Why download music online?
Downloading music online is becoming more and more popular. You do not have to wait around for stores to open to get your favourite tracks.
You can get them downloaded instantly on your PC or laptop, and then transfer them to your audio mp3 players.
If you like to share music files, then sharing the free ones that you find is just the same as sharing any other type of music that you may download.

Hearing the song's excerpt
Another benefit of downloading music online is that you often get a chance to hear a short excerpt of the song, before you buy it. This avoids the problem of searching for music that you weren't exactly sure of the title. It also gives you a chance to sample some music that you might not have listened to otherwise. Most of these audio clips are sections taken from the main parts of the song, usually the first verse and the chorus. They usually last from ten seconds to anywhere up to a minute.
