I kind of like The 61. It's a website targeted at people who want to discover new music. I found some pretty cool stuff there, but there's also lots of crappy songs. From what I know, it works without geographical limitations. I listen to it in Czech Republic without a problem.

I'd like to second the Grooveshark recommendation, though I either don't have enough points to comment on the original reply (or just don't know how). In any case, a key advantage to Grooveshark over Pandora is that you can play any song you want at any time, and can even replay it. Sometimes I get a song stuck in my head and I just want to hear it right ...

From the Pandora FAQ There are two types of skip limits: All Pandora listeners are limited to 6 skips per hour, per station. Listeners to the free Pandora service are limited to 12 total skips per day, across all stations. NOTE: The hourly limit is based on a rolling sixty-minute interval for each skip. So if you give four skips ...

Pandora (www.pandora.com) Pandora uses the Music Genome Project to find and play music you might like based on artists and pieces you tell it you already enjoy. You can then vote up or vote down individual songs, and it will learn what types of music you like and give you additional music that suits your tastes. Restrictions You cannot choose to play ...

Jamendo.com is your friend: they are a primary destination for CC-music. Edit: also thesixtyone.com has a separate section devoted to Creative Commons: http://old.thesixtyone.com/#/cc/

Listening to the song would have added it to your library. Think of your library as pretty much every song last.fm has counted as a "listen" or "scrobble". How these scrobbles are counted depends on which client you use to listen to them with. For example, the last.fm desktop client has a setting that lets you decide how much of a song you need to listen to ...

MusicBrainz is the most comprehensive database that I know of. It's not very user-friendly, though--it's just a raw database. Last.fm is a nice alternative, but it's not quite as comprehensive. Also, the content is mainly user-generated, which means there may be some mistakes in labeling. Still, it gives some cool statistics and has some other neat features ...

I would reccommend Bandcamp : Set a minimum price starting from 0$ or let people name their price Let people stream your music Design your page (no ads) Stats... enjoy!

Album Reminder will do this for you. It can read your favorite artists from iTunes or last.fm, or you can just enter them manually. Then it'll send you an email when one of those tracked artists releases something new. Or, if you prefer, you can subscribe to an RSS feed of reminders about those artists.

I wrote and asked about it to Pandora, this was the reply and it does work. When you want to edit your station in any way, roll-over the station you'd like to edit, click the arrow next to options, then select Station Details. On the station page, scroll down and you will see the Thumbs-up and Thumbs-down. By checking the x to the right of the song name, ...

I've bought from 7digital in the past. They provide tracks in DRM-free MP3 as well as AAC and WMA. There is a "Locker" where you can redownload songs that you've previously purchased.

Amazon offers this, but only for music. Also, as GAThrawn said, you can only download your purchase without proprietary software if it's a single track and not an album.

How do I verify my Page to use the Music Player? The process to upload music using the Facebook Music Player application has changed. In order to upload music to your Page using this application, you will need to provide an electronic signature to an agreement that confirms that you either own the copyright to the content you will be uploading or that you ...

YouTube reported that there was a copyright claim against my video. A claim not a violation. Music Publishing Rights Collecting Society is the generic name given to represent organizations that collect royalties for music. YouTube most likely has contracts with many collecting agencies and just clumped them under one name. It's just an indication that ...

Spotify is very good and has Last.Fm integration, but is not available outside of Europe yet

In the wake of Lala.com's demise, I was in a similar situation. Currently evaluating Rdio as a potential replacement. The selection isn't exceptional, but the web streaming works great, as does the iPhone app.

The closest you can do right now is to star/favorite your music. You click on the star icon next to the track and it'll go into your starred tracks (it is under Library/Starred). You might want to suggest this as a feature in Spotify's suggestion box.

LyricWiki isn't too bad, but I agree that song lyric websites are generally a horrible ad-infested wasteland on the internet. http://lyrics.wikia.com/ (this used to be lyricwiki.org)

Artists of songs without a CC license have opted for all rights to be reserved. So if you do not see something similar to the following (Creative Commons license icons below the genre): Then all rights are reserved.

I like slacker radio. Pretty sure you can use it anywhere, I'm in Canada and it works for me!

There's we7 which streams music free, I don't believe there are any country/region restrictions

You can: create a regular playlist, name it TO-LISTEN-LATER or something similar send or drag'n'drop track to this playlist. Later you'll listen to these tracks and decide what to do with them (remove, move to other playlist, etc). I know it's obvious, so I'm guessing you don't like something about this idea. Let me know what it is.
