As many of you are aware, Google has a “Free Song of the Day” (FSotD) in their Play Store. Sometimes these songs are from no-namers, sometimes these songs are in the top 50, and sometimes these songs are well-known oldies. Also, as many of you are aware, if you dig through the Google Store, there are a number of other free songs you can find if you know exactly where to go. However, this isn’t about any of these.
This thread is about yet another channel to get free songs from Google. This has actually been around longer than the FSotD for those who knew about it. This is a Blogspot blog maintained by Google called Magnifier. In addition to a history of free songs that you can wade through and add to your account, this has additional FSotD type deals. Sometimes these overlap with the Play Store’s FSotD and others are totally independent. In addition to the FSotD they also have Artist of the Week, and more.
Now that in itself is great, but it still gets better. In addition to all of the above features that allow you to get free songs one-at-a-time, there’s also a single page that gets you hundreds of songs with just a few button clicks. Also at Magnifier is Google’s Free Song Archive where you can get many songs for specific genres including artists such as Santana, Outkast, Johnny Cash, Shakira, Frank Sinatra, and more!
Lastly, totally unrelated to the rest of the content of this post, here’s one more trick to find a bunch of free songs from Google in Google Music. Go into the Music Play Store and search for: “live at google”.
Hope you enjoy!
