Google Music Trends: See What Google Talkers Are Listening To

Garett Rogers spotted
the release of Google Music Trends.
The Google Labs has it listed and
described as "See what music is popular among Google Talk users." It is
basically Google
Trends
for music, though based on the activity of Google Talkers rather than
Google searchers. You can currently filter by music genre, and there is a
country filter, but I only see the United States as an option. I am a
classic rock
fan, so it is cool to see the trends for that genre. As Garett notes, the
participate
link at the top right, currently does not go anywhere.

Postscript: More on the new music status feature that powers Google
Music Trends is covered here:
