Grooveshark hits the mark
Grooveshark is an online music service that allows you to sample different music for free (or pay a small fee for the ad-free version). Fresh from a legal settlement, Grooveshark’s audience is growing daily. The LA Times points out that Grooveshark is about enabling people to sample and discover new music artists, giving folks the ability to share their discoveries with friends.
With an easy-to-use interface, a very good search engine, and a great recommendation system, Grooveshark has the potential to keep you exploring music on your computer way too long.
According to Wikipedia, Grooveshark doesn’t have any Beatles music. But it does have quite an extensive catalog. Also, it has more than just music. I just finished listening to Bill Cosby’s Revenge. I hadn’t heard that since I was a little girl. It was just as funny all these (many) years later!
