Last.fm Gets Lots of Songs


Posted January 23, 2008 - By jrmylmb

A press conference earlier today had CBS, who acquired Last.fm last year, announcing that songs from all the four major record labels, and therefore almost all the recorded music ever, was going to be available on the site. This is huge. It’s on-demand, it’s free, it’s everything you want when you can’t get a song out of your head and you’ve just gotta hear it.

It’s also limited, naturally. After three plays you won’t be allowed to hear a song anymore unless you purchase the rights to. Oh, unless you delete your cookies. OK, I guess they’re working on making it harder, right? Wrong. One of the co-founders of Last.fm said only technically savvy users with an agenda would know to do that. Congratulations, FeedReader, that’s YOU! So, listen away.

3.5 million songs are already available and more are being added all the time at a jaunty pace, with the goal of having every song on the four major labels, and of course all of the smaller labels they’ve acquired, available for free on Last.fm
