try a file sharing programme. kazaa lite is the best iv found but there others like imesh or morpheus. do a google search for them and follow the links. best of luck.

peoplesound.com was pretty innovative with their selection.

Becareful with filesharing utilities as most music files available will have some copyright issues.

Looks OK for a good starting point for me.

Beware too of the spyware etc attached to Kazza - it can be difficult to remove.

If you want to try kazaa then beware ,kazaa lite has been scuppered by legal action by sharman networks who own kazaa on copyright grounds(this is a bit rich given the nature of whats available over the kazaa network!).

The free version of kazaa is riddled with embedded spyware and adware.Also make sure your antivirus software is up to date as p2p networks are one of the best sources of virus infections.

If you dont want the spyware goto kazaalite. it does the same but none of the bad stuff. iv used it for years and never had a problem with it. Silence is golden, but it sounds better with music
