MixTurtle is another of those music sites that I don’t understand how they can operate legally in the face of copyright laws. All you have to do is type in the name of a recording artist or a song, and you immediately get links to hear many songs, you can then create playlists and share them with others.
I typed in “Raffi,” who is always my “test” on these kinds of applications, and seemed to get more choices than I’ve found on the other similar web tools (you can see a list of them under Movies and Music For ESL on my website).
If these kind of sites are not blocked by school content filters, and if, as many posts from blogs far bigger than mine are right and these sites are legally and morally defensible, they can be a source of great music for ESL instruction.
I learned about MixTurtle from the Mashable blog.
