    There's always Shareaza. Remember that you can only download songs that you own. :suspiciou

    A friendly word of warning about downloading songs - it's not just the P2P download software that is giving you spyware and viruses - it could be the very files you're downloading onto your computer! Just visit a few "hacker's" web-sites and see how easy it is to wrap a worm, virus or backdoor-trojan into an MP3 of AVI file. You might be put off downloading songs when you see how easy it is and what can actually be done by these applications once they're on your PC! :)
