10 Legal Ways to Find Free Music on the Internet.

By Buttermouth Wednesday, October 17, 2007
There are some really great ways to find music on the internet these days, thanks to the prominence of Web 2.0. But it's also harder than ever to find these great undiscovered sites. So I decided to list some of the best ways to find music for free on the internet.

To see our complete list of websites to find free music, click here.

10 Ways to Find Music on the Internet.

1.) SkreemR + MXPlay
This is probably the most complicated way, but it also enables people to get some great music. SkreemR is a website that lets you search the internet for specific artists or songs. Once you search for something, songs that fit your search are shown to you, and you can listen to any of them.

This is where the software MXPlay comes in. MXPlay searches the websites you visit for music. Anytime it finds music, a dialog is shown and it displays all the songs in a media player.

By combining the features of these two applications, you can simply search of artists or songs in SkreemR and immediately you can listen to all the songs in MXPlay. Works great and once you install MXPlay, it takes no effort to find music.

2.) AOL XM Radio
Another great unknown way to find music is through XM Radio. XM Radio has over 200 channels of music, sports, and talk with no commercials. The only problem is that it costs people like $13 dollars a month. But, AOL and AIM users (free registration) can listen to over 80 XM channels (which include their most popular music stations) for free on their computers.

I can't name how many new songs and artists I've found through XM radio. It really gets the job done nicely.

3.) ZuKool
After signing up for an account, all you need to do at ZuKool is pick one song that you like. After that, they do all the work by providing songs that are similar in taste to that song. Of course, if you want to make your results a little better, you can pick more than one song. You can also rate the recommendations to make future results better.

4.) TUN3R
This site combines old time radio with the connectivity of the internet. They have 1,500 radio stations from all over the world that stream music over the internet. The cool thing about TUN3R is that it has the feel of a radio, it even includes a tuner dial. Another cool feature is that you can search the stations for artists or songs they play, then on the main page they highlight which stations play that artist or song.

Try it out, just search a song, artist, genre, or language below, and the stations that match your query on TUN3R will be shown to you;

5.) Pandora
The Music Genome project tries capturing the unique identities of songs. They look at everything from melody, harmony and rhythm, to instrumentation, orchestration, arrangement, lyrics, and of course the rich world of singing and vocal harmony.

It's pretty amazing how good they've become at this. You can enter a song or artists, and get very meaningful recommendations based on their very specific "musical" genomes.

6.) MusicMesh
At MusicMesh you can listen to entire albums of mainstream bands. They even show you the video on youtube for each song on the album. Just click or search for a band, and the albums of that band will show up for you.

For each album, MusicMesh includes reviews, tracklists, the wikipedia entry, and Amazon order page.

7.) Grooveshark
Most of the sites above have users sharing songs so anyone can listen to them. The same thing goes for Grooveshark, except for the fact that the people that share on Grooveshark get money. They actually share 50% of their earning with their community, so the earnings can sometimes be substantial.

Grooveshark is still in beta, but is already a great resource for finding music.

8.) Anywhere.fm
This site has become really popular recently. Once people upload their songs on Anywhere, they can listen to their music from any computer with internet access. You can also share your play lists or libraries with any person you want, all for free.

9.) Jango
Jango connects people and their music. All you have to do to start is enter an artist you like, then songs from that artist will start playing.

This is when Jango's coolest feature comes into play. When you are listening to songs, you can see what other people liked that artist, and you can switch "stations'" to listen to exactly what those other people are listening to. You can even start chatting with them.

Jango is still in closed beta, but you can sign up for the waiting list on the main page, or the first couple people that comment on this post with their e-mails get an invite from me.

Edit: As of 11/20/2007 Jango is available to the public

10.) uPlayMe
I bet you can guess what uPlayMe does. Yup, it connects and shares music with people.

But uPlayMe also has a cool widget that you can paste into your blog, myspace profile, or webpage. The widget shows the music you have recently listened to, and shows the stats of the song when compared to other people in their community.

*10) Ruckus
This site is just for students with valid .edu e-mail addresses. If you have one of those, then you can download all the songs you want, for free. This is a great service, but we ranked it at #10 because it's limited to only students. Ruckus is also a good resource for finding new songs, because they show you the top playlists from different schools around the country. Just choose a playlist, album, or individual song and you can download them with one click of your mouse.
