To ask how I've become this sad person who doesn't know how to access the music I love :(

...and how can I change this horrible, isolating existence?
Okay, dramatic sounding and I have had a couple of glasses but truth is I have no idea how to access music I want to hear anymore.
Where do I go to learn?

One word - Spotify.

Agree - Spotify, I spend a fantastic night indulging my love of Prince and Dolly Parton smile

What do you mean 'huh?'?

If you've never heard of Spotify, then I assume you've heard of google?

thankslove Sat 02-Aug-14 19:09:36

Yes, have used google.

See there's the thing, it seems so unbelievable doesn't it?
I used to have LPs then tapes then CDs then children!
Surely it's not just me?

I think Charity is suggesting you use Google to find Spotify - and also to learn how to use it.

It's easy. Honest.

PS I am really quite old.

You don't need Spotify. If you mean you've lost touch I'd try buying something like Q or Mojo or Uncut and listening to their free CD samplers of new music. I generally find a couple of things each month I like, frequently artists I'd not heard of. As they avoid mainstream you'll soon be knowledge again.

I still buy CDs probably on average 3/4 per month.

What do/did you normally listen to?

As others have said, spotify. It's amazing and those who don't know what it is think I just have the best playlist in the world, which it kind of is.

You haven't said what genres you like, but BBC Radio 6Music is extremely good.

Fran another vote for 6Music. Can't believe they were thinking of closing it down a couple of years ago! I have heard so much great new (and old) music via Marc Riley and Radcliffe/Maconie!

I know exactly how you feel - used to be so on top of music and bands, but just don't know what is going on anymore since having ds.

I agree that radio 6 music is brilliant - lots of old blasts from the past that are still cool, and lots of new none mainstream music (both guitar and dance oriented). Mark Radcliffe is my favourite (afternoons 1-4)

Snap mupperoon!

Another recommend for YouTube here. I'm particularly fond of early 90's rave - it makes me feel young again smile

I've just downloaded spotify and love it. Great playlists, thanks for suggesting it.

SaskiaRembrandtWasFramed Sat 02-Aug-14 21:34:02

YouTube, LastFM or the good, old BBC website.

Pipbin Sat 02-Aug-14 22:48:14

You aren't alone in being confused by Spotify. I don't understand it and I am very tech savvy. To previous posters saying things like 'have you never heard of Google either?' doesn't help.

I think 6 music is your friend too.
