Do you ever feel like just when you get used to one kind of technology something newer and better becomes available? Take the music industry, for example—first there were records, then 8-tracks, cassette tapes, CDs, and MP3s. Well, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you're still listening to MP3s, you're living the old school life, because streaming is the latest and greatest trend in music.
Streaming allows you to use a service provider to access tons of songs via the Internet without having to buy any of them. It's kind of like listening to the radio, except there are fewer or no commercials, no DJs, and you can build your own stations based on themes or artists you like. A lot of companies provide music streaming, but I've come to love the commercial-free, customizable goodness that is Rhapsody. Now, you can try Rhapsody music streaming with a 14-day FREE subscription.
What's so great about Rhapsody? First of all, did I mention there are NO COMMERCIALS?!?! Don't get me wrong, I love a good commercial every now and then, but let's save them for the Super Bowl and not my workout jams, mmmmkay?
I also love the fact that Rhapsody offers a few ways to listen. There is unRadio, which allows me to select an artist or genre, create a station, and let Rhapsody customize the songs based on what I say I do and don't like. Or, I can create my own playlists that I can listen to on or offline.
Okay, I admit it—I love Taylor Swift’s music! But with other streaming services like Spotify, I can’t jam out to her songs. Some artists like Taylor have pulled their entire catalogues from these streaming sites. On Rhapsody, however, I can listen to her stuff ad-free, which is one of the main reasons why I subscribe.
With 35 million songs, and apps for all my devices, my music is always at my fingertips. Not only are there more songs, but there are more options to customize my music library in a way that works for me. I save money, time, and space by having a Rhapsody account. If you’re not sure if subscribing is a good idea, take advantage of the two-week free trial and see for yourself how much ad-free music is better for the soundtrack of your life.
