free music download for ipod - logoIt's likely that you have got one of the followings: iPod, iPhone, iPad, Mac. While iPad is mainly for videos and iPhone for telephones, we mostly use iPod to listen to music. Although it's convenient to purchase music from iTunes, there are ways to get music for iPod free. Here I collected a list of sites to download free music for iPod Touch/Nano/Shuffle/Classic, which work for iPhone 5s, 5c, iPad, iTunes (Mac/PC) or even MP3 player as well.

Also, we can go to iTunes store for free music. But free songs provided by Apple iTunes are very limited. Smart guys also think of using YouTube to fetch free MP3 for their iPhone 5s (in the future) or other iOS devices. If you want to do so, this YouTube downloader will be a good aide. More conveniently, you can go to the following top free music download site list to download MP3 songs free to your iPod Touch or any other iOS. I have tested sites below, which are safe and reliable except for very few ones (I have marked as riskly in the "Note" field). What's more, many offer free music download without registration required.
