What is an alternative to Limewire for downloading music?

dave October 18, 2011

Where can I go to download music of my choice of music like oldies, folk, western, etc? I’m looking for something similar to what Limewire used to be – something I can put on my computer.

    i would highly recommend this new App -- 

    Mielophone - (  http://mielophone.github.com/#  )

    from the developers -- " 
    Mielophone is a minimalistic application for searching, listening, downloading and discovering new music.
    It mashes up together databases like MusicBrainz,
    Last.FM and BBCRadio to deliver complete info about songs,
    artists and albums.
    And uses unique plugin system to search for publicly available mp3s and streams for desired songs. "

    download -- (  https://github.com/mielophone/Mielophone/downloads  )

    Frostwire is Limewire's open source alternative. Be careful not to download copyright-protected music.
