One of the greatest things about being in college is meeting new people, because what comes with new people is new music. In just the first couple of months of my freshmen year, I have gotten hundreds of songs from other people living in my dorm. Music is just one of those universal things that people love to share and spread. Word of mouth is one of the biggest ways music is distributed the amongst teens, even if it’s through a Facebook wall post. Television shows, music blogs, and websites created for the sole purpose of spreading music (such as my new favorite SoundCloud) are how music is shared throughout the masses. Television shows have sections on their websites dedicated to the music featured in an episode; sometimes describing the specific scene it was played. However, I must admit that the best way to research a band, listen to their music, and see their tour dates continues to belong to MySpace. It just sets it up in a nice, clean package on a single page, and for that, MySpace remains king. Internet and music is a great relationship that will only continue to flourish, as does all other information on the World Wide Web.
