Best 4 Places to Stream Music Legally

Since the advent of the MP3 player and iPod devices, people have been able to take their music with them everywhere they go. But naturally, we become accustomed to access music at all times and eventually we get bored with our own small collections. If you’re not particularly tech savvy, or have a penchant for abiding by the law, here are the top five sites that can help expand your musical experience by streaming musical legally over your cellular network or WiFi.

  1. Pandora was first on the scene with its music streaming program, allowing members to access genres, albums, songs, and new music similar to their preferences. With a customized app, members can select the music they are most likely to listen to, like or dislike music that Pandora plays, and select artists or albums to further explore. Pandora offers a paid membership, where members can select any song or album and play in the order they desire, rather than having a random selection chosen for you, like free members experience.
  1. Spotify was second on the scene, and there is a little bit of a “turf war” going on between Pandora and this up-and-comer. Spotify users prefer Spotify because you can select playlists already designed by Spotify builders, or public playlists members create and share. You can save songs to your own “music folder” to access later, and the Spotify Spotlight has more focus on new music than Pandora. Paid members can also access their music from anywhere without the need for a network connection. It is essentially like you own all the music you want without paying for each individual song.
  1. Google Play also features a streaming music service, which allows users to create their own radio stations and even upload their own music to the Cloud. You can save up to 20,000 of tracks from your iTunes account for free, making this a great option for people who don’t want to lose their collection. Google Play offers a mobile app that allows users to select tracks or albums they want to listen to on-demand. However, it is a paid app and there are rarely promotions for a free trial, making it a more expensive option than the first two.
  1. Apple Music rounds out the list, providing “Genius” music comparisons on your current music collection, music you like when you stream, and providing you with curated content based on moods, artists, styles and setting. Of all the other streaming services, Apple Music provides the most customization options, and also provides unlimited access to the iTunes library- the largest music library in the digital world. You can also play unlimited iTunes Radio, and save music from the streaming service right to your device. This is the most expensive option, but there are a number of perks that cannot be found elsewhere.

legally-blonde-key-image-c-brian-geachIf price is your main motivation for streaming music, definitely go with Pandora Free or Spotify Free. You may have to deal with annoying ads and skip limits, but you still get access to great music for free. If you’re looking for access to new music or great features, Google Play or iTunes Music might be a better investment, especially since it’s like adding the music you like to your own library when you pay for the membership. Happy Streaming!

Why You Should Never Own Music


We all love the look of our music collection sitting on the shelf, don’t we? Or the number of scrolls it takes to get to the end of your music library on your computer or music player. We are musical beings, and we enjoy owning the things that make us most happy. But I’m here to tell that owning music is downright dumb, at least in today’s world.

Yes, I know, this is blasphemy. You can’t get vinyl sound quality and experience from an iPod! You can’t just sit there and look at streaming music covers all day while jamming out to your favorites. Where is the nostalgia? Calm down. We are merely saying that music is better used in today’s capacity streamed over a network or downloaded from the Cloud.

A mother gets a toy plane for his little boy. The boy loves his toy plane and flies it all over the house. One day, as the mother is in the kitchen doing the dishes, she hears her little boy saying, “vroom, vroom, vroom, all you mother fucking family strokers want to get on, get on. All you mother fucking people want to get off, get off. The mother fumes, rushes to the boy, confiscate the toy plane and keep it away.

Before you say that your music collection is so rare that you can’t find it anywhere online, double check. Have you been online lately? There is nothing you can’t find. If for some reason you can’t find your music on there, upload your collection to the World Wide Web and share with other folks who have equally excellent taste. Better yet, when you upload your music collection, you’re essentially making it immortal. No fire, hard drive crash, theft or crazy ex-girlfriend can prevent you from accessing your music from the Cloud.

The Cloud is a magnificent, illustrious thing that has been confusing parents and grandparents since its invention. Really, all you need to know is that your music is stored in a safe place and you can access it from any device. If you have an album you absolutely have to have, download it and save it to your Cloud. If you want to save your music collection and not take up your hard drive space, upload it all to the cloud. Then if anything happens to your music player, computer or physical collection, you don’t have to cry too long.


Streaming music is also one of the best inventions of our time for the music aficionado. You can explore brand new music and tell all your friends you heard the band online before they were famous. You can find classics and genres based on your mood. Essentially, you can curate a music library without ever going into debt or jamming up your hard drive. We’ve all been there- that new album you really want is obscenely expensive, or you have to decide which of your bands to cut from your iPod just so you have enough space. Don’t pick favorites, just pick a good streaming service.

Hopefully after reading this, you’re ready to ditch traditional music purchases. Sure, if you collect vinyl it may be a good idea to continue purchasing the physical album. However, thanks to new technology, you can save that music to the Cloud and access it wherever you go. Don’t be a hipster, and leave the record player at home.
