OK, quick show of hands: Who hasn’t hunted down a favorite music video on YouTube or some other streaming video service over the past few months? Right. Now, who of you out there hasn’t discovered new music by stumbling across a band’s video online for the first time? So, we can agree that music videos posted to the web are an inherent good then, right? Right. With that out of the way, let’s get down to business. No matter whether you’re looking to find an old favorite, or have a hankering to discover something new, music video streaming wunderkind HelloDay has something for you.
What makes HelloDay a slick enough viewing experience to warrant it’s being declared our Cool Site of the Week? One word: Choice. HelloDay is a music video depository with a free repertoire of tunes that spans hundreds of artists and a wide variety of genres. From classic pop to trip hop, Abba to Jay-Z, HelloDay’s got it all. Eschewing the use of any search functionality other than breaking the site’s music up into genres, HelloDay forces visitors to discover new music as they search for something familiar.
While this might sound like an exercise in frustration, in reality it makes for a refreshing viewing experience that’ll leave site visitors with a few more musical flavors lingering on their palate than they started off with. And if what you’re looking for isn’t already available on the site, HelloDay’s got you covered there as well, as users are encouraged to submit the URLs of new music videos for inclusion in the site’s collection.
Be sure to check back next Friday for another edition of Cool Site of the Week.
