I am looking for someone who is able to create a complete lyrics website in a relatively short time. If possible I would like to have the site finished and fully functional within 3 weeks.
The lyrics will all be sourced from a lyrics licensing company so the website will need to interact with their API which returns XML or JSON data.
Previous experience working with APIs is essential.
I have an existing lyrics website with thousands of visitors per day. I will need to redirect all traffic from the old URLs to the new ones and eventually delete the old version of the site.
I am looking for a simple, clean layout.
The site will need to have an easy system for adding lyrics in the future (sourced from the lyrics license provider.)
For now, these are the important features (There may be future work for the successful developer to work on some extra features in the future)
Must be human-friendly such as [url removed, login to view]

Lyrics Directory (A-Z and #) listed by artist name
Search Box (will return artist, song title, album, or lyrics results)
Navigation (current location - for example “HOME >> Lyrics >> C >> Coldplay >> Clocks Lyrics) Each part of the navigation should be clickable.
Facebook “like” and Twitter “Tweet” buttons.
list of the Top 25 (number can be changed) most popular lyrics
Newest 40 (number can be changed) lyrics
Custom list of 10 songs (for example “10 best Halloween songs which will be manually chosen)
Music news feed (10 headlines from any free RSS source)
A list of the 10 most recent searches (if possible)
Lyrics listed with the following information:
Needs to have the ability to display a youtube video (if one is available for a particular song)
Need to allow users to add a comment. Below the comment box it should say “Post this comment to my Facebook Profile" like on this site:

Another option would be to use disqus ([url removed, login to view])
Top 25 songs listed in the format Coldplay - Clocks Lyrics
This page will have a list of featured artists which will be selected by me every week or every month.
INDIVIDUAL ARTIST/BAND PAGES
This page will include a discography for each artist complete with artist photo, biography, album release dates, tracks and cover art (all available through API)
with the URL [url removed, login to view]
Ability to sell advertising directly through the site. Allow advertisers to login to their accounts to see their ad performance.
I am open to suggestions about other features to add, features which are listed but unnecessary, and changes to the design which would be beneficial. Please consider the changes you recommend when you give me a price.
I would like to see any relevant examples of similar work you have completed. It is essential that the site is attractive, easy to navigate and simple to maintain.
