What's India Listening?

With Google now tracking the music trends (through GTalk), we are in a position to see the real Top 10/20. KANK features prominently in the list and some are duplicate entries because of the error in the artist information. This is mainly because the downloaded tracks sometime feature the downloaded site's name in the artist field. Those who don't the source of the download would be wisely rewarded with a visit to sites like Papuyaar.com. Newyork Nagaram from Sillunu Oru Kadhal also figures in the India Top 20. One can also view the trend by genre. I saw Tamil listed as a genre yesterday, but that doesn't seem to be the case now. There are some more Tamil songs listed in the Unknown category.

If more people take to this, the data might get even more meaningful.

  • I just wonder, if in future, Google could also start telling us which locality/city/district/state downloaded which kind of songs... and such information could be useful for Movie Producers/Music directors to identify their target audiences effectively.

    The possibilities are limitless.

  • @Ramki830,
    very much possible considering that they are doing something similar with search trends.
