    Thread moved to The Cafe.

    There are vast amounts of music available online to download:

    https://creativecommons.org/legalmusicforvideos <-- free to use
    www.amazon.com <-- comercial and restricted.

    What music are you looking for and what do you plan to do with it?

    You can rip your CDs and create mp3's or, better, FLAC files. Help with downloading copyrighted music that you don't have any rights to is not supported under the Forum Rules.

    If a song is on YouTube, it's likely the rights holder is indifferent to its unauthorized redistribution. Some labels like Sony Music are very aggressive about forcing Google to "take down" their copyrighted materials on YouTube. Here's a particularly egregious example. Toei doesn't seem to care if you watch the entire show on YouTube, but Sony won't let you listen to the closing song.

    Re: music

    As always, google is your friend for looking for legitimately free music. Look into soundcloud - there are a lot of indie artists who put their stuff up there, but there are a bigger names that do so as well. If you're looking for premium content out of the box, a spotify premium membership is hard to beat. For ensured offline solidarity, I buy my music from Google Play. Hopefully that gets you started in the right direction.

    Spotify is great when you know the songs you want to listen to. I haven't found it useful for discovering new music. I usually use Pandora to find new stuff.

    I typically use Pandora to find new artists and Spotify to listen to their catalogue.

    Re: music

    Downloading music is so 20th century...

    Install streamtuner and you will never look back.

    It also comes with streamripper, which can save songs without all the annoying advertisements and talk fo playing in a car or offline portable.
