music downloads

Post by Nostalgic Nerd » Wed Mar 22, 2006 10:01 pm

Free and legal. They are all on my blog and come from legitimate places like Epitonic, Barsuk Records, Insound, etc. You can find them on the side bar along with the archives.<br><br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://worldofpop.blogspot.com">worldofpop.blogspot.com</a><!--EZCODE LINK END--> <p>"Dream as if you'll live forever; Live as if you'll die today." --James Dean</p><i></i>

This is "The" link in legal downloads. Plenty of stuff. Another thing is it may seem obvious, but if you are at a labels website and they have downloads, then that would be legitimate too. Or a bands website you know of. It can all have its different trickiness, which is why I tend towards the more obvious places. <br><br><!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.goingware.com/tips/legal-dow ... <!--EZCODE LINK END--> <p>"Dream as if you'll live forever; Live as if you'll die today." --James Dean</p><i></i>

Certainly isn't going to be for everyone, but I've added a clip of Nada Surf's "Blizzard of '77". I personally haven't heard a hook that addicting in some time along with Blonde On Blonde. <p>"Dream as if you'll live forever; Live as if you'll die today." --James Dean</p><i></i>

Oh my gosh! I'm like a kid squirming. The classic Nada Surf video "Popular" is up.

It does work well, just doesn't really fit into the whole "legal" part.<br><br><!--EZCODE EMOTICON START 8) --><img src=http://www.ezboard.com/images/emoticons/glasses.gif ALT="8)"><!--EZCODE EMOTICON END--> <p>Elk River AA State Champions- 2001 Boys & 2004 Girls</p><i></i>

Most of the music I've got comes off of shared tunes in itunes. A hub connects my whole dorm and I just nab their music. <p>Taylor Mattson-The Next Non-Mr. Hockey</p><i></i>

ERE, I got your email on the Pro version and am checking it out. At under $20, it looks like a safe risk for me to take. <br><br>Lee <p>____________<br>Message Board arsonist since 2005<br>Egomaniac since 2006</p><i></i>

How to get music legally

Post by NumberCruncher » Thu Apr 06, 2006 6:23 pm

Alright listen up, I've done Napster, Kazaa, and Limewire. All worked well until Napster ran out of new songs becuase they got shut down, Kazaa put a virus on my computer, and well i just gave up on limewire becuase i have a new method.<br><br>GO TO THE LIBRARY!<br><br>You'd be surprised on how many newer CD's they have. And if it's an important CD they usually preorder it so it's there when you want it. Now when you "check out" this cd, go home and put it in and copy it to something like Windows Media Player or even iTunes. It's now stored in your library and then could go on your iPod. <br><br>Still not enough music?<br><br>If you know people with songs stored on their computers that you like, you are able to send songs via attachments on emails, or even over AIM.<br><br>If there are any other legal ways of obtaining music without paying for it let me know <p></p><i></i>

NumberCruncher, loading the library's CDs onto your computer isn't technically legal.<br><br>NostalgicNerd, check out this site:<br> <!--EZCODE LINK START--><a href="http://www.npr.org/templates/story/stor ... <!--EZCODE LINK END--><br><br>Full concerts from just about every 'it' band right now, Arctic Monkeys, Bell & Sebastian, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, et al. I don't think you can download them as they are, but there might be ways to get them loaded onto your computer. <p></p><i></i>
