How can I love music without getting in debt?
 
hi all

I really love music of all genres and styles, and I mean ALL styles. But I recently looked at my bank account balance to find I had spent way too much on music downloads and CDs. How can I still listen to great music from different genres without going bankrupt or going all illegal???

Regards

Just download music and never look back. Those artists don't give a Dick Van Dyke about it and the FBI won't come a'knockin at your door. If something really impresses you or if an artist if independent or on a small label then buy their stuff.

Move to the UK. Use Spotify.

Is this thread brought to you by teh 90s?

BTW I'm still paying off debt from buying too many CDs in the 90s and early 00s.

There was a time I'd buy eveything available. I'd purchase three or four albums weekly, back in the days when I had the funds to support my habit. I have to admit that I have spent thousands of dollars over the years, I had more music than I could possible imagine. Lps, 45s, cassettes, 8-tracks, even reel-to-reals, if your old enough to remember. But I'm finding that my collection was realitive small compared to other collectors. However, I recently moved and was forced to dramatically down size. I regreattable had to get rid of 90% of my collection. Now. I have to replenish my collection. Although I don't agree with downloading, It's the cheapness way to go along with buying used cds. The price, whatever it be, physical or online store, is not worth the price, then, if you add shipping to online stores, it even adds to the costs. I've been downloading singles and eventually finishing the album with used cds. In some cases, I downloaded the entire album, for, otherwise, an album that is out of print. And the price Amazon.com wants for a respective out of print cd is ridiculous. I'm not willing to dish out no thirty to a hundred dollars for a cd when I can purchase the download verson on itunes for $9.99.

why would you buy music when you can get it for free?

You may be surprised by what you find at the local Library.

Buy a vinyl record player. Go to your local thrift store (if you have Goodwill they work). Buy records for 79 cents each. They're not anything new, but you may find some timeless gems amoung them.
