After a decade fighting to stop illegal file-sharing, the music industry will give fans today what they have always wanted: an unlimited supply of free and legal songs. With CD sales in free fall and legal downloads yet to fill the gap, the music industry has reluctantly embraced the file-sharing technology that threatened to destroy it. Qtrax, a digital service announced today, promises a catalogue of more than 25 million songs that users can download to keep, free and with no limit on the number of tracks. The service has been endorsed by the very same record companies - including EMI, Universal Music and Warner Music – that have chased file-sharers through the courts in a doomed attempt to prevent piracy. The gamble is that fans will put up with a limited amount of advertising around the Qtrax website’s jukebox in return for authorised use of almost every song available.

My neice who is in Brooklyn has been giving this information but I was hesitant to open this site thinking that it is piracy and I was not keen on piracy. But then my newphew made scores of lovely cds of old vintage songs, country songs of US and it is simply marvellous. Rummage this site ,you might find even malaysian songs too. Have a wonderful time.
