    Grooveshark is my last resort, after the demise of Dizzler.

    Well i'm always using iTunes if I find a song I like, but for finding music I use grooveshark, I used to use spotify when it first came out but all the ads and restrictions have become too annoying so grooveshark Is the way to go!
     
  4. None of them. You find more music on Youtube. And it's free.

    But YouTube is generally rubbish quality and takes up more bandwidth?

    Well, the quality varies yes, but you can change the quatity on most of them, but then again, the downside is it does takes more bandwith. but what can you expect? its free.
     
  8. I use this superb service called 'The Pirate Bay' to try out new music, then buy the good stuff as mp3s.

    I hadn't bought new music in 10 years before this site because of the cost/dross ratio.

    The music industry must love all the free marketing, I wonder why I haven't seen any TV adverts for it yet?

    YouTube generally has all the interesting music, in my opinion. I tried Spotify, but it offered none of my favourite music :( - guess I'm just unlucky.

    I use Pandora for random music, as far as specific stuff, I amassed quite a hoard back in the day, and can usually find what I need there.
     
  15. The radio is my favorite music service :p

    That wooden box with a couple of dials in it, rocks big time though.

    Pandora does it wonderfully for me, Im happy with what comes on my channels :) Its like $40 a year for 192kbps and no ads. Grooveshark looks good and I've used it before, its cool because you can actually choose all the music you want to listen to and make a playlist. But Pandora I can put on a generally forget about it. Its convenient and provides a good variety and mix of music depending on what channel I throw on.

    Pandora is my favorite. I hate finding songs to listen to, or making playlists. Pandora does the work for me and it knows the songs I like even if I never heard it before.
     
  23. As wasteful as your quote?
     
  24. tunein.com internet radio. Always new always fresh with the latest in any genre.
