Must Have: Bing Top 100 Songs iPhone App, 1949-2009

Are you a music lover? If you are, then the following iPhone app is a MUST HAVE! Our fine friends from Microsoft, as you may already know have a search engine, appropriately named Bing. To market Bing’s iPhone resurgence, they are offering their Bing Top 100 Songs by Year, from 1949-2009, for FREE. This app is regularly priced at $1.99, but currently free.

Oh, and it’s US only, so you will require a US iTunes account to download it.

An Awesome App for a Blast to the Past

The Bing Top 100 Songs by Year app is pretty awesome. You just select a year and songs play immediately. You’ll see album art, plus links are included to download the song via iTunes. You can view the entire Top 100 list of songs by year, and preview them, but entire songs are only available via shuffle. It’s still fun to select a year, let it play and just enjoy your hot-tub-time-machine music experience vicariously through Bing. PS – music from the 80’s and the 90’s is awesome.

Here’s the description:

Hear thousands of the greatest songs of all time.

The songs are streamed in shuffle mode like a web radio station through 3G, Edge or Wi-fi.

Coupled with Backgrounder, and your Griffin iTrip Auto Pilot, your commutes are going to start being a bit more enjoyable. The app works over 3G and WiFi. Glad you got that 6GB data plan now? 😉

What I found strange was being able to listen to REAL music, that doesn’t contain a lick of ‘autotune’. Gee, they sure don’t make music like they used to, eh? Here are some screenshots below of your favourite songs of the past:
