Top 5 Free Music Websites

1) Youtube.com

Try the autoplay feature to listen to a playlist for hours of viewing or hearing.

2) Vevo.com

This website has all the top artists or most of them listed. You login using your Gmail, Twitter or Facebook login and simply

listen to any playlist you want or create your own. Also has a recommended playlist option.

3) Yahoo Music

http://new.music.yahoo.com/

I like this for the extensive information on the artists available and also many videos here are allowed to be embeded which sometimes is not the case for the same video /artist on other websites.

4) Playlist.com

Good Features-

Custom URL for your personal playlist.

Tremendous variety of music artists and songs.

You can also embed the playlist on your blog/ website allowing it to autoplay- a really neat feature.

Bad Features-

Lack of Customization as regards to recommended songs and incomplete integration with Facebook /Social Logins

5) Pandora.com

Nice features- ability to share what you are listening on social media

Custom algol that is very good in creating an automatic playlist based on music you are listening. ( I hole Youtube and Yahoo music have this feature soon)

Some additional features like extensive information on song/artist/album playing.

Moving Music from Ipod

Using the Rhythmbox utility- you can move your music from your Ipod to your computer and also transfer to some other device using USB. The Method is simple-

Use your Linux Operating System ( if you have a Windows PC- you can create a dual booting application using the USB Flash Drive Netbook Remix from http://www.ubuntu.com )

Use Rhythmbox to open your IPod.

Drag and Drop the song from the Rhythmbox playlist to your device/ computer or other device after it is copied.

Note- It is not really advised to illegeally transfer music, as there are better options like streaming music already available. Try http://www.playlist.com and see right margin of the other blog I have for building the playlist using online means- www.dudeofdata.com

Using Ipod and Iphone with your Ubuntu Laptop

If you love your  Apple iPhone / iPod, the latest release of Ubuntu from Canonical called Karmic Koala ( the counter part to Microsoft’s Windows 7) is totally compatible for USB connection

If you love your  Apple iPhone / iPod, the latest release of Ubuntu from Canonical called Karmic Koala ( the counter part to Microsoft’s Windows 7) is totally compatible for USB connection.

Ubuntu uses Rhythmbox for playing songs and uses FSpot and Gimp for images. The audio quality is excellent ( even if you are using very old hardware like I do) and Gimp is the best image manipulation software -comparable to ones from Adobe- intuitive and easy.
