Guruji, the Indian search engine, recently launched its own Music Search.
"Any Indian Song.
Name it. We'll play it"
From Guruji blog,
"Guruji Music Search – Guruji Music Search is a one stop shop for all Music lovers searching for Music on the Web. Our Music Index (enriched by songs crawled from all over from the web) has songs ranging from 1932 till 2008, across languages. Guruji Music Search is an attempt to allow users to search for songs in the fastest and easiest way possible. You can search for a song by the song’s words, singers, movie/album, actors, music directors and so on…"
I decided to give it a try.
I started with Bhakta Kuchelan released in 1960s. Yup, it was there. But a search for Jeevitha Nowka(mostly 1950s) didn't return the one I asked for. It gave a Telugu film but I was searching for a Malayalam one.
Over to Tamil, I checked for my fav one, Thiruvilayadal(1965). It's there, but they have got only one song.
And Hindi. My search for Anarkali (1953) was fruitful. They had all the songs!
Guruji indexes most of the Indian music sites like musicindiaonline.com, humma.com, raaga.com, smashhits.com and the rest. The beauty of the service is that they are able to find the same ones from different sites and put it together. Also, they have the details of the songs like the cast, lyricist, singer etc. In one line, Guruji Music Search is the best Indian music repository.
Well, talking about copyrights. They have the standard disclaimer,
"Guruji.com indexes third party websites and does not have control over, nor any liability for the content of such third party websites. If you believe that any of the search results above, link to content that infringes your copyright, please contact us."
In the wake of MPAA suing and winning against websites that link to movies, Guruji might soon face some litigation. Till then, let's enjoy the great search facility.
