maybe the whole idea of music being pressed onto records is wrong in itself. maybe music shouldnt be recorded, maybe it should only be played live? or maybe recorded music should be free like looking at a copied art work, but live music is what you pay for.

If you need the files on your computer then bandcamp is the way to go. They've got tons of free stuff and you can get lossless files too. pretty much my whole music collection is either FLAC or ALAC.

Spotify is good but the quality sucks and it's more like listening to a full record being played over the radio imo.

Band camp.

Emusic your first 20 downloads are free when you sign up or something like that.

Also between spotify and pandora, spotify at least pays me when my music is streamed, even if pandora pays, I wouldn't know, because I've never submitted an album for them.

For example on bandcamp, my album is 10.99 on google play, 8.99 on iTunes, 3 dollars on bandcamp.

Buy a blank tape. Maxol 90 min.
Put on the radio and press play and record on the tape deck.
Remember to press pause when the d.j. starts talking.

I frequently find albums on Amazon cheaper than I would find them on iTunes. Even if it's like $0.50 cheaper, I'm still saving.

Also, I really enjoy last.fm.

Probably because it's the morally good* thing to do...

I don't mind the radio occasionally, but fact is that they stopped putting tape decks in car radios (unless you pay extra for it). Also, I'm only 24, and I remember cars having tape decks in the radio.

Yea, I was just thinking about recording songs off the radio as a kid.
If I had no money I'd take one of my parents original tapes and cover the little tabs up the top with sticky tape so I could record over them.
That was about 24 years ago, hence the "man I'm old".

My car has a tape deck. Granted, it's from 1988, but still. Not everyone has a car from 2013.

Amazon mp3.
I have an iPod but the iTunes store sucks. I hate having to put in my password 3 times just to buy anything, Amazon is way quicker in that respect and I can stream the albums to my mobile via their app. also automatically puts the new stuff in iTunes unlike buying from other sources.

I use Grooveshark myself and I even pay for a subscription to get rid of the ads and get their desktop app and whatnot. I don't think the ability exists anymore to buy the songs from an iTunes link with the new Grooveshark (they do use Flattr though).

I have very few problems, other than occasionally having to re-add a song or two to my playlist if a user account is closed and therefore the song lost or something. Their support is always awesome, very down-to-earth and extremely helpful.

If anyone does use Grooveshark actively, check out and follow my artist account:

The artists and labels, I am not even kidding add all your favorites to your facebook and every now and again you get links to free downloads.

The only problem is that Grooveshark isn't licensed to have most of those songs.

I'm on Spotify right now. For an all round library and player it's the best really.

Due to how their deals with labels work it doesn't have bits and pieces sometimes, but it's never been anything that's really bothered me. I occasionally hear people mentioning the quality, but unless you're an audiophile it's perfectly fine (and at the very least equivalent to any other streaming service).

Bandcamp is also quite good, but is much more limited and isn't really a media player. Bands usually have an album at least up on their you can listen to for free though, and since the bands upload it themselves that usually includes bands too small to be on spotify.
