There aren't dedicated sites for that because the recording industry would shut those down.

Turn Google into your own personal (free) Napster - Mp3 - Lifehacker

It's an article at Lifehacker discussing how to find MP3s using Google.

I use MP3panda.com. It's so cheap it's almost free. You have to prepay about $30, and then songs are $0.05 each, albums $0.50. They deduct money from your balance every time you download.

Might be cheap but it's the equivalent of buying a pirated movie off the street. In other words, your copy of the song is not legal.

Just buy iTune's cards at the store and download songs from the iTune's Store, or download the free iTune's from Apple, move all your songs from your music CD's to iTunes (in your computer). From there you can move the songs to you iPod.

Buy them from Amazon's MP3 store store so you have music that will play on any device instead of Apple's stupid format. Or subscribe to something like the Zune pass where you can listen to everything you want for $15/mo. It's not free, but stealing has a cost too.

It is legal, as googling "MP3 Panda legality" will tell you.

I'm sure that the recording industry likes it that you think it's illegal, though. Just like the US Pharmaceutical industry likes it when Americans think that there's something wrong with prescription drugs from Canada.

You can copy your own CDS to mp3 or go to the library, borrow a CD and rip your own tunes.

Itunes has a pretty good conversion program, I'm sure there are others.

Amazon has some great free music samplers. iTunes Free has been pretty lame lately.
