LastVid is a service that couples the ever-widening collection of music videos that characterize YouTube with the search and discovery functionalities inherent to Last.fm, giving the user a tool for launching a stream of music videos that can last for as long as he wants.
Essentially, when you look up a song at the site you are presented with different performances of that particular piece. For example, by looking up “Pinball Wizard” I came across the legendary Woodstock performance, some promotional takes and some recent versions with Zak playing the drums. I was also presented with versions of the song by other performers than The Who. As you can imagine, Elton John’ version was right there after the rock titans’s version.
As well as providing the name or the band or the title of any given composition, the system makes for supplying tags that reflect your tastes such as “Alternative”, “Indie” and “Electric”. A list highlighting the most popular tags is provided on the main page.
To sum it up, this site will empower any music adept to come across official videos, live performances and covers in a single search. Whatever your favourite genre is, I am more than certain the site will have a couple of treats in store for you. Just check it out and see it for yourself.
