Listen to music on the Web with Musicovery

By July 18, 2007

Follow me on:

One of my favorite ways to listen to music on the Web while I'm working is Musicovery, an interactive Web radio station. Here's some of the best features:
  • You can choose to listen to hits, non-hits, or discover new music that you've never heard before.
  • You can choose your decade - from the 50's up to the current day.
  • What kind of mood are you in? Change your musical selections to Dark, or Energetic, or Positive, or Calm.
  • Musicovery also gives you the ability to choose your tempo and choose a genre; anything from jazz to disco.

Once you start playing a song, you have the option of buying it yourself at eBay, Amazon, or other online shopping outlets. Musicovery is a great way to enjoy some of the best music out there for free on the Web.

More Music Online

Free Music Downloads: Free downloadable music on the Web really does exist; as long as you're willing to listen to music other than what's on the radio and top 40 (for the most part). Here are a few places on the Web where you can find free music downloads at Free Downloadable Music.

Free MP3 Music Download at GarageBand: One of the best places on the Web that I've found to find great independent music and free MP3 downloads is at GarageBand, a great indie music online community.

Pandora: Pandora is a free way to listen to music online, but not just ANY music. You create your own radio stations, you choose which music will actually be played on those stations, so if something comes up that makes your ears want to bleed, you can tell Pandora to stop playing it (and they will apologize, too).

And lots more music: There's 100 Awesome Music Videos, music from TV commercials, Music-Map, a searchable, editable, and expandable collection of tunes, melodies, and musical themes at Musipedia, and free classical music downloads at Wikipedia.

Wonder why the developers abandon the tool. There’ve been no upgrade in ages.

You might also want to add imeem and iLike to the list.
