The Green Children Foundation

I came across this "foundation" recently but know little about it. However, it appears to have some connection with Professor Muhammad Yunus, winner of the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize.

From their "About Us" :


Milla Sunde and Tom Bevan established The Green Children Foundation to support microcredit, education and healthcare. In 2006, The Green Children shot a music video in Bangladesh to celebrate the work of Professor Muhammad Yunus, the father of microcredit and founder of The Grameen Bank.

Think of a song, now play it with Songerize


Yes, that's right, just think of your favorite song or perhaps an obscure one, there is a good chance that Songerize will play it. Of course you also need to known the artist, but that shouldn't be too difficult. However, if you really don't know the artist AND the song title, then just enter what you do know. You aren't guarantee to get the song you were thinking about, but then what the heck, you just found a new song.

Songerize is powered by seeqpod.com, but without the hassle. You can sign up for seeqpod.com and expand your experience, but for me Songerize works well enough and is as simple as type title and play.

BTW, Songerize doesn't just do music. It also can access podcasts.

Enjoy!

P.S. an update on finding obscure songs. Well, it looks like my taste in music is a bit left field. A couple of my favorite artists were not found. Mark Thunderwolf and the groups Maske and Outback did not return any results. So, I guess I will need to be a bit more "main stream". There are probably worse things I could do.

Update: Looks like Songerize does not implement seeqpod correctly, since when I went directly there I was able to find the songs by Outback. The others? Well, still out in left field.
