Is Myspace.com still around? Not sure, we haven’t checked our account for years! So where do we get to hear the hottest new talent. How does Thamarai.com find all these amazing artists? Facebook, I hear you say? It’s not! The credit goes to the video uploading giants Youtube.com. Just as video killed the Radio star, it’s digital offspring decided to serve a killer blow to Myspace aswell! Search your favourite song by typing in the name of your favourite singer, and then check out the acoustic covers by the unsigned artists. These are not just limited to English songs but Tamil or Hindi if you prefer. See if that version matches or even surpasses the original. If so, fingers crossed the singer has their own material!
