You're on this site, so that means you've taken the wiser choice to not pay iTunes nearly all your allowance to download music! But if you're still feeling a bit lost, this post should help you.

What options are there for buying music from this site?
There are six cheap mp3 download sites to chose from here, all offering and specialising in something different. So lets look at who's giving you what:

MP3 Panda, MP3Skyline and LegalSounds are all now closed down. However, there are loads of new sites around. Check out the best ones on our review page.

I want cheap music! The site offering the cheapest mp3s is MP3 Panda. All songs on the site are 5¢ each so you can get whole albums for $0.50 easily. I want loads of choice! MP3Skyline is the site for you then, with the largest music library containing over 3,387,120 songs, all priced at just 15¢ each. I want free songs! LegalSounds offer a free song everyday. This can be found on their homepage and is a song of their choice. This is the best option if you're after free songs. I want free albums!  MP3 Panda are the best site for this, you can download a free album everyday from the site. As with LegalSounds, the album is of their choice and can be found on the homepage.

I want to try a site out! 
The best sites for trying out the service are MP3va, Soundike and MP3Million. MP3va and Soundike give you a massive 30¢ when you register! It may not seem like much, but it's enough for two songs on the site of your choice so you can test their service. MP3 Million are probably the better option though, as they give you 10 free songs to play with after registration. (See more of Free Trials
