Free Music From Amazon

Free Music Amazon

As Hiffer Bethany put it, here's a ton of free music on Amazon from bands and people I've never heard of. But still, free is free and there are over 200 songs here. If I can find one or two to keep in my playlist, I'll count that as a victory!

Heck, if I go 2 for 200 in anything, I consider it a win. That might explain why I always struggled making a baseball team after tee-ball.

The funny thing is that since I started HIF a decade ago, I've download thousands of free songs then promptly forget about them. Months later, iTunes will shuffle past one and it's like a brand new discovery. “Hey, I've never heard this before! Cool, new music!”

What can I say, I get excited over small things. If I find a quarter on the ground, it's easily the highlight of my week.

  1. If you have a library card (and your library participates) you can get 5 free song downloads a week from the Freegal Music website. They don’t have all songs but many of them are well-known/popular (ex: Carrie Underwood/Train/WALK THE MOON/Camila Cabello).

    You just sign in with your library card and you can select options like having them email you a reminder each week that the 5 free song limit has reset and you can download some more. My biggest problem is continuing to find songs that I want…so far I have 195! Just a warning that their search function is not the best.

  2. Fleet Foxes and the Head and the Heart are two of my favorites… I’ve heard of the few of the others, but I’d say there’s a great shot of going at least 2/23 πŸ™‚

  3. Portia, just go to the website Goob or Adam links to. There will be a form where you put in your name and address and any other relevant information. If it’s a Facebook freebie, you’ll usually need to “like” the company giving away the freebie before the form to fill out your info shows up. I hope this helps.

  6. JW, I’m on a Mac 10.4 and Amazon asks that you download a small program called “Amazon MP3 Downloader” that takes care of the downloads for you. It’ll then put the music in iTunes as well.

  7. Can anyone offer help, downloading to mac running 10.4? I keep thinking I’ve downloaded it but can’t find any music files where they say they should be, and they’re not going to itunes like the last time I downloaded from amazon. What am doing wrong???
