When Google Talk users opt in to Music Trends, we’ll capture information about the music they’re listening to from their music player. We then anonymize the information and add each musical vote to our Music Trends page. The more users that are opted in, and the more music they listen to, the more accurately the Music Trends page will reflect the world’s musical tastes.
You can select different charts based on music style, like “Blues”, “Folk” or “Heavy Metal.” For example, the current week’s top 5 for “Alternative” is:
Every song and artist is linked and takes you to the respective Google Music page, which shows the song album, lyrics, and a couple of related links (like the artist’s website). And, of course, some Google ads.
