Default downloading music

what do you guys use to download music? I became dependent on limewire, then youtube converter, but that's just not efficient. I tried downloading music using torrents but I could never find a song I wanted. is there a specific torrent site you use to download with large selection, or any other method? help!

and there are so many songs not documented in those crap data bases. What if we want a song from the early 20th century? sometimes you're forced to...

either way, it's a new world, pirating practically everything is up now, and considering they make more money off other ventures, i.e gigs, it's basically free advertising, better for them. itunes is apple being greedy yet again, they take a cut you know..

pretty sure stuff from the early 20th century is free. download away.

the rest is just you making yourself feel better. it's like saying that stealing candy from 7-11 is OK because they make more money off of smokes. puh-leeze.

In the Philippines, they have a law now that they can arrest people who illegally download copyrighted materials. They are the first in the world to do such thing. The Philippine government are colonizing the internet and this law (called Cybercrime Act) is worse than PIPA and SOPA. On this Act, it includes libel, and people who criticize or bash an individual (particularly gov't officials) on the internet like on your personal blog or social-networking site. Other parties who click the "Like" button could also be grounds for libel.

Anyways, it's not illegal to download in Canada as long as it's only for personal use, am I right?

its the same in France and Australia has something similar. its a 3 strike system I think. the police have visited my friends before.

sharing is the problem and thats when they catch you. being a host or seeding.

Fuck, I miss the days when I could go to google, type the name of the song + mediafire or hulkshare and the first link that shows up would be a download link to the song.

I use Headphones to manage and download all of my music for me: https://github.com/rembo10/headphones

It then downloads what I want from NZBMatrix and Waffles.fm.
