Listening to music online can be free if you know what website to visit for streaming. With a fast Internet connection, I see that there’s no necessarily to buy albums from iTunes or Amazon given that there’s so many music streaming site out there. I used to be a download person where I download every tracks I like off the Internet and listen it on my computer from illegal P2P software like Kazaa, Audio Galaxy then now famous Torrent.
I still buy my favourite tracks and download music some times, but not most of the time, I am getting lazier. For most of the time, when I am home, or with a decent Internet connection, I will just head over to my favourite music streaming sites to listen to latest hits or some interested playlist. It’s easier this way as I need not to plan my playlist, every thing go shuffle and I listen to whatever is playing.
Even when I’ve got bored with famous hits, I can still look for new independent music with these streaming sites. Let me share with you a few music sites that I visits frequently.
- Pandora (Bypass with Hola Unblocker) – Easy to search, and personal favourite for pop music, and genre playlist)
- 8tracks – Lots of different type of playlist to listen, social based. I listen more relaxing music here.
- YouTube – The best video website is also the best music streaming site.
- EX FM – Similar with 8tracks, but more on listening to single tracks.
With these sites, I believe you can enjoy your music all day long. Spotify is not available here in Malaysia, so I can’t comment on it. Do share with me your favourite music site too.
