Free Music Download Sites
Free and legal music? Most everyone knows you can
download free music files on the Net. Illegally copied files are
everywhere, but you don't have to break the law to find good
So, where are the best places to go? Here are
some sites that are worth your while.
A great place to start is Amazon.com, best
known for its books. Their Free Music Downloads area offers free
MP3 files from many well-known artists. In addition to these
headliners, independent artists can upload as many songs as they
like and collect money for their music via a "virtual tip jar."
Registration is required to access the free files.
RollingStone.com no longer offers MP3
downloads, but their RS Radio offers four "channels" of totally
free music from top artists.
You'll need RealPlayer to listen to the music.
eMusic.com is one of
the best places to buy music online, since it offers MP3 files
that aren't copy-protected or limited. The service isn't free,
but you can sign up and get 50 free files before you have to pay
