Yahoo Music API

August 7th, 2008. Tagged: Music, yahoo, ydn

This was meant to be a longer posts with examples and such, but Jim Bumgardner said it and coded it better than I could :) He's been with Y!Music way longer than me and has done way cooler stuff.

As a front-end engineer for Yahoo! Music, I've always thought it would great if the web services we use to create the Y! Music pages were available to developers outside of Yahoo!, and, as of today, due to the herculean labors of our web services team, they are!

Full blog post and code examples are on the YDN (Yahoo! Developer Network) blog and the Music API docs are there too.

Could you come up with an idea of a mashup using music data like artists, songs, similarities? The APIs are here.
