Last year I found a page on Lycos where I could search and download songs for free. It doesn’t seem to be there anymore and I want to get some new music for my mp3 player for my workouts. I honestly don’t know much about downloading stuff and when I search the web I’m nervous that all these “free” sites are scams.
Is it still possible to download music for free or did the whole napster thing change that?
Any suggestions for me or sites I should check out? Thanks!
(I feel very old and clueless now…)
I work for the technology services department of my college. We have a constant stream of students whose computers “are running super slow.” The first thing I always check when these kids come in is whether or not they have limewire installed. All of the newest versions of limewire have severe and sometimes crippling amounts of spyware bundled with them. And, to be frank, they simply do not work as well as they used to.
The wave of the music sharing feature is torrents. I get all of my music through sites such as www.mininova.org www.isohunt.org and www.oink.me.uk
Torrents are really the way to go. Go to www.about.com and search for their article on torrenting. They explain it with much greater eloquence than I ever could.
Do NOT download limewire.You will open yourself to a world of computing pain.
I have heard good things about soulseek but have never personally used it.
