I'm known among my friends for having rather eclectic/unusual music tastes, mostly because I listen when I'm doing something else (coding usually) so I prefer not to have voices in my music because I find it distracting. I often find clips of music I'd like to hear in odd places, and it's often uncredited which makes it hard to track down the artist. Basically I'm looking for a site which can help me identify the artist of a random piece of music and/or make suggestions for music I'd like.
As an example, I was watching a video demo of the new HTC Hero yesterday, and the background music was really very nice. I've scoured the internet and found several comments asking for the song's details, but none have answers (one reply said he had tried Shazam on it but was unsuccessful). It's likely the song was made specifically for the commercials, which is why it would also be good if i could get recommendations for similar music (though the original piece must still have an artist, uncredited or otherwise). Even just a genre would be helpful.
Thanks all, Ehtyar.
