But finding a site with free and unlimited music without the need to pay a dime can be a real test. Fortunately, in this free world, nothing is impossible. Here, we have listed out the 7 best sites for free music which are both legal and unusually good.
We haven’t listed the sites like Spotify and Pandora, as these are quite common for the masses. So, without further delay, let’s get started.
Cliggo is the perfect site for music lovers who are on a lookout for a wide variety of musical genres. From the popular songs of the 1980s to the latest tracks, this site has it all. Similar to Spotify, it lets you create and save a playlist, once you sign-in to the site.
What’s more, you can choose popular tracks from countries from all over the world. And if ever, you find yourself puzzled, the artist recommendations and the song recommendations will do the trick.
Often touted as “The next generation of radio”, AccuRadio is among the top choices for the music lovers. It’s USP is that it contains a diverse range of artists and songs. So whether it’s old disco songs or the new Bruno Mars song — everything will be laid out to you.
Though the interface is a tad clunky, it makes that up by providing unlimited free skips on the songs. Since it’s an online radio, you might miss the create playlist part a bit.
For the Bollywood fan out there, here’s a chance to listen to free and unlimited Hindi songs on Gaana. Gaana is one of the leading music streaming services in India currently and provides a wealth of choices for the music lover in you.
This service isn’t just limited to Hindi songs, it contains an equal mixture of international hits as well as regional music.
Similar to AccuRadio, this one also lets you do unlimited skips on the playlist. The advantage over Cliggo is that it lets you add songs to the queue even without signing in. Plus, the ‘Play Similar Song’ is one helluva feature if you don’t want to manually line-up the songs, but yet want the service to play songs to your liking.
3. Noon Pacific

SoundCloud is the haven for the upcoming artist and popular artists alike. It has a huge library of songs and you can listen to all the songs for free.
What’s more, if you are a musician yourself you can upload your content to the site.
Fifth on our list is Jango. Besides the popular songs and artists, Jango also acts as a platform for upcoming artists and new songs. Though it playfully boasts of giving ads, but be assured, that it’s just one ad per day.
That is something, which I suppose, most of us will happily live with. The only downside to this site is that you cannot skip to a particular spot in the song.
6. Google Play Music
Google Play Music has made quite a name for itself in the recent years. Although it’s popular as a subscription based service, one can easily listen to umpteenth free songs without the need to subscribe. All you need to have is a Google ID.
Depending on the setup that you do, the choices are immense. Plus, there’s also an option of starting a radio. However, when it comes to skipping a song, you can skip only 6 songs per hour. But on the bright side, you can seek to any position of the song that you like best.
