1 million free and legal music tracks – announcing the relaunch of our favorite section for y’all [Freeware]

Long time readers will know that way back in Nov 2003 we launched a section of the site which listed a large number of sources of free and totally legal music tracks you could download and keep. The fact is that streaming music is all well and good, but there’s nothing to beat creating your own collection of great music on your device, which you can listen to anytime and anywhere, without having to rely on an Internet connection.

The section, which we call 1 Million Free And Legal Music Tracks, continued to grow as more sources came online, but now ten years later, it really needed a refresh to reflect the modern state of the web and browsers. And so it has come to pass, peeps. We have sadly had to move away from the wiki format, because it was too unwieldy to manage, but hopefully the fact that it is now integrated properly with our main site should allow for more cool options in the future.

So our new Free Music section now features a bang up to date Pinteresty (such an awkward word, eh?) type design with thumbnail images of the sites on offer, which should hopefully make it much easier for folks to get an idea of what music is available where. Surprisingly enough, despite the dramatic changes that have happened over the past decade, there’s still a huge amount of free and respectably legal music around for us to download. The delivery vehicles may have changed – for example Soundcloud is now a firm part of the landscape – but the vibe goes on.

Anyway, we hope you like and enjoy the new format, and please feel free to let us know if there’s anything we can do to make it better. Also if you have any suggestions for music sites and services to add to the mix, again don’t hesitate to let us know. If you’re one of the thousands of good people who have linked to this section in the past, please feel free to update your information to reflect the move away from the wiki format.
