TinySong is like TinyURL for music.

A service I use often is TinyURL. It takes any long web address and makes a permanent short version of it. It’s very useful for a service like Twitter where each message you type is constrained to 140 characters. It’s also a nice thing to do when your emailing someone a URL from Expedia or Amazon where sometimes URLs can extend three or more lines long.

This morning I discovered tinySONG.com. You search for a song and then it gives you a small URL for it. When your friend clicks it the song opens at Grooveshark.com and plays. Here’s an example:

This one is dedicated to George Bush:

Of course this is a way for Grooveshark to get people using their music service but as you see there is no sign in or anything happening before your song plays so it’s an enjoyable experience.

As I type this blog post Im looking at the Grooveshark website and you know what? It’s an interesting site and music model. It seems tinySONG has worked in getting my eyes focused over there. As a user you can get credits for free music by making recommendations and has a label you can earn royalties. Have you used Grooveshark? What you think of it?

So go ahead… post some TinySong urls in the comments.
