Off to visit Gracenote...
Gracenote doesn't allow commoners into their database. Even to look.

From their site:
Gracenote made the hard decision to remove the website search in favor of focusing the site and our web resources on our customers. Many millions of you will still use Gracenote’s recognition technology daily, on your desktop with products like iTunes and Winamp, on your mobile phones, in your cars and home entertainment systems. Thank you for understanding.
They consider their customers to be developers, not the end-user. And while they are strictly correct, it makes for a non user-friendly service in this day and age of open access.

Our new website was designed to meet the needs of our developers and those of content creators and owners – our customers.
