Microsoft gives away 1000 song titles away free
I can't remember for the life of me where I first saw this, or I would surely credit the source (lifehacker? gizmodo?), but in any event MS [is giving away 1000 + songs] fo' NO MONEY! You can download them and also listen to them online. What's the catch? Isn't one, just ads on the site. Cool beans.
I know. It's Microsoft. I know. Shhhh. I know.
But. There's actually some good stuff there! There are some artists you've never heard of in your life, and some more well-known ones (like Lemonhead, to name the only example of a few that I could've thought of ten minutes ago. :-\ ). I love some of the songs I found in their electronica/dance section - I love ((HYDE)) by ORGAVIN and A Foresaken Few (no, that's not a typo) by OC Lovely. There really does seem to be something for everyone, though.
Get them here!
