7-23-11: Initial release.
If you hadn’t known, Spotify is now in the USA, but to get in (as of the time of this writing), you got to be invited. I have created a special Spotify invite ring (similar to my Demonoid invite ring) where I help you guys out. All you got to do is go to the form at the end of this blog article, fill out the google docs form, and wait for me to send you an invite.
What you can also do to help me out is go to spotify.com, and sign up all your email addresses for invites. As you get your invites, use the form to submit those to me, and then I can help recycle invites for other people. Thanks!

I decided to write this article in response to a question from a fellow user, “PunditStyle”.
“What is an easy way to find free music online?”
Alright then. This all depends on your version of “free.”
If by free, you mean free to download and use LEGALLY, then you have many different options. First, websites such as last.fm, pandora, idobi radio, and others will stream internet radio. You can pick stations based on types of music, bands, songs, and mix and match your favorites. Recently, I used last.fm to find new bands to listen to based on some of the ones I’m currently into. Last.fm is free and doesn’t require a download or an account to use. Pandora requires you to make a free account and there are limitations to how many songs you can skip over. Idobi allows you to download playlists which stream music online. There’s a new playlist every day, so there’s always something to listen to.
