Free (and legal!) MP3 Madness

The following is a guest post from Sarah Eliza at Devastate Boredom.

But first, a little about the blogger: Sarah Eliza started blogging about six months ago, when she realized that if she didn’t find a creative outlet her brain cells were going to start dying at a truly unacceptable rate. Her blog Devastate Boredom tracks her journey to self-actualization, with a liberal helping of pop-culture fun, TV & movie reviews, growing environmental awareness, free-MP3 updates, and other Thriftie adventures. She’ll get really excited if you stop by and say hi!!

Over the course of the last six months or so the weekly MP3 Madness over at Devastate Boredom has spanned quite a range of styles and genres, expanding our taste in music in all kinds of eclectic directions without straining our wallets one single bit. A lot of these tracks are still available, and so I've compiled some of the best to share with y'all today. (*happy dance*!!) A word of warning, since I can see that all of y'all are a little concerned about it already... the answer is yes. Yes, your iPod might explode. Is that a reason NOT to download all of this amazing music?? Not a chance! Get that good ol' "right click" warmed up and have at it. ;) Enjoy!
