How To Find New Music You’ll Actually Like & That Doesn’t Suck
Now you’re walking around with that mp3 player that you recently bought with all that space. You had to buy the “bigger better” one, right? Like the 8GB iPod Nano…
You paid for all that space, but haven’t been able to fill it up with mp3’s yet. In fact, you’re not even close to the limit, are you? Or perhaps you have no clue.
Either way, what you need is a way to find MORE music that you’ll like from different bands & singers you’ve never heard of. But how?
That’s where CHARTS come in very handy. After signing up a for a free trial at eMusic yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised to find on the site:
- First of course is the nice RED reminder that I get 25 FREE songs to download without paying anything at all! (Gotta love the internet & promotions)
- There’s a CHARTS tab at the top of the screen where you can see listings of various music lists that match your taste.
- On the left, you can look-up charts for 12 different GENRES.
- What’s more, eMusic allows you to refine the lists by things like MOST DOWNLOADED, HIGHEST RATED or EDITOR’S PICKS as well as time-frame like Today’s, This Week’s or the Top Charts of the Month.
That’s a great place to start and sampling music. The fact that you can download the mp3 music files one song at a time without buying an album is awesome. And you can burn the mp3 files an unlimited times to CD to play in your stereo at home or in the car, or copy the file to your iPod or wannabe mp3 player.
And by paying only $0.33 for each song (or less if you upgrade to larger plans), you can fill up that 4GB or 8GB iPod guiltfree.
