If you have a computer, you do not need anything else to listen to and find any music that you desire. While most of you already know about popular music websites and applications such a iTunes, Amazon, Pandora and Last.fm, there are many more. Recently, these 3 websites have become my favorites for searching for or listening to music:

1. Wolfgang’s Vault – If you are a fan of classic rock, enjoy listening to live concerts, and are interested in rock memorabilia, you will love Wolfgang’s Vault. This website offers free live streaming of concerts from the 1960s through now. When you click on a band or rock artist you will be given information about the artist, memorabilia that you can purchase, related artists, comments and links to live concerts and/or interviews to stream on your computer. You can make your own playlists, listen to other members playlists and make comments. The concerts come mostly from the Bill Graham Archives and the King Biscuit Flower Hour, which many baby boomers will remember as the premier rock radio show from back in the day. I am listening to a 1978 Bruce Springsteen concert right now. New artists and concerts are continuously added.

2. Google Discover Music – If you thought Google did a good job on your music searches before, you will be thrilled with the results you get from Google Discover Music. Recently launched on October 28, 2009, Google Discover Music is a dedicated search page for searching anything music. Because this search engine searches only music, results are much quicker and will bring you to your desired result. If you search for a song or artist, you will get links to an audio preview of the songs and links to purchase them. Even better, if you can’t remember the name of a song or artist and just know a bit of the lyrics, type them in and Google will find the song for you. By partnering with Pandora, imeem and Rhapsody, Google will also help you find music you might like based on your search.

3. Grooveshark – A great website for finding music and then saving it and making playlists, all for free. Grooveshark also has a feature that helps you discover music based on your tastes. There are social features that allow you to follow other people and subscribe to their playlists. If you decide that you want to purchase any of the songs you’ve been listening to (so that you can download them to add to your mp3 player) you can do so directly from links in Grooveshark.

Enjoy these music websites and make sure you share them with your teens. Are there any other music websites that you highly recommend?
