If you like classical music, 99 Must-Have Chillout Classics
is a really good collection for only $1.99. It’s over 7 HOURS of music from a variety of composers. Also, if you go to Amazon.com and type “99 must have” or “50 must have” or something similar into the search box, you can find a variety of MP3 collections like this one, often for only a couple of dollars. It’s a good, inexpensive way to learn about some of the classics.
I downloaded this album about a month ago and I’m finding it to be great background music as I work at my computer. Since it’s a variety of artists and plays, there’s a good variety there but it’s not distracting like radio can be. Best of all – 7 hours and no commercials!
