My belief is we need to download all the Free & Legal music mp3s we can, now, before the RIAA and other scumbags try to stop it altogether.

Free samples generate sales, this is what RIAA can't imagine, they are so greedy. They don't want anyone handing out any free samples.

There are so many new bands, and old bands, out there. How can you possibly decide what to buy, if you are looking for a new sound, a new group, a new sonic product?

The free sample is the bedrock of democracy and ethical capitalism.

I just now discovered that amazon, from the home page, has a list of Most Popular Downloads. Some of my PICKS are on that list.

One way I discover new music, and I've been liking almost everything I find, is by typing random words into the amazon dot com Search Music Downloads text entry box.

Words like "angel", "satellite", "fire", "robot", "computer", etc.
