Fresh Hot 100: an App for Only the Most Recent Chart Toppers
I check Billboard's Hot 100 chart each Thursday to keep my playlist up-to-date. It was time consuming, however. Here were the steps I'd go through:
- Go through entire list searching for new songs since previous list
- Copy new song's title and artist
- Paste into GrooveShark, listen to it, and add it to my playlist if I liked it
Obviously, step 1 takes the longest. What I really want is just a list of the songs that weren't on the list last week. That's where Fresh Hot 100 comes in. It's a simple web app I created that just displays the songs that are new to the Hot 100 list since the last time you visited. Clicking on a song opens a Grooveshark search in a new tab. It's not the prettiest web site, but give it a try and let me know what you think.
