Now, i've heard a stack about massive MP3 libraries online... and being able to get any song you want for free and all that.
My opinion is, it's up to the artist to decide how she wants to distribute her music. If she happens to think that she should give away her art for free, all the better for us.
passed me on to SomaFM
, where I can hook into a constant stream of nice music, very handy for doing repetitive item-creation-type tasks at work.
It's not quite mum and dad style, but hey.
