I made a site to help search music services at the same time. Right now the songs link to their respective websites for playback. In the future I’d like to do the playback on the site itself. I’m using php, jQuery, and Twitter Bootstrap along with Spotify’s metadata API, Grooveshark’s Tinysong API and Rdio’s Web Service API.
Code is hosted here.

Development is an iterative process of testing, learning and improvement. I’ve made a few changes to Etsy Outfits (git repo here) including a ‘load more’ option for loading more search results, as well as the ability to put together an outfit without registering on the website. When I showed the site to my friends most of them said ‘I didn’t feel like signing up in order to do anything’ so to lower the barrier to entry I changed the site so that you can create an outfit and only when you click ‘save’ does it prompt you to login or register. This is akin to ‘lazy registration’. I save the information by storing an associative array of the outfit information as a cookie. I did something similar in the Lyricist project my friends and I were working on a few years ago.
