Download MP3 For Free, Right From Your Desktop

Downloading MP3 from the Web is never an easy task. You have to search Google for your favorite song, find the correct site that comes with a proper download link and also constantly in fear that RIAA will come knocking your door. While we have covered 5 useful sites to download free and legal MP3, they are hardly your favorite pop songs that you hear in the radio. Now, what if you can search for the songs you like, listen to a preview of it and download them for free, right from your desktop. Sound great, isn’t it?

Super MP3 Download is one great software (for Windows) that allows you to do what you love best: download MP3 for free. And yes, you can find the Top 40 Hits here, and songs from many other genres and categories. In fact, there are more than 100 million songs available for you to search (and download), so there is a very high chance of you finding the songs you want.

MP3 search – by title, artists or albums

After you have installed the software, you can easily perform a search either by the song title, artists or its album name. Super MP3 Download is quick to fetch the result from its database, and I am happy to find that it brings back the songs I want at the first search for more than 95% of the time


Preview the songs before you download

There are many great many features in Super MP3 Download, but the one that I love best is the ability to preview and listen to a song before I download. After you have performed a search, from the search result, you can simply highlight an entry and get it streaming directly from the Web. If you are satisfied with the quality, you can then proceed to download the song. Now, for those who are afraid of the legal issue (by downloading the songs), or your hard disk is running out of space, you can also use this as an online radio where you get your favorite songs to play non-stop.


Advanced search

I have no use for the Advanced Search because the basic search function is already good enough for me. But if you are looking for more specific piece of music, perhaps the unplugged version of “Hotel California”, then the Advanced Search will be useful for you. Similiar to the basic search, you can query the database via the song title, artists, album name or all of them. In addition, there is an “Edition” field where you can choose the edition you want.


More ways to discover new songs

The Hot Songs and the Categories sections are two great place to discover new songs, or to zoom in on your searches. As its name implies, the Hot Songs section shows the Top 10 songs in USA. There is also a link for you to expand the list to Top 100 songs. The Categories section allows you to narrow down your search to the Genre of the songs. When you click on any of the category, it will show a list of the popular songs from that category.


Extra features that I hope to see

While this is already a great software that can save you time and effort to search and download MP3, we can definitely benefit with even more features. Here’s what I hope to see:

Search for songs by the music

There are times when I have heard a nice song in the bar, but I have completely no idea what’s the name of the song or the artists. All I can do is to record the music with my phone and get Shazam or Tunatics to identify the song. Now, if SuperMP3 allows us to perform a search with bits and pieces of the song itself, it will be great.

Support for multiple platforms

I am not shy to hide that I am using three different OS in my three computers at home. I have Windows, Mac as well as Linux. In my opinion, Super MP3 Download is not a complicated software and it should be easy to implement one for Mac and Linux.

Super MP3 Download comes in two version: Free and Pro. The free version allows you to download only 5 songs per day and you can only download 1 song at a time. The pro version comes in at $39.95 for a lifetime license or $1.66 per month if you just want to try it out. The Pro version removes all limits. You can download unlimited songs simultaneously at any moments.

  1. Quote: “Now, for those who are afraid of the legal issue (by downloading the songs)… you can also use this as an online radio where you get your favorite songs to play non-stop.”

    Does this mean it’s illegal to use this software to download songs?

    1. @BWPanda: Not really. The software queries the songs from various servers and most of them are license free. This is for those who are paranoid about legality issue and doesn’t want to have any download in their computer. I have several friends that are such paranoids…

      1. The 1st two paragraphs are some what contradictory. I would appreciate some clarification on the legality of this app.

        From my understanding, most mainstream music (“radio music”) is not free for download. Radio stations have to pay for a license to play proprietary music.

        If this application searches free licensed music site then you will hardly find mainstream “radio music” (unless the artist/company permits it’s distribution).

  2. That is such a great app. I like listening music, especially the free one. BTW is this tool able to search traditional songs? thanks

    1. @Smiley Codes: I am not sure if it searches your definition of “traditional songs”, but so far it has been able to return the songs that I wanted to find.
