MP3s for Free: Music Download Trials and Paid Services
Rhapsody has both an interface and a website. The size of the catalog is staggering. Opera, Pop, Broadway, Jewish-Israeli, all genres! I highly recommend taking the two week trial for no cost, just to see if it's for you, and to enjoy some great music. They probably ask a credit card, so remember to cancel before two weeks if it's not for you.
I still use Rhapsody, but have since become an eMusic subscriber. The difference is simply that I get to download mp3s without any time limitations. The music files are mine to do with as I please, whether it be burning a CD or putting them onto my mp3 player.
Each month I get 30 downloads, and am slowly building up my music library to a very respectable size and selection. There really is no drawback, and especially to give it a free trial and get yout first mp3s. You may choose to continue after the trial, or that it's not your thing. The music you got is yours to keep.
