Free Music Downloads
Everyone likes and craves
free music downloads. There are sites galore with every possible format for
the music aficionado to choose as their favorite free music download site.
Presently in the USA, many of them only offer a limited offering of
free music. These are primarily the top ten singles of only the most popular
kinds of music. Furthermore, a person can?t download the ?free? music but only
listen to it courtesy of an embedded mpeg player provided by the webpage.
A particular webpage,
http:www.1000-free-music-downloads.com, lists nine optimum criteria. I have
reviewed a website claiming to provide free tunes and have used these
criteria to rate them wherever possible. http://www.artistdirect.com, is
organized by categories such as ?what?s hot, news, shop, artists, music, movies
and videos, tickets and UBL (stands for Ultimate Band List).? This location does
not come close to meeting the first criteria, that of being ?convenient to
Primarily because you can?t download a single song free, the embedded mpeg
player has no function to ?save? the file as something else on your computer.
While this site meets the second criteria of not requiring subscription dues, it
failed in being able to provide ?100%? of your favorite music. I love Celtic
music, preferably bagpipes, gospel, folk, and jazz in that order. It was able to
easily provide a jazz selection. There was no gospel available and could only
provide a link to the most recent single of ?The Chieftains?. This link could
not offer a free listen but was only an advertisement.
Videos are available to purchase and there are a few accompanying a particular
single. However, they cannot be
downloaded freely to your computer, just like the audio mpeg. There wasn?t
an easy way to find out what the site?s ?cash-back guarantee? was. I don?t know
how proficient their support system is for website problems but I think that it
matches their inability to provide a wide range of music types. Therefore it
would be wise to be cautious about sharing one?s membership information with
them. In fairness, I mention that they did promise not to reveal personal
information to third parties. Last, I wasn?t able to enjoy my favorite musical
selection because free music downloads with no credit card needed just doesn?t
exist anymore within the USA.
