Aloha Friday: Music

Minduka_Music_iconI love listening to music.  I’ll code websites while rocking out to Aerosmith.  I’ll kill an earworm by buying the song and playing it over and over.

I get my music from various sources.  Sometimes, I buy new CDs.  Sometimes, I buy used CDs. Sometimes, I buy digital music from

Recently, given my Doctor Who obsession, I looked into getting some of the music from the show.  I stumbled upon eMusic, a site I’ve heard of before but never used, and noticed that the price for the Doctor Who album was much less.  Even better, I’d get a $25 credit for signing up.  This would be enough for the Doctor Who album plus one or two other albums.

As I signed up, though, I realized why I don’t buy music from there.  To get my credit – and to buy music at all – I needed to sign up for a monthly plan.  While I’ll buy a bunch of music every now and then, I don’t buy it often enough to justify a monthly fee.  So, for now, I’ll keep buying my music from Amazon’s MP3 store and from CD shops.

My Aloha Friday question for today is: Where do you buy your music from?
