    MSN Music to offer free songs
    Microsoft's MSN Music on Monday announced it would offer free downloads of some songs in the running for Grammy awards this year.

    From Tuesday through Saturday, the company will offer one song download per day. The songs will be selected by the editorial team at MSN Music, which will pick the tracks they think will win the Grammy in several categories.

    On Tuesday, MSN will offer its picks for best pop vocal performance, male and female. The following four days, the company will give away its choice for the "best song" in four categories: rock (on Wednesday), rap (Thursday), R&B (Friday), and country (Saturday).

    The music download market is dominated by Apple Computer's iTunes store. In a bid to challenge this domination, Microsoft last year launched its music service. Both companies offer songs for 99 cents each.

    MSN said that only one free song download will be allowed per person per day. The offer is open to U.S. residents who are at least 18 years old. Microsoft also said music fans will need to sign up for an MSN music account and provide a credit card number.

    The Grammys will be doled out on Feb. 13. Click here to see a list of nominees.

    It may be unethical, but I want Napster back the way it used to be.
    That's one issue I have to say I do not agree with Metallica one. It's my opinion that the songs that are released for radio play should be available for free. If you want the rest of the cd then you have to buy it. That's fair isn't it?

    I remember when napster was free.........now they charge.

    I remember when AudioGalaxy was free......now they charge.

    I remember when Kazaa was free.....and it still is, but it sucks.

    I remember when Imesh did not have a bug that makes your search resluts all black and you can read them.....but now they do in version 5.

    I can't wait till the fix the bug.

    who wants to pay anyway......Ipods really suck BTW. My Mp3 player is a Nike-Phillips Mp3 MAX, and it is wonderful.

    Dosn't a membership for MSN Music cost anyways and you'd have to pay to get free music. My type of music isn't on there and I stopped going there when they stopped streaming a old country.
