Google Find: Music Search Results

Sorry if this is common knowledge...but I just came across it.

Try going to google, and searching for an artist, like Garth Brooks. Notice what the first result is?

It's a pseudo site, generated by google, that shows you:

  • The artist photo
  • A list of each CD created by the artist
  • The ability to view each track on the CD
  • Links to: buy the CD, read reviews, find lyrics, etc.
  • The data is sorted by popularity, but can be sorted by release date

It's a great example of providing a domain specific (music in this case) set of search results, without interfering with your web regular results.

I know this also works for movies and the weather -- I wonder what other search results like are implemented?
