True. Its a shame, because its a good idea, too bad the the business side didn't float. After 3 years, they only have under 100 followers on Twitter for goodness sake. So either they have no artists signing up or the artists don't like the service. :(

The technology or idea is not new but the site is just plum cool! Songdrop is a bookmark site for all the music you like from across the web. Your music crate or collection can be shared, followed and made into playlists. But again, where Songdrop wins is the design. My hand is itching already to start thumbing through music online as I would feel walking into an old wharehouse in Oakland filled with discarded records.
