    Google music search was released just a few days ago:

    I find it extremely useful, to be honest with you.

    For instance, you can Google any lyrics, for example, "She could take my heart and soul, she could take my hand to hold."
    http://www.google.com/search?q=she+could+take+my+heart+and+soul+she+could+take+my+hand+to+hold
    And it shows me right there, as the very first result, the name of the song and artist, and gives me a link where I can listen to the whole song for free without any registration. (But if you go to listen to the song a second time you only get a 30 second preview.)

    Or maybe your friend told you about this awesome song, so you Google it, "the mayfield four eden (turn the page)."
    http://www.google.com/search?q=the+mayfield+four+eden+(turn+the+page)
    Bam! You can listen to it!

    You can type in the name of an album or artist and it'll show their top songs and you can play them, too.

    It's very useful. What do you guys think of it?

    I think it is nice and useful too. Also, I am interested in how Google will take it one-step further.

    Is there any special way for this to appear because all I'm getting is what I used to get when I search for lyrics. I'm in Australia if it makes any difference.

    EDIT: ah...well I tried to listen to a song via on lala.com's website and it gives me a 'not available internationally' message. Dammit.
