Lens Building with FoxyTunes (a cool free little tool)

Posted on May 11 2008

You know when you build a lens and you scoot around the web finding links, flickr pictures, youtube videos, amazon products, etc etc etc….?FoxyTunes Lens Building

Well I found a site recently called  It’s basically a search engine all about music. So you’re at FoxyTunes, you type in a band name or a song or album or whatever, and it creates a page for you pulling in the song videos from youtube, pictures of the band from flickr, lyrics of the songs from yahoo, their official site and myspace page, an intro from Wikipedia, and the band’s albums from Amazon. And some other useful stuff too.

It’s really pretty cool.

Here is an example:

You could easily create a lens about your favourite bands or artists, and use this FoxyTunes tool to fill in the rest of the modules. Because you’re able to see everything at a glance. Your lens will be mostly useless though unless you write some of your own thoughts on it too. What YOU think of the band, and why you like their music.

Havesome fun and

Lewis 🙂

    Lewis — is pretty cool how it builds a page with modular-type information. Are those pages ‘already’ built or are they done ‘on-the-fly’ ?

  4. MrLewisSmile says:

    @Sandy – it should be a lot easier and FASTER to make music lenses, now!

    @Pat – That’s ok 🙂

    @Julie – They are created ‘on the fly’. So you type something in, it then goes and gets all the info from around the web. Which may well be why I’ve nevr ever ever found a foxytunes page in a search result. Squidoo can fix this for us 🙂
