ListMP3 Directory of Free and Legal MP3 Files
ListMP3.com was a directory of free and legal mp3 files on the internet.
Content is from the site's archived files and other outside sources.
ListMP3.com was a directory of free and legal mp3 files on the internet. It was live approximately between 2000 to 2001. Its domain expired and the site was bought at one point to host a Russian site called PeterHost.Ru. Recently I discovered that the ListMP3.com domain was once again available so I bought it with the goal of recreating some of its content from archived pages. I had utilized ListMP3.com (found lots of bands I would never in a million years have ever heard) and I definitely didn't want someone else purchasing the domain and re-purposing the site for something that had nothing in common with the original website. Since the site will not be exactly as you remember it, please be indulgent. If you come across this site you can treat it as a historical record or as a nostalgic stroll back to 2000 when not everyone was trying to rip MP3's to their own purpose. I applaud the creators of the original site for offering much insight and legitimate accessibility to MP3 files, permitting artists to promote their material, reviews of listed artists, and helpful links to other cool sites.
Some of my friends, when we were much younger, posted their music on ListMP3. We all wanted to be musicians. Since those times most of us have moved in new directions. As of now I am working for a progressive software development firm. I have just finished a job helping a large medical center integrate all their different systems into a streamline, well functioning machine. Another part of the job was to create custom apps for medical data analytics and the teams that do Salesforce consulting. I believe that big Data Healthcare is going to revolutionize the entire healthcare industry as does Salesforce. The now have a health / medical platform that is aimed at the businesses within the healthcare marketplace. Access to a larger quantity of personal healthcare data plus an improved ability to analyze these data sets will influence how consumers shop for healthcare, how healthcare is delivered, and even the kind of care and medicine consumers receive. It's exciting to be in the vanguard. I still play my guitar to relax and occasionally get together with friends to jam. But none of us actually pursued a career in music. When I look down the list of artists that submitted music way back in 2000, I wonder how many of them are making a living at it.
I'm constantly surprised at all the musical talent out there. Recently learned that the guy who handled the SEO for this site is/was a composer and is not only a musician, but was the head of A&R for Paramount Records. He then composed tv/film scores and ran a music production firm with a recording studio in NYC. This person now heads the search consultancy TNG/Earthling and is one of the most sought after SEOs because of his successes in ranking sites in Google. That person is Bob Sakayama. Do a search for him to see both his music and his SEO chops. I wonder if he still composes.
The list of artists available at ListMP3.com offered a large number of artists that visitors may or might not have ever heard of. I will include just a sampling. In addition ListMP3 had links to other sites of interest. Some were rated and others were not. I would assume that most of these sites no longer exist since it's been more than 15 years from when they closed up shop. But hey, you never know.
