The Listen Game - a game that is used to collect semantic annotations of music has a nice write-up in Dr. Dobbs.  The money quote:

"When my mom gets up in the morning and is like, 'I need some energy to go jogging,' she has no clue what title or artist is going to help her with that," said Gert Lanckriet, the electrical engineering professor overseeing the project.

What Lanckriet's mom needs is a "Google for music" -" a search engine for music that lets you type in regular words like "high energy instrumental with piano, " "funky guitar solos" or "upbeat music with female vocals, " and get songs in return.



I have to admit, I've never been able to get that site to load. On Firefox and IE, it always just says "Loading Java Applet..." for as long as I leave the window open.
