Mommy Music Cravings: An Honest Music Download Site Review

Back in the day, I was an mp3 junkie.  I used to spend hours downloading songs from the now extinct Napster.  In between doing research for my college thesis, I’d squeeze in some time to download Madonna and A-Ha songs.  My reason for getting an internet service provider then was more for music downloads than for schoolwork, I must admit.

Fast forward to today, I am a single mom with cellulite-laden thighs and an undying love for music.  Yes, the years may have taken their toll on my formerly dreamy body, but my burning desire for songs of various genres is still alive.  Napster may have died an untimely death, but it’s good to know that there is MP3Mixx. is an mp3 download site with a huge selection of music to choose from.  It’s always updated with the latest songs from your favorite artists.  My daughter is a major fan of Lady Gaga, and she’s only too happy to know that I am able to download her favorite songs from this site.  They go straight from the laptop to her mp3 player.

What’s nice about MP3Mixx is the interface isn’t intimidating.  It’s really easy to navigate and find the songs I want.  I can get pretty impatient, so it’s really convenient that this website is able to come up with search results quickly.

Another thing, if the song you’re looking for is not on their website, they’ll offer you suggestions of other songs by the same artist.  If you’re searching for a Beatles song, don’t worry, they won’t fill your screen with a list of songs by Pink.

If you’re not sure about a particular song, this website allows you to preview the mp3 before downloading it.  Don’t worry about the poor sound quality of the preview.  The actual mp3 sounds far better, and you can choose its bitrate prior to downloading.

Since I’m a mom, price is of the utmost importance.  MP3Mixx agrees with me, as the prices of its tracks come at a cheap 15 cents each.  Wow, you could get an entire album for only a few dollars!

MP3Mixx is now my go-to place to satisfy my cravings for music ranging from the 70’s to the present day.  Listening and dancing to music of all kinds is something my daughter and I enjoy doing together.  Who would’ve thought that an mp3 downloads site can keep that maternal bond ever so tight?

  1. 15 cents a tune??? Wow, that’s great. We just usually use iTunes, but those are either $.99 or $1.29. And we download a boatload of music in this house! Thanks for the tip…

  3. wow, price is pretty reasonable :) We love music too! Even if music doesn’t really like me, I still sing my heart out when I am just with the family :-D and i love that our daughter loves music too. I am really thankful to music and sometimes I can’t help but sing “salamat musika” (by nanette inventor) haha!

  4. I love music too. Lately, I am more inclined to listen to instrumental pieces done either on guitar ,piano or harp. I even got some played on traditional Chinese instruments…the kind you hear sa spa…very relaxing indeed :-)

  5. Oh good old Napster! It was the bomb back in the day!

  6. I just missed that whole downloading music era, and will always still go and buy the cd. I’m still the one who wants to hold a book in my hand too though, and will never own a kindle. I know, I’m weird;)
