The First 50Our community is nothing without good music. We believe that our first 50 songs are the most important. These artists set the standard for quality at Songladder.com. They took the time to upload music when Songladder was quiet and empty like a music club on a Monday night. Give these brave artists a listen!

Our FoundersSongladder was created by Mark and Leonard. Mark is a web developer with a passion for music. Leonard is a parrot who lives in a cage. He recites his favorite songs over and over again which can be maddening. Desperate for new music, Leonard hatched the Songladder idea.
The newest Songladder tune is "Lilac Time Serenade Variations Opus 1" by Orv Pibbs
Songladder music is free, but we need your support!
