Let's see if our minds might have crossed on the same ideas :)

How about using bluetooth to send the song details? this way, the media player software sends the ID3 tag through bluetooth, and the interested consumer can see the details on his phone, after clicking the "request info" link.

A possible scenario - bars, cafes and clubs buy the complete kit: bluetooth dongle, sync software and a free media player. Plug the dongle, run the sync proggie, load your playlist, and run.

No extra pay for SMS, and a definite added value for the bar, cafe, club.

However - Nokia's Visual Radio (http://www.visualradio.com) is poised to take a major role in tying audio content with visual data and related services. Started in Europe and now has entered the US as well.
In fact, it's Nokia's aggressive answer the the DMB chip - the digital radio and media chips that offer digital broadcast of audio/video and data. Chips are already available in several handsets (mainly Samsung).

DMB Vs. Nokia Visual Radio is going to be an interesting battle for sure.

Your idea goes in the same direction and take it further even. It would be particularly relevant for social environment. The advantage of my initial suggestion is that is does not need any infrastructure.

I also tried the demo of visualradio: this technology looks/sounds amazing. Of course they still need to develop better radio coverage which is limited and handsets to operate this feature are not the most widely spread. But it could change the way we listen the radio.
