Favorite free and legal MP3s of 2007


Over the course of the year, Fingertips has featured in-depth reviews of roughly 150 excellent free and legal MP3s. Pruning that list of already really good songs down to a top 10 proved to be a piece of cake pretty much impossible. And so what follows are two lists: one of my top 10 favorite free and legal MP3s of 2007, and another featuring my next 12 favorite free and legal MP3s of the year. Click on the song titles to download; click on the word “more” to read the original “This Week’s Finds” review. More information about this page is available here. Maybe you missed some of these the first time around, so happy listening, and happy seasonal holiday of your liking. (If you’d like to listen to the songs right now, without downloading, visit the page on the main Fingertips site where these lists are posted, which features media players to play the songs.)
