100 Million Songs I.D.ed on Verizon

Over 10 millionth Song ID applications have been downloaded by Verizon Wireless
phones. Song ID is a free application that lets users 
identify songs they hear  by holding their wireless phone up to
the source of music. Then the application finds the name and
artist in a few seconds. The top song IDed contains sex references and the "n" word.
Since Song ID was launched in May 2007, Verizon Wireless
customers have requested more than 100 million titles using Song ID.

Ruth, director of Digital Music at Verizon announced the milestones at
the Billboard Touring Conference and Awards, taking place this week in
New York City

Once a song is identified, Song ID determines whether the song is
available as a ringtone or ringback tone on VZW Tones or as a full
track on V CAST Music, then customers can immediately purchase that
song in any available format.

Over the past few months, the top 10
identified songs that have been downloaded as ringtones were:

o Whatever You Like (T.I.) which mentions "Last night sex was so wet, you're so tight. I'll gas up the jet for you tonight."
o Lollipop (L'il Wayne)
o Paper Planes (M.I.A.)
o Addicted (Saving Abel)
o Paralyzer (Finger Eleven)
o Independent (Webbie)
o I Luv Your Girl (The-Dream)
o Crank That and Tell'Em (Soulja Boy)
o Sexy Can I (Ray J featuring Yung Berg)
o Fall For You (Secondhand Serenade)

 And the top 10 songs identified, downloaded and purchased as ringback tones were:

o Whatever You Like (T.I)
o Addicted (Saving Abel)
o Paper Planes (M.I.A.)
o I Luv Your Girl (The-Dream)
o Fall for You (Secondhand Serenade)
o Lollipop (L'il Wayne)
o Apologize (Timbaland)
o I'm Yours (Jason Mraz)
o Suffocate (J. Holiday)
o Independent (Webbie)

 V CAST Song ID can identify millions of songs, from genres ranging
from the latest chart toppers to '80s rock classics. When the phone is
placed near a music source like a stereo speaker or car radio, V CAST
Song ID names the artist, song and album title. After successful
recognition, the application will determine if the song is available as
a full-track song, ringtone or ringback tone and, when prompted by the
user, directly launch either the Verizon Wireless' V CAST Music store
where the user has the option to purchase and download the full track
or the VZW Tones store, where the user can purchase the track as a
ringtone, ringback tone or both.

Personally we would prefer the lyrics from "Whatever You Like" like, "Last night sex was so wet, you're so tight. I'll gas up the jet for you tonight," not be identified. Other not-so-virtuoso lyrics from the song are, "You want it, I got it, go get it I buy it, tellem other broke n*$*^as be quiet."
