I have a very eclectic taste when it comes to music. I like everything from folk to reggae to techno. There is SO much music out there and if you're not actively searching for it, good music can be hard to find. So how do you find good music? You certainly won't find it on 95% of the radio stations. Before Myspace became sleezy I used to find lots of underground and unsigned bands there but got tired of all the nonsense that came along with that site. Last.fm is a site I frequent in order to find similar artists to what I already like. But in the last few months my favourite music sharing site has been Blip.fm.
Blip.fm is a free, online music discovery service that enables person-to-person music recommendation through a social playlist. You can search for your desired track or artist, preview the track, then blip it with a brief message.
What I love about Blip.fm is that it is a community of music lovers, like myself, who just love to listen to and share music. I've discovered several new favourites thanks to various Blip DJs. You can recommend songs to listeners, you can dedicate songs to friends and the best part about it is it's FREE! So if you have not checked out this very cool site then you should do it now! :) Check out my music set while you're there...my DJ name is TheLuckiest1 Add me as a favourite DJ so I can do the same and start following your music thread! I can never get enough music! :)
