Gina over at Lifehacker published a nice article about places where one can find free music on the internet. The categories include Google, of course, amazon, mp3 blogs and del.icio.us.
All suggestions contain examples to make it easier for the reader. The comments also include some great suggestions as well. Its always a good thing to receive more tips on this subject. I did not know the webjay service for example, a nice playlist community site.
Update: The article is no longer available on the Lifehacker website, probably due to some site redesign that has taken place. I suggest you check out or free music list that points you to dozen of services that offer free music to visitors and registered users.

Music blogs have grown in popularity in recent times. Music gets posted regularly on blogs and aggregators with options to play it directly on the blog or to download it to the PC.
Internet radio is still popular and tools like Streamwriter make it easier than ever to record music from one or multiple stations at the same time. You can increase your music collection significantly with the program.
List but not least there is the option to convert YouTube music videos to mp3.
