First, please keep this poll legally.


I'd like to know how do you build your music library or what way do you listen to music. If you use more than one method, pick what do you use the most.

CDs: Buying CDs or borrowing it from library or anywhere. Even if you rip CDs you bought to computer and don't play on CD player, this is the choice.
Digital download: Download from iTunes Store, Google Play or websites that you can buy to download individual song or album.
Internet streaming or internet radio: Spotify, Pandora, official music video on YouTube or etc... some of this services require you to pay for flat-rate subscription.
AM/FM Radio: listening to whatever music that broadcasted.

If you tell me why do you use your method, I'll appreciate it! I want to hear your opinions too.



I buy CDs at the most. The reason is I grew up with CDs and I want keep my music collection to the same format. Also, music on CDs are better quality than others.

I get my music source from torrents.

If I find an album truly astonishing, then I'll buy it to support the artist.

i only buy something if i cannot find it anywhere else, or, as the above said, if it absolutely blows me away.

Digital downloads and torrents are the same thing really, of which is how I get nearly all my music and if I can't find something through unofficial means then I will purchase it from Amazon, Bandcamp or iTunes.

A mixture of AM/FM radio and Internet streams, counting 'ye olde' AM/FM radio under Internet streams in the poll as every music and/or video capable device in my house, with the exception of my alarm clock, is connected to my home network in one way or another.

Digital from itunes, since no cd exists.
Then cd. I prefer holding onto physical copies but sadly that's not possible for the music i like.

Sometimes FM radio, mostly I get my music I want to listen to on CD & then rip it onto my iPod to listen to in the car/work.

happenstance. For something new, often flipping through channels or research after someone mentioning a group

I currently have almost 3000 songs...I would have more if it wasn't because of the fact that Ipods suck 'cause they always die on me and the first time this happened I had over 5000... no back ups...I cried hard. Never paid for any of them and now I keep them all in my phone.

I got most of them from google (free sites), gendou (anime or japanese music), and torrents.

I use spotify (with premium) because it's easy to use and you can find almost anything there. There are of course exceptions, that you could properly be able to find on Itunes. Their way of making playlists are nice, and their mobile App is good as well.

After getting premium there just is no returning to the free version.
