I don’t even remember how I happened upon LaLa.com, but I am so glad I did. I think it was during one of my umpteen searches on a way to back up my massive MP3 collections (23,000+ songs right now), it always makes me nervous I am going to lost them somehow. I have them backed up on to two external drives, but, still, you just never know what might happen.
Well, LaLa isn’t exactly a backup, though some call it such. The site actually serves multiple purposes.
I just posted my first two CDs for trade, and it just so happened someone was waiting for those titles (The Donnas and The Donnas Turn 21) and I will be shipping them out ASAP. As soon as they receive them, I will be allowed to receive two myself. Although, to be quite honest, I have no idea what I want!
So, thus far I have not found any drawbacks to the system. It’s all free for use except for the trades, all the other features cost nothing. I have no plans to sync my iPod with it, but I am enjoying listening to The Brian Setzer Orchestra right now on my laptop which I store no music files on!
If you love music, it’s well worth checking out, you have nothing to lose!
