A spreadsheet for the ReverbNation Sponsored Songs giveaway

Yesterday I posted about ReverbNation's Microsoft Windows Sponsored Songs giveaway.  Since making that post, I decided to do a little more work to make the songs a little more accessible.  The ReverbNation page allows you to view no more than 20 entries at a time; through a lot of copying and pasting (51 pages worth) and a little text manipulation using my favourite text editor, gVim, I managed to create a spreadsheet with information about all 1008 (yeah, a few more than the advertised 1000) songs in it.  

You won't find links to the actual songs in the spreadsheet, because it is not possible to do that given the way the site is set up.  What you will find is the artist, location, genre, and title of each song.  A read-only version of the spreadsheet can be found right here.  If you view the spreadsheet in List View (by selecting View -> List View from the Google Docs menu), you can sort the spreadsheet by any of the columns.  You can also export the spreadsheet (File -> Export) into a variety of formats, so if you want to have more filtering and sorting options than those offered by Google Docs, this is your best bet.

If you find any errors or incomplete data in the spreadsheet, please let me know and I will fix it as soon as I am able to.  I hope this helps at least a few people find some cool music that may otherwise have gone unnoticed.  Happy sorting, filtering, and listening!

Brilliant! Stunningly brilliant even. This makes it so much easier to search for stuff.
