The Best Free Songs on Google Music

Illustration for article titled The Best Free Songs on Google Music

One of the coolest features of Google Music is the free jams they're giving away every day. We went through and picked out some our favorites from the list for your listening pleasure.

The free music tends towards hits—everything from 60's soul to 90's alternative—but it also includes exclusive tracks by big name artists like the Rolling Stones and Busta Rhymes. That's pretty awesome, but unfortunately it's not all that easy to see ALL of the free music in one place. Some of the best stuff is buried within Google's catalog, so we went through and put together a playlist of tracks we love. Since Google Music doesn't yet have a way to share the playlists you've made (really?), there's links below. We recommend you put them in the order below. We, like, totally optimized it for flow, man.

Willie Nelson - On The Road Again
The Rolling Stones - Dancing With Mr. D (Live)
The Decemberists - This Is Why We Fight
Caveman - Old Friend
Alice Cooper - No More Mr. Nice Guy
Cheap Trick - Surrender
Kansas - Carry On Wayward Son
Wyclef Jean - Gone Till November
E-40 - Quarterbackin'
Busta Rhymes Ft. Chris Brown - Why Stop Now?
RUN-DMC - Mary, Mary
OutKast - B.O.B.
Teddybears - Zero Gravity
Earth, Wind & Fire - Shining Star
Bay City Rollers - Saturday Night
Janis Jopplin - Tell Mama
Stevie Ray Vaughan - The Sky is Crying
Jeff Buckley - Dream Brother
Living Colour - Cult of Personality

I really wish I could get all this free music, but I have very strong opinions about sharing my credit card information with ANYONE to get something for free.

Maybe when I'm nice and happy with my FREE service, I might consider forking over the credit card to buy a few of those must-listen tracks I've been dying to hear.

Until then... I guess I just have to not have any of this wonderful FREE stuff because I'm not ready to give my credit card to goole.
