UNCONVENTIONAL MP3 WEBSITE, REQUEST-A-SONG.COM, RELEASES 76 ORIGINAL SONGS IN ITS FIRST YEAR ONLINE

Nearly All Songs Based On Website Visitor Suggestions

RALEIGH, NC - (Send2Press Newswire) - Oct. 1, 2003 -- Request-A-Song.com (RAS) announced today that it has released 76 original songs in its first year online, almost all of which are based on suggestions submitted by visitors to the site. Each of the 76 songs is available for free download in MP3 format on the website (www.request-a-song.com). RAS, which opened its virtual doors October 1st, 2002, is celebrating its first anniversary of writing, recording, and publishing original music based on the input of Internet users worldwide.

The songs released over the course of the year run the gamut from the wacky to the well-crafted, mostly catchy piano- and guitar-based pop rock pieces running under three and a half minutes. The site's catalog also includes forays into experimental music, rap, folk, and country genres. Popular songs on the site include "My Dad Thinks I'm Gay," "Violent House Panda," and "(Nobody Owns) The Center of The Earth." Most of the songs' titles and subject matter were directly inspired by selections from a pool of over 2000 song suggestions, or "requests," the site has received since its introduction, last fall.

Visitors to the site submit song requests consisting of proposed song titles or other interesting phrases. The RAS songwriters then read the requests, and if one appeals to them, they will write and record a song based on the request, then publish it on the site in MP3 format, adding a new song at least every Wednesday. The resulting songs usually turn out more interesting than anticipated, as the songwriters try to take an unexpected angle on the ideas they receive.

"We like to continuously challenge our skills at creating new music," says RAS creator and head songwriter Benj Edwards, "We did it before we started the site, but the Internet has let us take it to new heights, and has allowed us to reach a global audience with music whose distribution was formerly confined to the tiny room I call my studio."

About Request-A-Song.com
Request-A-Song.com has been running since October 1st, 2002, publishing over 70 songs online and releasing its first CD, "Best Of Request - Vol. 1" in July. RAS has been featured on Billboard.com, and one of Edwards' songs, "The Evil Toucan Sam," has been played numerous times on the "Dr. Demento" radio show. The site's free songs have been downloaded over 23,000 times combined by visitors all over the world.

The site can alternately be accessed through the address http://www.requestasong.com .
