As you've probably noticed, the 8 Ball Software Music Archive, which hosted our
members' access to songs for so many years, has gone the way of the dinosaur!
So how can our members listen to the great music? We have upgraded our site and our
data to link with the MusicBrainz music community database.
Now every Top 40 song in
our charts has a link to it's track in MusicBrainz. While MusicBrainz does not
directly host the music, visitors who have catalogued their own music collection
with MusicBrainz will be able to pull together complete Top 40 chart playlists from
their own local music.
We are also in planning for a series of Top 40 countdown internet radio stations that will count down the 40 top songs
of any week in our charts. Watch this space for further developments!
