[Deal Alert] Country Album By Cole Swindell Free On Google Play Music (Only In Murica)

There was a time in my life,

When I knew little strife.

I spent my days cruising the road,

Freedom was my only load.

I’d play my songs nice and loud,

Singing along with the crowd.

I had lots of money to spend,

And the nights never seemed to end.

Jump forward in time eight years,

A wedding, two births, lots of laughs, and some tears.

My freedom is gone, my money is tight,

The baby wakes me up crying at night.

Now I ain’t got no time to be alive,

Except for my daily morning drive.

It’s then that I listen to the songs Google gave me for free,

And I think about old times and how things used to be.

[Exclusive] Google To Announce Play Music Family Plan On 9/29, Includes Up To 6 Devices For $15 A Month

When it comes to streaming services, family plans are where it's at for many users — no one wants to pay a monthly fee for each user in their household. This is especially true for music streaming services, which is why things like Spotify's family plans and Apple Music's family options are popular options. And it's really the one thing missing from Google Play Music All Access in order to make it a great service.

Tomorrow, that will change. At the Nexus event, Google not only plans to take the wraps off of new Nexus phones, Chromecasts, and a lot more, but it will also announce a new family streaming package for All Access.

[Deal Alert] Pink Floyd's 'Wish You Were Here' Free On Google Play Music (Probably, Most Likely, Definitely, Maybe, Possibly US Only)

Right now, I wish you were here with me. You and I could share a cigar (or maybe a Sprite instead, I think smoking is blech) and then I could welcome you to the machine sitting in my living room that I am typing on right now.

Together, we could reminisce about old bands and old times when music was pure and innovative while songs played on my computer's speakers. When sufficiently inspired, we might play and sing some of our favorite hits together with the Sprite coursing through our veins lending courage to our voices. If you were here I could watch you shine on, you crazy diamond, you.

In a rare twist, Google was quick to update a changelog on the Play Store, and this one is definitely worth it. Some big improvements have been made to the Chromecast (Google Cast) support in the latest update to Play Music, including some stability improvements, gapless playback, and continuous playback after a caster leaves the area. On top of that, a look inside turned up evidence that Google may soon allow users to "gift" subscriptions to other people.

AC/DC Is Now Ready To Rock Online Music Streaming Services, Including Google Play

Today AC/DC's albums have come to music streaming services. They are now available on the likes of Spotify, Rdio, and Google Play.


Some musicians make their debuts on the web. Others embrace online stores as a new revenue stream. A number have decried digital downloads and online streaming as detrimental to the music experience. AC/DC has been one of the last and most well-known holdouts.

The hard rock band formed in the 70s, decades before the Internet fundamentally altered the way music gets distributed. The members didn't allow its albums on iTunes until 2012, and it's only now that the group is willing to play along with music streaming services.
