If you mean gather examples, then just start collecting URLs to
top-lists that you know of on the web. We can put them on the
audio-info-examples page for now and move them into their own set of
pages if necessary. I've made a section for you to start adding
top-lists on the audio-info-examples page:


Please feel free to add as many examples as you can.

You could loosely accomplish what you are trying to do with XOXO +
hAudio, or XOXO + hReview, or XOXO + hReview + hAudio. The semantics
wouldn't be rock-solid (it would be difficult to get Firefox 3 to
understand that when it sees those two or three things together, it is a
top-list instead of a playlist).
