Our philosophy

The first motivation of AURFEE Site is to introduce to the Users songs selected primarily on the basis of their melodic quality (which is of course a subjective exercise).

Contrary to the many sites specialized in best of and charts, our choice is not (only) based on the number of sales or the popularity of songs. We have first looked for the quality of the melody, then the beauty of the arrangements and of the singer(s)' voice.

Moreover, without any sectarianism, the chosen songs cover several styles of music and generations: the oldest was released in 1932 !

We present, currently, 700 songs and 220 bonus tracks, 40 movie soundtracks and 40 classical masterpieces. This collection, which is not intended to be either exhaustive or definitive, will be regularly updated  in the months ahead.

All Site content is accessible from the Main Menu (or Main selection list for a Smartphone or a tablet):

    ►50s: introduction of the songs and musics up to the 50s included.

    The songs are introduced in a table with columns of informations that may be sorted.

    The following informations might then be sorted (in ascending or descending way):

    • Song title
    • Release date of either the single or the album, depending on the chronology
    • Singer or Band
    • Country
    • Musical genre
    • Reference (songs index, taking into account the informations "release year", "singer-band" and " song title")
    • Users' votes

    For a Smartphone or a tablet, the 3 (2) last sortable columns are hidden by default and may be displayed with "+".

    The different results pages are available at the bottom of the table.

     

    Other years: introduction of the songs and musics collection from the 60s to the 2010s.

     

    Movie soundtrack and classical music: same use as for the songs, but with specific movie and classical music informations.

    Search: allow to search for a song title, a singer or a band, or a musician introduction (only available on the Home page of the Site).
