Rhapsody - UNLIMITED Access - FREE Trial!!

Have you checked out Rhapsody yet? Its an online music service - with a great twist - UNLIMITED listening!

Here's the gig - for $9.95 per month you have access to over 30,000 artists, 50,000 albums and 700,000 songs (the numbers don't work out because some albums have limited access). I listen to over 100 different songs per day. I also like checking out different artists - listening to their WHOLE song - and not worrying about paying for it unless I want to keep it. I've checked out more music in the past few months than I have in the past 10 years. For the $9.95, you listen to unlimited number of songs on their site, create playlists of those songs, and are able to use your license from ANY Windows PC -- Rhapsody is not Mac compatible :( . You also have free access to videos (I am blown away at the quality of the streaming.) Figuring downloading songs is going to cost anywhere from .79 to .99 each, the $9.95 per month cost is equal to about 10 to 12 songs.

Rhapsody also lowered their price on downloaded songs to .49 per song. They did this before in 2003 - and cut it off a month later. So get in on it before it ends. (Yeah, yeah, this blog was created after they dropped their price - but that's why I started doing this - to let you know who's got the deals.) Even when Rhapsody's price goes up to their normal .79 per song, they will still beat iTunes .99 per song.

The FREE stuff:
