Aside from iTunes, what options exist for (legally) downloading music files that can be played on an iPod?

Asked by kevin (24 points ) November 9th, 2006
And any recommendations based upon music selection / subscription options / time involved?

if you're into indie stuff, emusic.com is good and seems to be getting better -- more deals with better/bigger indie labels. they're about to increase their subscription fee so now's a good time to sign up. $10/mo = 45 songs/mo.

and for electronica, bleep.com kicks ass. also fakescience.com isn't bad.

You have a few options, you can download from many sites. The main thing is finding a program that will let you copy music to your ipod w/o itunes. I use iPodRip.

Amazone’s MP3 store is a great experience and often times cheaper than iTunes. Songs are all DRM free and will import directly to iTunes and play perfectly on your iPod.
