I’ve posted a few times recently about new sites that allow you to find and play music on-demand via the Internet. Most of these allow you to create playlists of your favorite songs. I still have questions about copyright issues, but they’re being written and talked about everyplace I see without that mentioned being as a problem, so I guess somehow it’s all legit.
I use music a lot when I teach English Language Learners, and I’ve been able to find quite a few of the songs I use on these sites. They’re not available for download, but I assume (correct me if I’m wrong) they could be legally played in the classroom like a CD.
Songza is another new similar site, and appears to be the biggest. TechCrunch reports it now has a library of 28 million songs. I typed in Raffi’s name, and got far more “hits” in Songza than I received in any of the other streaming music sites I’ve reviewed.
