Streampad is a fun application for music lovers who use Tumblr. After installing Streampad to your site, any song you post to your blog via Tumblr's "Audio" feature will automatically be loaded into a playlist that appears at the bottom of your home page. This allows you and your readers to play all your posted songs at once without scrolling back through your archives. Remember to keep copyright laws in mind and always credit the source when posting content that doesn't belong to you.
