an idea:

Write a simple Kazaa client that does no searching, but instead participates in the network as a SuperNode. Make a number of them and distribute them on the Kazaa network. These clients do nothing but harvest data. They compile a database on the most popular searches. This data is fed into a database.

Write a simple Shoutcast client. This client polls the database as it's updated and automatically generates a playlist based on, for example, the 50 most searched for songs. Instant Top50 internet radio station, absolutely no maintenance required.

Finally, sell the data to record companies and make a million bucks.
