Soulseek is the only way to go. It's really easy to use and pretty much always finds what you are looking for.
Kazaa is rubbish in my opinin.

I agree when one is talking about buying an entire album. There is currently little point in downloading it. But I think 79p for the odd track is fine. They are of relative high sound quality and it doesn't fill one's PC full of viruses etc.

Wouldn't touch that encrypted crap!!! What if I want to use them on something other than an ipod??? Yes they can be hacked but rather defeats the object!!!

Roll on the day when you can download straight from the band's own website and all the royalties go straight to them - cut out the corrupt middlemen!!!

People get too hung up on that 'what if I want to use it on something other than an iPod. iTunes do have DRM on them but, hey, so what. You *own* the music and you can burn up to 10 CDs for yourself and friends. You can play the music on up to 5 differnet computers too.

There is enough scope in the DRM restrictons for most people and iPods work so well with iTunes, it is the most elegant solution available at the moment.

Where are you searching?

212 returns for songs by Madonna and a multitude of others with other people on my Napster.

For 10 a month for unlimited downloads to PC and live streaming (15 pm if you want to put it on a player) I don't think you can go wrong.
