I want to listen to music online, not the radio streams but something like search-and-listen eg on demand. I tried Grooveshark but it doesn't find what I want and crashes my Chrome sometimes, also it's browser based and I use my browser for work and that sometimes crashes it to.

NIT Player was a good alternative, But I think they have blocked my country recently as I can't seem to be able to search for music there anymore. Actually it's much better then Grooveshark for me as it finds everything (including Swedish music) and is really lightweight, not overloaded with pointless features like social networking. I don't want the world to know what I'm listening to I just want something simple like NIT Player.

Any suggestions?

This question came from our site for computer enthusiasts and power users.

Spotify is the best I have found. Not free (unless you get introduced by someone), but they do have very up-to-date music on there.

It's "free" in that way you can listen to music, but their are commercial breaks every 20 minutes or so. but they have a lot of music... – Alvar Mar 25 '11 at 9:47
Maybe Spotify is cool.. but you can use it only in few countries..: spotify.com/int/why-not-available – Lipis Mar 25 '11 at 11:29

Try vkmusic. It's a very good software for searching, listening and downloading music.
