In today’s society, music is a huge part of everyday life. It helps with stress, it’s calming, people use it for exercise, and in many ways music just helps us get through the day. Buying CDs from a store or songs off of certain programs can become expensive and a hassle. Luckily, technology today has made music so easily accessible and free for anyone to use. This is the really appealing part of accessing music off websites. No matter where you are you can listen to any music for free, whether that be from the computer or a mobile device.

Myplay is a pretty good website for accessing music. When you first get on the website there is so many different options to find music you can choose from. You can go by playlist, artist or search for specific songs. When you click on an artist or song a pop up screen comes up with a whole list of songs from that artist. This is a really cool feature but its not good for variety. You have to exit the pop out window then type in a different song to find it, which is kind of a hassle. So just shuffling through specific kinds of music isn’t an option. This site is free but not sure if it can be used on mobile.

Playlistnow.fm is a very useful website for music. When you first get on the site is asks what you are doing, you can put in “I am studying, eating, exercising etc.” and then a whole playlist with hundreds of songs will pop up that pertain to what you typed in and you can play through the songs. You can further describe the search in this “studying, eating, exercising or etc” playlist by typing in a certain artist. What I really like about this site is you can switch between songs whenever you want and the song and artist are put right there, so you have a choice. If you make an account you can save certain playlists and share and create your own playlists. This site is also cool because when you play a song a video on the side comes up that plays the YouTube video for that song. This site is also free, but I am not sure you can access it from a mobile device or not.

Pandora is an awesome website if you are interested in listening to any type of music you prefer! If you are training for a half marathon and want some pump up music, you just simply type in a certain artist that you know or a specific genre, like pop, and a new station will appear with songs that will just be pop songs. Another great feature of Pandora is the “skip” and “thumbs down” option. If you don’t feel like listening to a song then you can simple skip to a new one, and if you don’t like it then you can click the thumbs down and Pandora will automatically discard the song and any other similar to it. This leads to the other great feature of Pandora, the more music you listen to and put a thumbs up or thumbs down, the more Pandora gets to know your taste in music and will shuffle through song it thinks you like in that genre. Bookmarking songs is also an option, so if you want to remember that song later it will be there. Pandora is free, which is great and can be accessed from computer or mobile device. The only downside of Pandora is you are only allowed an certain amount of skips per hour and because it is free there are ads that will interrupt the music every so many songs. This seems to be only a minor set back of the site though.
