Song Release Year

Ever wondered what year a particular song was released?

This API will let you know approximately what year pretty much any song was released. All you need to do is feed in the name and artist of the song. Internally, we use this to provide "nice to know" information about songs playing on radio stations.

Usage Instructions

https://api.interlinked.us/song?key=KEY&title=songname&artist=artistname&fpr=[true/false]

Optional arguments: specify fpr=true to limit results to years 1979 and older. Specify as many arguments as you can for best accuracy.

Example Usage:

https://api.interlinked.us/song/?key=DEMO&title=venus&artist=bananarama → 1986

https://api.interlinked.us/song/?key=DEMO&title=venus&artist=shocking%20blue → 1970

https://api.interlinked.us/song/?key=DEMO&title=like%20a%20rolling%20stone&artist=bob%20dylan → 1965

Obviously, these are a few examples of the API working. You can expect it to be less reliable when feeding it songs of which many versions or covers exist. Beyond that, it will sometimes fail for seemingly no reason. From extensive testing, it works about 80%-85% of the time. It will either spit back the correct year, the wrong year, an error, or nothing at all, simply because our algorithims are not 100% exhaustive.
