Wikipedia For Music Geeks

I discovered through Boing Boing that there is a crazy amount of info on Wikipedia about individual songs. I'll use Martha My Dear by The Beatles as an example (and certainly the most trivia and info will be on Beatles stuff). If you go to The White Album page on Wikipedia you can click on the individual tracks and read about each.

From Martha My Dear you get some introduction notes, info on the style and form, the origins of the song, a listing of all the performers and their instruments, and a paragraph about different cover versions.

Try it out here: Martha My Dear

Or the full album: The White Album
