    I've got an account with iTunes and emusic.com. Paying for music is a non-issue with me. As a fellow artist/composer, I feel compelled to pay for music that I enjoy.

    However, most of the music that I enjoy isn't available on "paysites." I'm reduced to youtube and other free places to find the music I like. Aside from not being able to financial support my favorite artists, I'm also not able to download the high quality versions of the music I enjoy. This is stupid.

    So, if you're a composer who wants to become famous, please find a manager who'll put your music on sites that not only charge, but allow for high quality downloads.

    This thread was inspired by a song I just heard on internet radio that I tried to download (from a paysite on which I'm a paying member) and I couldn't find it...except on youtube.

    Some prefer to be independent. A google search will usually uncover them. Send them an email and ask for a high quality mp3. No reason to go to any huge expense.

    This is true, some artist have their own pages and links to their recordings. A good artist is worth searching for, unless they've disbanded and deleted their music icon_confused.gif, they should relatively easy to find.
    You write music, Paul? icon_surprised.gif

    Did you check below the video on YouTube to see if there was link to a download of the song? Often those are free downloads.

    Post a thread and bitch about it. That's the natural order of things.

    I used to write music, but haven't done anything with it lately...except when I'm drunk and bored. icon_lol.gif
