Default Rhapsody . . . I'm Overwhelmed!

I've been so used to having to carefully factor in music purchases into my budget, then patiently waiting for albums to arrive that this Rhapsody account is almost making me panic. I mean, I can practically listen to anything I want - RIGHT NOW.

Is anybody else using Rhapsody? I think it's the best $10/month I've ever spent!

The only thing I know about Rhapsody is that they made the band Rhapsody change their name to Rhapsody of Fire in a bizarre lawsuit. As if anyone was going to confuse a band and a music download service. I think I'll call my new band iTunes.

Or iTunes of Fire. That has a certain ring to it.
Dream Cymbals

Default Re: Rhapsody . . . I'm Overwhelmed!

I've been a big Rhapsody fan and subscriber for the last couple years. It's like Utopia! I pony up the extra five bucks for the "to go" feature which lets me transfer whatever I want to my mp3 player (not compatible with an ipod). My mp3 player is full of music I don't own and if I quit paying the monthly bill, none of it will play. Seems cool to me.

The only downside is that some really big artists, like The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Metallica (of course), AC/DC, Ozzy, and who know how many others who either aren't there, or are buy only. Also, there's quite a bit of underground stuff not even 20 years old that you can't find at all. Sadly, there's no King Crimson either.

BUT, I still think it's a great deal for staying on top of everything new coming out and finding some older gems.

I'm curious how bands make money off this, and other similar services. Presumably, since it's all legal and above-the-boards, they get a cut somehow.
