(Newser) – Sure, you can listen to the hundreds of gigs of music you have on your computer—but why limit yourself? Mashable lists the top Web sites and applications to help you really utilize your audio library:

  • Last.fm: One of the Web’s most popular music social networks, the site’s best feature is Scrobbler, which analyzes your listening habits and gives you recommendations based on your own tastes.

  • TidySongs: Too overwhelmed to scan your iTunes library for duplicates, misspelled tracks, or other mistakes? Let this application do it—and fix errors—for you automatically.
  • Livekick: Just upload your iTunes library—or profiles from many online music sites—and this site will populate a concert calendar that you can have delivered via email or RSS.
  • TuneWiki: This site offers a free iPhone app that serves up the lyrics to the songs you’re listening to on your iPhone or iPod touch—it can even translate them into more than 40 languages.
  • JamLegend: This game is like Guitar Hero for the Web, but it allows you to upload your own songs to rock out to.
