I built GetWorkDoneMusic during July as a fun side project.
Toward the end of July, I put it online, posted it to Hacker News, and instantly went viral hitting #1 and being posted to hundreds of blogs.
Some notable sites it was posted on include: Liferhacker, USAToday Popcandy blog, CNET How-to, Fuse.tv, HowToGeek.com, MakeUseOf.com, PCWorld (see full list of URLS below).
I'm not looking to make a lot of money from this sale, but instead give it to a good owner that is looking to grow the site.
I've gotten countless emails asking me to further develop the site, one saying that they'd be willing to pay a monthly membership subscription to access premium features like favoriting (see below). Another spoke to me about incorporating upvote/downvote buttons to play similar songs and build personal playlists (like Pandora). An email (attached to listing) asks to build an accompanying mobile app ($$$ potential here to charge a few bucks for the app).

Subject: can I pay you for http://getworkdonemusic.com
? It is great! I'd pay a monthly fee (somewhere around $10) to be able to star tracks and over time build up the best work music play list.
Unfortunately I don't have any available time to dedicate to this site since I have some other projects going on with other partners. So instead of letting it just sit, I thought I would release it.

People LOVE this website and the concept. Just check out the tweets!
Programmers, designers, writers, students, creatives... in the office, at home, during hackathons and late-night projects, even at the gym...It's being used by professionals all over the world, giving people the music-driven energy to get sh*t done.
A stunning amount of people remember the name and unique concept.. they end up sharing it with their friends and getting back to the site by typing the url directly in their browser or googling it. The brand equity on the site is already high, and the potential for branding is even higher!
The website has been featured on the sites below, sorted chronologically (Backlinks!! Website is already PR4 for being just a few months old):
Since the website just streams the songs straight from Soundcloud, there's no bandwidth resources needing to be used on the site. So what does that mean? Server costs: $0! I've been hosting it on a $15/month Site5 shared host and it's been able to keep up with 1000s of simultaneous connections from visitors all around the world.
I try to keep the algorithm a secret since that's the beauty of delivering the great music on the website, so I will only explain my methodology to the winner. The script to source the tracks from Soundcloud will be included.
BTW In the screenshots the "Avg. Visit Duration" metric is not accurate because that can only be calculated when they visit a second page on the website, and since this is a one-page website it's not possible. The average visit is most likely in the hours!
Additional Revenue Details
In the beginning I didn't have any monetization on the site. At the end of August I put an AdSense leaderboard banner on the bottom to see what would happen, which has consistently been making money (see AdSense screenshots).
This shows interest from visitors toward relevant ads, and future monetization potential. Making real revenue from this site could include strategies like incorporating more of an ad-based layout, creating a membership structure, or developing paid mobile apps. Even a combo of all 3 would skyrocket the site's potential!
Additional Traffic Details
In its first week, the site received over 58,000 visits after going viral.
Lately it has stabilized betwen 500-1500 visits a day, but in the last few days it's gone viral again and been receiving in excess of 4,000 visits per day and made $85 just on Thursday Nov. 29!
