How It Works

Our contribution system works on five levels. Once you sign up you can start adding movie and songs, you can also ask questions and help other users out. As you contribute you gain points, and rank up.

The five levels are:
1 0-250 points
2 251-1000 points
3 1001-2000 points
4 2001-4000 points
5 4001+ points

How to Add

1. Sign in and add your desired movie from the link in our sidebar.

2. Proceed in adding the complete list of credited songs. Please take time to add the entire credited song list, not just the official soundtrack. The complete list of songs can be found in a movies end credits. Simply add these songs using the link from the movie page you have just added. As you search the songs, our system will grab the song samples from iTunes and insert it into our database. If a song is not found in the iTunes database you will have the option to insert it manually.
- Please note any contributions from a level 1 user must be approved by an administrator before it goes live. Once you advance to level 2 you can add movies and songs without moderation. This is to make sure newstarted are doing it properly.

3. Once you've added all the songs, you can go through and add the scene and time descriptions. This is best done by actually watching the movie. There are various ways to identify the songs while watching the movie. They are usually in the correct order as recorded from the end credits. You can also google lyrics, use the mobile app Shazam, or check online forums etc.

4. That's It! It's very easy, and quite rewarding. We encourage you to add as many scene and time descriptions in as you can. If you're songs do not have enough scene descriptions they may not be approved. We want WhatSong to deliver more than all the other soundtrack websites out there provide, and for that to happen we need to be as comprenhensive as we can.

Gaining Points

Adding a movie: 5 Points
Adding a Song: 1 Point
Adding a Scene/Time Description: 1 Point

For example: If you add 1 movie, with 28 songs, and you add 24 scene and time descriptions. You will gain, 5 + 28 + 24 = 57 points.
