  SEATTLE, WA, Mar 25 (MARKET WIRE) -- 
 nuTsie, a leading music service for web and mobile, today announced that the
'iTunes Top 100' playlist on nuTsie.com (http://www.nuTsie.com) has taken over
the
top returned search results for the nation's most important pop music chart
on the web's largest portals, including Google, Yahoo! and AOL.

    "That people are finding and listening to the iTunes top 100 on nuTsie
proves at
least two things -- one, nuTsie gives music fans the full-track experience
they're
looking for, and two, Apple and iTunes aren't the be-all and end-all," said Dave
Dederer, Vice President of Business Development at Melodeo and founding
member of the GRAMMY-nominated, multi-platinum rock band The Presidents of the
United States of America.

    "We're hearing a lot of noise about Apple offering unlimited music, but
right
now fans can't hear full tracks from the iTunes store, period. We're serving up
their most popular content 24 hours a day for free on nuTsie.com,"
(http://www.nutsie.com/playlist/iTunes%20Top%20100/1265257)added Dederer.

    Today's announcement follows news earlier this month that nuTsie surpassed a
major
traffic milestone in February as more than one million music fans logged in
for free online and mobile access to their entire iTunes music library and the
most robust music discovery experience on the web.

    Music fans can tune in to nuTsie online anytime for the web's best selection
of today's hottest music, including featured playlists such as 'The Rolling
Stone 500 Greatest Songs of All Time' and featured artists such as REM and Lil'
Wayne. Fans can also get an endless stream of recommendations based on the
contents of their entire iTunes library, a feature unique to nuTsie.
