Top 5 Sites for Free Music Downloads

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

Finding free music downloads can be a challenge. The biggest problem is the number of fake sites that are always claiming to give free song downloads. Many of these sites will need you to either register or download something. In the worst case scenario, some sites will actually lead you on for hours taking you from one useless step to another until you eventually tire. But in the midst of all these, there are several sites that offer the real deal and will give you something that you can actually listen to. Here are a few of these sites:

1. Beemp3.com: This is a favorite among many people. Beemp3 is one of the longest running sites offering free music downloads and there are few sites if any that can claim to have a larger database of free songs. Beemp3.com is not just free but also quite easy to use. All you will have to do is enter a “Captcha” and you will be set to download at very good speeds.

2. Mp3Raid.com: Is also a great site and they also have a good database. Searching for songs is very easy here and their well organized database will allow you to find songs and artists quickly. The downside is that it takes two or three steps to get to the free music downloads.

3. Mp3.com: This is the site with the easiest name to remember and just like the name, the site is also very easy to navigate. The songs on the site are carefully grouped according to genre so if you are not looking for a particular song but just a particular type, say jazz, this site will give you a much easier time. The downside is the small size of its database and there are many songs that you would not find here.

4. Alfamp3.com: This is also another good site and offers not just free music downloads but also music videos so it can be lots of fun. There is a good deal of clicking required to get to the songs so patience must be exercised.

5. Plazamp3.com: This site definitely works. The problem is that the sheer number of ads will overwhelm most people and it is easy to click on an ad thinking it is the download link. If you know your way around ads you should be able to get something out of this site.

Where to Get the Best Legal Free Music Downloads

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

There are many sources of downloads available online, but most are either not complete downloads or are illegal. There are, however, a few great places to find legal free music downloads of complete songs by a wide range of artists.

Amazon.com regularly offers free music downloads in the form of singles and entire albums. Pages with free song downloads are available for the U.S. at amazon.com/Free-Songs-Music/b?ie=UTF8&node=334897011 and the U.K. at amazon.co.uk/MP3-Music-Download/b?ie=UTF8&node=77197031

Many artists offer free music downloads, sometimes only for a limited time, on their official website pages or on their other pages, such as those found on MySpace. Follow your favorite artists on Facebook or Twitter to get the latest news regarding their free download offerings.

SPIN magazine offers free iTunes music downloads for readers that anyone can obtain by first going to their website’s iTunes page at spin.com/itunes. On it there will be a code that is to be used in order to download the latest free legal music download offerings. There is also an expiration date for the code listed.

They are not the only magazine that offers free music downloads for readers. People magazine also has a website page devoted to giving readers and others free iTunes music downloads. Their free music downloads page may be found at styleentertainment.timeinc.net/people/countryplaylist/.

Glide magazine is another great source of legal free music downloads to check out. The page for their free downloads is glidemagazine.com/downloads.php.

Freebies blogs and websites also regularly list a variety of sources of free singles and albums that can all be downloaded legally and free. The best way to utilize this type of resource is to subscribe so notification will be received immediately. Some offers are limited and only those quickest to respond will get the free download.

Some sites offer one free download at a time, rather than multiple songs or albums. A few examples are the radio station K-Love at klove.com/music/store.aspx and the Artist Direct website at artistdirect.com/nad/freestuff/0,,,00.html.

The offerings from all of the aforementioned sources of legal free music downloads change regularly, giving the music lover an opportunity to obtain quite an impressive music library for no cost.
