The Truth About Downloading Music
There are so many myths about downloading music, many people are apprehensive about even trying it. Learning the facts about the legality, the ease and economic sense of downloading music will take the scare factor out of it for you.
The biggest myth that rotates around the web is that downloading music is illegal. It's true there are websites and services that engage in the practice of offering illegal downloads of music. Using a service you know is legal will enable you to build an digital music collection legally and there are no copyright infringements or potential lawsuits to worry about.
Another myth that many people buy into is that downloading music is difficult or requires a lot of technical skill. Again, it's just not true. For the huge majority of download services all you need it a computer with an Internet connection, preferably a high-speed connection to make your downloads even faster, a program on your computer to play your downloaded music on such as Rhapsody or Media Player and for making your downloaded music portable, an MP3 player such as an iPod will complete everything you need to enjoy your downloaded tunes to the fullest. Most computers come with a CD-burner so you can burn any CD's that you'd like to have handy.
To download music you simply need to visit the website you want to download music from, find the artist or artists you want to download and click. You will then be asked to purchase the songs and then taken automatically to a download page or in some cases the download will begin immediately upon payment. Once downloaded, you can double click the songs to listen to them on your computer or you can open your MP3 panel and download the tunes you just got onto your portable device or burn yourself a CD.
The third big myth about downloading music is that it's expensive. Actually when you consider the economics of it, downloading music is in reality a very smart choice when you consider the price of purchasing an entire CD. Consider when the last time your favorite artist produced a CD that didn't have at least two throw-away songs on it. Why pay for those? The beauty of downloading music online is that you can usually preview the songs you're considering purchasing and you can pick and choose the songs you want to hear.
Another way people utilize downloading music is to create their own mixes using collections from artists or a collection of songs to create theme with the downloaded music. If you use an iPod when you work out, consider creating yourself a collection of tunes that will keep your motivated during your work outs. Many bride-to-be's on a tight budget have downloaded their music for the reception and rented a state-of-the-art stereo system instead of a DJ to play the music they want to set and keep the mood for their wedding receptions along with getting exactly the songs they want, also saving a ton of money.
Did you once have a record collection that was your pride and joy? Many people lament music collections that they have lost due to relationships breaking up, moves or needed money and sold. Digital downloads are a fantastic way to recreate your favorite songs from the artists you used to collect.
Also, if you're having a party or other social gathering, you can log in to your favorite place to download music and snatch up the latest tunes to create a mix for the night of the hottest music that's out instead of spending hundreds of dollars on CD's that will only have a few songs worth listening to each.
And there you have the facts. Downloading music is legal, easy and very affordable. If you haven't started putting together a list of "must have music" already, start thinking about all the songs you want to hear and get into the swing of downloading your music now and in the future.
