I was just crawling through Last.FM’s Free MP3-section
, and noticed their year-tags for the 60s through the 90s. It’s obvious that a lot of stuff is just simply tagged wrong, but I’ve found the odd number that really belongs there. In the 70s category, I’ve discovered one of my favorite Oldies:
Still a cool song after all these years, don’t you think? A bit less cool (infact… downright stupid) is this one here from the 80’s section:
Here’s the proof that the 80s brought us some really crappy stuff indeed. And this here doesn’t make it better…:
I couldn’t really find anything decent in the 80s section; looks like the “big hits” are ashamed of being in the same category as these two crimes. Well, at least the 90’s had better stuff. Here’s one song from Marillion‘s masterpiece Brave:
Marillion – The Great Escape
And I’ve just noticed that they also offer a free download from their latest album, Happiness Is The Road
. Here it is:
Marillion – This Train Is My Life
I bet there’s tons of more good stuff hidden in Last.FM‘s archive, but it just takes some time to find those gems inbetween all the rubbish that’s floating around there. If you’ve found anything worth listening to, let me know in the comments. And yeah, of course it should be available as a free download! 🙂
Last.FM constantly proves to be a good source for new music with all its recommendations, and other than on MySpace, the free downloads really work with no trouble at all. So I’ve scrolled through my FreeMP3-recommendation-list this week, and here are just a few of the worthy songs I’ve found.
Office – Double Penetrate The Market (MP3)
Cool indie-rock from Chicago
Here’s a round-up of some pretty good, free songs that Last.FM recommended to me… check them out, you might find something that you’ll like, too!
Haven’t really had time to listen to some new music to recommend you, so I just give you a few gems from Last.FM‘s latest free download charts!
Of Montreal – Disconnect The Dots
(you really have to turn up the volume here… makes the song even more enjoyable!!!)
Circa Survive – The Great Golden Baby
(never heard of them before, but this really is a great song! Feel free to give me more infos on this band! 🙂 )
The Essex Green – Our Lady In Havana
(the band name seemed somewhat familiar, and it was a good choice to listen to this one. Wonderful voice!)
Viola – Lovelights
(an old familiar; downloaded this one a few months ago, and remember liking it. Nice pop tune that deserves to be played again!)
Kind Of Girl – Poetry Boy
(just saying… if you’re familiar with my blog, you should know them, if not: GET TO KNOW THEM NOW!!!)
Queen – ’39
(wow… who put that epic on Last.FM? This is one of their best songs that should even appeal to Queen-haters… give it a try, Morten! 😉 )
Grandaddy – Elevate Myself
(never really found time to get into the music of Grandaddy… a mistake probably?)
Hope to write something more substancial soon, just feeling a bit too lazy lately… sorry ’bout that!
Morten has a very good posting about Last.FM‘s weekly free download charts. I completely agree to what he has to say about it, and I also think that it’s a very good thing. So to increase the popularity of that chart list, I’m gonna spread the word about it as well. Visit the site, download what you like and give the bands a thumbs-up for offering their songs to us for free. Let your favourites climb up the charts!
Here are my tipps for you:
Of Montreal – Disconnect The Dots
Kind Of Girl – Slave To Your Charms
The Figurines – The Wonder
Sambassadeur – Kate
Detroit Cobras – I Wanna Holler
