Last.fm - Free On Demand Streaming Music
If you live in the US, UK, or Germany, Last.fm launched a service that will likely interest you (the rest of the world will need to wait about 90 days). Starting today you can listen to music from Universal Music Group, Sony/BMG, Warner, EMI, and more than 150,000 indie labels and distributors including CD Baby, IODA, the Orchard, and Naxos. This is a huge win for those of us who love our music, because it means that just about anything you might want to listen to is available from Last.fm, whether you forgot your iPod at home or not. The catch is you can only listen to any one track 3 times before you'll be prompted to purchase the track, but for samplers like me, who simply want to hear a few new tracks to see if we like them or not, it's a great alternative to buying an album we hate. Registration is required to start listening.
