Moonbase Alpha community, so is currently not friendly to screenreaders. It
is also done in my spare time as a 16 year old going through exams


If anyone has any suggestions, like to add features or add songs to my
database, just pop an email back through (somehow, I don't know how these

This is just a cool project scraped together using node.js, a "legitimate"
