If you’re one of the 20% of the population who haven’t heard of it, Spotify is the best thing in free music streaming in generations. Download it (click on image above), create an account and stream whatever you want – almost everything is there. The only download is 1.5 minutes adverstising an hour – this is the likely to increase, so get in now while the going’s good. You can choose to subscribe for £10 a month, and have no ads.

The best thing is you can create playlists, so plug you compute into an amplifier, connect with a couple of speakers and have a playlist for every occasion. Even a £10 a month it’s a brilliant deal – some people are already stashing all their CDs and relying on Spotify for all their non-iPod music from now on.
