None of us can deny that listening to music is an unavoidable part of our lives now-a-days. In the hustle-bustle of modern lifestyle where we are at a run all the time, music lets our minds relax and get energised. Previously we used to have taped-cassettes to store music, then came the era of CDs and DVDs, followed by the memory card, hard drives, pen drives etc, and now the whole world is gradually tending towards listening to music using the internet, without storing it.
Online music is rightly in trend today. This is an excellent option for people who feel that it is better to directly listen to the favourite song out of numerous ones available online, than to download it in a storage device. And to serve this purpose, several websites can be found online. While some of them allow us to listen to music at absolutely free of cost, others give access after a monthly subscription or small amount of money per song.
