esFresh, music on demand for free.

Video sharing sites have been very useful to me personally since I already quit using P2P downloading for music.  Why? Well, video sharing sites contain thousands of music videos or videos with music that I listen to without watching the videos.  If you're a person who likes songs, video sharing sites like YouTube are your best friend for the music you can't buy or download.

Given that they may be the largest most accessible source for music, and music videos, esFresh has capitalized on using this phenomenon for their own purposes.  esFresh is a music video on demand site that crawls video sharing sites for music videos and videos with the music (AMV's).  
Their site is fairly simple to use.  There's no need to sign up for an account just enter the artist of the music you'd like to listen to or watch then they give you a list of videos with all the songs of the artist in the query.  With that list, the user can create a playlist of the songs and videos he wants to watch and listen to.

esFresh has its own video player so its not just a bunch of links and pop-ups.  Below the video player is a Flash interface for the playlist.  The user can search for songs of other artists then simply add them to the playlist which then plays the songs sequentially.

All in all, if you're like me, this vertical search for music videos will be very useful because you could record the audio off the web and get away with it.  Or this could be your very own choose-it-youself music player in the background.  Though setting up the playlist may be a bit slow, it's still manageable.
