I would like to be able to extract the sentiment of listeners on YouTube. More specifically, I would like to perform natural language processing majik on the comments of various songs. These songs come from Alpha Pup Records an independent record label.
If I were to successfully determine the sentiment of listeners for each song, then I would be able to compare the relative sentiment of various songs. Which song on artist x's new album receives the best sentiment?
Has anyone worked on projects of this nature? I would like to hear any anecdotes you have to offer; I am in the mood for any interesting read.
I am a stupid college student interested in various things. Where should I start, if were to embark on this project?
