Music downloads

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
It's hard for me to go out and buy CD's (have to drive over an hour away) I've never used any of the music download websites but I'm interested in it. Anyone out there have any good websites or tips for me?

I don't download stuff as a rule, but my friend has an IPod, and says their site is great. He raves about it!

I use iTunes for my work...saves me a ton of time and actually money. You may want to take a look. I also hear Yahoo does something like that too.

I have an iPod, so I use iTunes, too. Last Christmas, I bought my daughter a 3-month subscription to a music download service from Best Buy. She liked that, too.

My husband uses ITunes. I've used Walmart too. It's all been good for me! I don't have an IPod, we burn our own cds.

I use iTunes and I love it. I've tried the Yahoo Unlimited service and it's good because you can listen to full songs before buying them instead of 15 seconds or whatever--plus you can create play lists with songs you don't own and listen to them on your computer, and when you want to buy them they are only .79 cents instead of .99 and you pay per month ($8 or something like that), AND if you have a Yahoo Unlimited-compatible device the songs are free (ipods aren't) BUT I couldn't find ANY songs I wanted! I signed up for the free trial, downloaded it and ended up uninstalling it and cancelling in the same day. So I'll stick with iTunes.

I use MusicMatch. I buy a yearly subscription, but you can do monthly, which is $4.99 i think. You have unlimited access to any and all music. You can send music to portable devices(like ipod), cd/mp3 burner, artist/era radio(similar to XM radio), and more.

You can email your playlists to anyone, even yourself, and play them on a different computer... for free.

Downloads arent included, but you can pay .99cents per download and get them that way. I rarely ever download them, as they are free through your subscription. I dont ever use a regular stereo anymore, with a nice speaker system hooked up to your computer, it is great.

I just use the cd's I do have to burn mixes to play in my car and I use XM radio.

It works really well for me, but may or may not be what you are looking for.
There is more good info here: MusicMatch

I liked WinMx ahose site has just been taken down but there are downloads that will allow it to work again but there seem to be fewer dls now (sighhh!). Dling is still legal in Canada but illegal in the US for those kind of P2P apps (the ones where one dl for free I mean). LimeWire and KaZaa are favourites of many but alas, have way too much spyware for my liking. NOT a good choice. If not there are some other "free" sies out there in warez land.

You can burn CD's with iTunes. The software and membership are free...check it out! http://www.apple.com/itunes

disclaimer: I am a complete and total mac-ophile and I have trouble admitting that Apple can do any wrong, but iTunes really IS a great software.

I recently used Walmart's Music to download and burn a cd.
It's like .88 cents a song and you can find just about anything.

I use Allofmp3.com, it's a Russian site that charges for the file size you d/l, not the individual songs. A whole album costs about £2. They have been trying to shut the site down for ages but haven't been able to, as the site makes contributions to the artists and is therefore legal in it's own country (the legality of it in other countries is still open for interpretation).

At work I listen to the Yahoo Unlimited-I love it!!

I use iTunes (on a PC, so it's not just Mac software). They have a great selection, and downloads are pretty inexpesive. I also use eMusic. Their basic subscription lets you download a fixed number every month, so cheaper than iTunes, but not a broad a selection. They have lots of indy stuff.

I don't use any free music download sites, I worry about the nasty stuff that might be attached to the files.

I use Wal-Mart, as well. No legal repercussions and you can find any song you want, usually! (even some of the the older, more obscure ones!)

Another I-tunes user here. I have an Ipod so I just went with what came with it. That being said, I really do like the ease of using the software.
