I love music. It’s one of my favorite things.

But what do you do if, like me, you don’t have the money to pay to download music from iTunes or Amazon?

Well, there are some great services that you can stream music from for free.

Here are my top 3 favorite services.

  1. Grooveshark
  • Hands down, my favorite service to listen to music on.
  • Making an account is free, or you can connect with Facebook/Twitter.
  • Truly unlimited music streaming. No limits to how much you can listen.
  • The only limitations are:

2.   MOG

  • Streams very high quality music
  • Can create an account, or use Facebook to sign up
  • Much more limited than Grooveshark. You are given a limit on how many songs you can listen to for free. You can either pay to access more music, or you can add playlists/recommend it to friends to get more free plays.

3.   Spotify

  • Huge library of music on Spotify, if you like it, they probably have it.
  • Free to create an account, or can use Facebook to connect.
  • Spotify is also much more limited than Grooveshark. It’s only available as downloadable software for your computer or mobile device, and to get the most out of it, you have to pay a monthly subscription. The free service is still great though!

If you’d like more information, here’s an infographic that explains more about the services.

Next week is Purdue’s spring break, so this is my last post until Monday, March 19.

Have a great week everyone!
