Free music - WHEN you want!

I have just discovered Spotify, and amazing aplication supported by all the major record labels. It looks simular to iTunes, but is far far far better if you have a PC and an internet connection.

You see, if you type in an artist into the Spotify search engine, it will 99 out of a 100 times display a huge list of tracks from that artist. You then can simply click on a track and it will instantly play in amazing quality!

I tried it out with "Jan & Dean". Now, even the best engines and programs rarely have much J&D, but this program has the largest J&D catalogue I have ever seen! Infact, everyone I thought of showed up. Only The Beatles are not on there as they would not give thier consent to stream the music.

The idea is to stop people downloading music, and just let them listen to music whenever they want. It's a fantastic idea for people who have access to a PC. You can set the settings to listen to random selections, or you can listen to albums by an artist. Whats more, there's a couple of pricing options... FREE and £9.99 a month. The free selection is supported by on-screen adverts and the odd occasional audio advert which is really not intrusive at all.

So, what are you waiting for? Download it now by clicking the title link and enjoy endless music!
