the resources of your PC in this regard.
