Best music platform for downloading songs

Wed Jan 31, 2018 9:37 pm

I will be doing a lot of international and cross-border travel this year, and I have not followed the music filing and subscription scene for several years now, so I am basically illiterate.

I want my songs to be self-contained in my phone or device, no matter what they promise I don't want any music service that is based on streaming or the need for internet. Reality is Wi-Fi is not universal, and streaming services may run into copyright issues in other countries or even be subject to some sort of blockage. So basically, what technology today is the best to download inidividual songs and then have no further need for the platform, aside for when you want new music to download.

I figure with all the frequent flyers and travelers here this would be an easy question to get answered. Thanks.

There are several websites that allow you to download youtube videos as MP3 files. It's a quick and easy way to get yourself a lot of music, including rare songs that are impossible to get through regular channels.

A paid Spotify subscription will allow you to listen to your songs offline when you need it to be offline, and stream it when you are online.

With most of the CDs I buy from Amazon, they give me a free MP3 file that I can listen to from the cloud, or that I can download, to a phone or a computer.

Is it your aim to stay legal? If so, the youtube conversions are probably not. Neither are torrents, but that is another way. The Pirate Bay lives on.
