    What you are talking about is piracy and it is not allowed. There are other sites that offer download of music but not free of cost.

    Warning :
    Such sites that offer free downloads which are otherwise not available legally, might contain malicious code.
    I have come up with a site like this & when downloading a song from it, norton 2006 caught it up, it was a spyware.
    Beware of such things.
    And if you really wanna have some new songs, get yourself a P2P sharing software like Bearshare/Limewire. I recommend bearshare, its the least resources hoggy of the two's.

    Click here to download it:

    There is no harm in that if you have your preferences good. Just a share of your bandwidth will be utilized.
    In Bearshare, you can even turn off uploads however the speed will not be more than a >2kBps.

    The legal way to download songs onto your system: Buy the CD and copy the songs onto your system

    The illegal way: Lets not go that route, okay?

    Well OP here asked for a way to download songs for free which aren't supposed to be available for free. But, you can always share some things legally over the file sharing networks.
    In this count, yeah what is being talked about is totally illegal.
    Using P2P, including torrents is never illegal. What makes it illegal is the content sahred over these networks.

    As far as I know, downloading songs from internet radio isn't illegal till you give that song to someone else. The Indian Copyright Act (like many other countries') has a "fair use" clause that lets you keep as many copies of copyrighted content as long as it is for your own personal use ONLY.

    The unfortunate thing is that there's a million different interpretations of the fair use clause, so you never know when you've broken the law.

    And like tech_your_future said: Using P2P and Torrents isn't illegal - it's the content.

    I'm not locking this thread because:
    1. No links to pirated music have been provided (please keep it that way)
    2. This could actually evolve into a healthy discussion, and should make for interesting reading.

    First get your heads clear on piracy

    Any creation for which the creator demands payment per unique user but does not get it is piracy

    So P2P is piracy. So is getting an original CD from a friend and ripping it

    For those who wanna go the right way, wait for iTunes to start its downloading service in India. I heard they're impressed by the iPod's popularity and will begin operations soon

    There are some sites legal ( I think so :) ) , you can search for them by providing the track name that you want to download in Google .

    I'm sure you will come across something .

    Well if I use P2P only for downloading linux and sharing free music, yes it's available though it's not commercial music, then how can P2P be ilegal?
    I am not promoting piracy but actually in India piracy does help. I will give my own example. I came across songs of artists like Bryan Adams and MLTR through P2P channels and became their fan. Else I would have never known of them. I am ready to buy their cd's now as I do like their songs a lot. I even attended both their concerts in Mumbai. So, in this case piracy rather helped the artists in long term rather than hinder.
    There are some people too who download music or movies via P2P just to see how good or bad it is. They need not waste their money on sub-standard ones. Then they buy or watch in theatres whichever ones they like.
    It does not necessarily hold true for all and sundry but it is true in some cases. Well it differs from situation to situation.
