I have a database of 5,000 artists and song names. Please write a scraper that does the search for the artist and song name on Amazon.com search bar and record only the product that is a downloadable MP3 Song.

For example:

Song is "madonna take a bow"

Doing a search on amazon goes here:   [obscured]  /s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=madonna+take+a+bow&x=0&y=0

First search result is a "download mp3 song". We want the URL of that link:

  [obscured]  /Take-A-Bow-Album-Version/dp/B00122ELVO/ref=sr_1_1?s=gateway&ie=UTF8&qid=1285276862&sr=8-1

Deliverable will be a spreadsheet of artist, song title, amazon mp3 URL. Also a PHP function that does this search and passes back an appropriate URL or no result.

I understand that there is also amazon web services, if it is easier to use this and you are familiar with AWS, use this but regular screen scraping is also adequate for this job....
