Question where can i hear / listen to music / song before i buy


Hi friends,

Its all in the subject.

Please suggest me options where I can listen to songs or samples of them before i decide upon purchasing the entire album (CD). This will be beneficial to me for my online purchases (of full albums) based on my liking for particular songs of an album or based simply on recommendations of the artists/albums.

I tried AOL but they have only a few latest albums for listening into. And I found that Amazon and Ebay don't offer this.

Thanks in advance.

itunes store has samples you can listen to of almost every song they have for purchase (and they have the biggest catalogue of any retailer).

Cheers,

Check in mp3 download section of Amazon and you should find a sample of all the songs listed for sale. As FM suggested, itunes is a good alternative.

Also, mostly a google should fetch the results even for not so famous bands.

Didn't know flipkart is so much into english music that it allows audio samples. Certainly worth a check, i guess.
