Here's a bunch of music that's in the public domain.

It should be super easy for someone to create an RSS feed that contains several of these songs to put together a mixtape of sorts, or to group a whole album into an RSS feed.

Add
<podcast:medium>music</podcast:medium>
to the feed, host it somewhere and add it to the Index, and voilà, there's another album in the index for a future RSS music player to access.

With podping, I bet it's even possible to create a dynamic feed, where a user can add a song to the RSS feed, the feed gets dynamically published, a ping is sent out so the apps can get the new feed, and the song is added to the queue.

Throw some some sort of digital payment like a boost as a requirement to add a song, and you have something like an RSS digitial jukebox.

@StevenB what if the queue is sorted by sats deposited on the song and the next song playing basically goes to the highest bidder? Like the way the mempool works for transactions & fees only translated to a jukebox environment

There's another issue with length tho, where maybe we have the sats per minute of the song and set the minimum at 1 sat/min. That way there's something to counterweight if people wanna just feed Pink Floyd's "Dogs" into your jukebox over & over.

@StevenB also could be good to set a cooldown time once a song is played, maybe a cooldown can be bought out for sats as well but the cost to override the cooldown on a particular track increases each time it's used?

Just spitballing
