Free Music by the Thousands: Creative Commons Licensing

In another thread

whose topic had nothing to do with music, rudympohl mentioned a web site called animoto, which can be used to create and display slide shows.

As I was browsing the site's FAQs

I noted a discussion of Creative Commons music, including some of the sites where it may be found. This is music that musicians are willing to share without payment. I went to the one of the sites, Jamendo--and found myself AMAZED by the quality of the music that I heard there.

Apart from Jamendo, here are the other sites that are mentioned on the animoto web site: Dmusic, Opsound, Sounclick. For more information, go to

Thank you Rudy!
