We often use the apps like SoundHound or Shazam to find out the songs upon hearing them. However, we still have to memorize the lyrics and submit them to the search engine most of the time. For example, we went to 📽 the movies.

If we could get to know the song names by searching the movies/dramas, we wouldn’t need to memorize the lyrics when watching them.


How Might We Find Movie/Drama Names and Get to Know the Songs You Heard in Them?


🤔 Initial Idea

List the Songs in a Movie or Drama

  • Visitors might want to find the movies in theaters or streaming services.
  • There will be little data per movie or drama.
  • La La Land
    I Ran (So Far Away)
    Take on Me
  • Ready Player One
    Take on Me
    Stayin’ Alive
    Everybody Wants to Rule the World
↪️ 1st Iteration

List the Movies or Drama which Used the Song

I turned to introduce a song with its name, artist, lyric, and the movies/dramas heard.

  • Starman
    Artist: David Bowie
    Lightyear Trailer
    Troop Zero
    The Martian
    The Crown Season 3
    The Simpsons Season 26
  • Everybody Wants to Rule the World
    Artist: Tears For Fears
    Ready Player One
    Glee Season 4

Visitors reached the website by searching a song’s name, its artist and lyric, and movie/drama names.



The songs started to appear in search results and gain clicks. The keywords are:

A Song’s Lyric

A Movie or Drama’s Name with a Song’s Name

What I Have Learned

Information Architecture & Web Page Value

Information architecture affects web page value because search engines label those with few contents as Excluded.

Fair Use of the Album Covers

It’s common sense that album covers are subject to copyright, but fair use laws in many countries cover the use of low-resolution ones.
