Free Stuff: Music
There are millions of ways to download music; legally or illegally. While illegal songs are always free, it doesn't give any credit to the artists who make them. Here are three ways to save on music or get it for free:
1. Band websites- If the band or artist is not well known or is newly discovered, they usually offer a free download of one of their songs.
2. Discovery Downloads- Every Tuesday, iTunes offers two to three songs available for free. Usually they are new artists and bands but sometimes they offer new songs by well-known popular artists or they release songs right before they come popular (ex: Tik Tok- Ke$ha). Either way it is a great way to discover new music.
3. Youtube- I internet is available almost everywhere you go, and youtube lets you listen to songs and watch videos for free, there is almost no reason to buy music. Instead of buying a song as soon as you hear it, try listening to it a few times online first. There is a high chance that it will quickly be replaced as your favorite by another new song, or if it is really popular, you will hear it everywhere you go.
