A better way?

1 - Go to http://www.altavista.com/audio/
2 - Unclick everything but .MP3 and select >1 minute for the duration.
3 - Type in the name of your favorite songs (one per search :P )
4 - Look/check the directories those songs are contained in to see if they are open

Anything rooted in a domain that matches the song/group/artist/theme of the song is not a good bet. Look for domains that look like they are personal websites and .edu websites are usually good bets. The path/url of the .mp3 can also be suggestive of an open directory - if the path is /mymusic/goodmusic/BoA-Duvet.mp3 then odds are the directory is open. The vast majority of people either forget to put up dummy index files or don't realize that audio media can be found via search engines.

Anyways, I understand that this isn't hacking (which makes sense considering that I am not a hacker) ...but this isn't exactly the kind of thing that I can ask to a regular computer interest group. Does anyone have a better method of finding open directories containing audio? Is there a google command that will search for open directories or audio media extensions? I think I remember reading something years ago saying that google won't do audio because it finds open directories too often and thus helps violate copyrights... so the odds of this are kind of slim... but then again, I remember TONS of things that never happened so maybe they didn't say that. So anyways, does anyone know a better method? This is a really, really, really awsome way of finding really, really, really awsome music.
