I love music. I listen in the car, when I work out, when I do chores—whenever I can. As such, I’m always on the look out for great music I don’t have to pay for.
Fortunately, the Internet is full of places to get free music. Some of them even let you download it legally, too!
Apple has a whole section devoted to music (and movies, and apps, etc.) that are Free on iTunes. Not to be outdone, Amazon lets you browse their MP3 Store for free downloads. Now Google is getting in on the game.
If you haven’t checked it out already, be sure to head over to Google Play. Their interface is nothing special and the selection of music is no better than iTunes or Amazon MP3. However, they’ve got a much, much better selection of free music.
Head over to the Free Song Archive at the Google Play Magnifier Blog. Currently, they’ve got over 200 fantastic songs from the likes of Train, Social Distortion, “Weird Al” Yankovic, System of a Down, Mariah Carey, Shakira, Johnny Cash, Carrie Underwood, Whitney Houston, John Mayer, etc.
