Where to download songs?
« on: April 28, 2014, 01:43:58 PM »
I need to download a bunch of songs for a class on the history of blues, rock and such in America. My usual go-to site, Baidu, is being silly and suddenly requires a membership. I need to find a good, reliable site where you can swiftly search and download songs. Not a place like demonoid, extratorrent and similar. Any suggestions. I tried Kugou and found it lacking in older tunes.

If you can get on the VPN with your mobile device [iPad, phone, etc.] I highly recommend Spotify. You can stream darn near any song. There's a low monthly fee, 8-10$ usd I believe.

Additionally, there are sites that let you "rip" music off of youtube. I haven't used one recently so I'm not sure which to recommend.

Other than that I'm not sure where one can download single songs. You can probably get a torrented album rather quickly.

I'm a Chicago boy myself - make 'em listen to it twice for me. :)

If you wanna annoy them play some Iggy and the Stooges or Black Sabbath's first album, or any Motorhead - solid modern rock fundamentals.

It might be a good idea to get one of those big compilation torrents, it's awesome having 1gb of songs from a genre in one folder

For Blues btw, there is an amazing series of films made by the top US directors just called 'The Blues'

Kickass torrents have everything I think.I got some great stuff there, Professor Longhair boogie woogie piano, and some Bluenote Records compilations.
