A book that lists every recorded song that contains hand claps

Hand claps are the most infectious way to make a good song fantastic. If there was a book that listed, alphabetically by artist, every recorded song with the sounds of clapping hands in it, fans of this particular effect (there are plenty!) could search out and discover new music. The book could be updated each year to include new songs. There could be contests sponsored by the publishers that awarded artists who best utilised the hand clap. Same thing could be done for the infamous 'cow-bell'.

       Are there existing databases tagging musical tracks by the instruments played in them? If so, this would belong in there, methinks.

       I can't [mfd] this one since I strongly suspect it's not widely known. However, the cowbell database already exists (see link - made popular via US TV somewhere) and the clapdatabase is an echo
