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

[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.

[Deal Alert] More Free Music Up For Grabs On Google Play - This Time 'Play: Latin Vibes' And '1000 Forms Of Fear' By Sia

[Deal Alert] More Free Music Up For Grabs On Google Play - This Time 'Play: Latin Vibes' And '1000 Forms Of Fear' By Sia

Good news for those of you who love free stuff! Google is giving away some more albums on Google Play Music today. The two that are available are of completely different genres but share the same sweet price of nothing.

The first album is Play: Latin Vibes and features ten Latin songs by ten different artists including Ricky Martin. I listened to the first few songs, and I think it's a sweet mix that would be great to listen to while lounging poolside at a resort. Or, while basking in the flickering florescent lights of your cubicle while you eat a burrito from Chipotle.

[Deal Alert] Get The Very Best Of A Whole Bunch Of Music Artists From All Over The Place For Free On Google Play

Last week we saw that you were able to download Playlist: The Very Best of Ciara for free (you still can, but the way). That deal isn't alone. A slew of similar albums are also available for the same low price of awesome. And they aren't limited to any one genre either.

You can get the very best of Britney Spears or Destiny's Child if you're into pop, or you can step back in time to hear the work of Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. Playlist: The Very Best of Nas is here for fans of rap, and there's Incubus if you're looking for rock.

[Deal Alert] Jaime Lawson's Self-Titled Album Is Free To Pre-Order On Google Play, X From Ed Sheeran Is Just 99 Cents

Tonight the Google Play Store is giving US customers a lesson in delayed gratification. Would you rather have a free album of music in about two months, or a cheap album right now? That's the choice being presented between the self-titled Jaime Lawson and Ed Sheeran's X: the former is available for free if you pre-order it, and the latter is just a dollar, but all the songs are available right now. Of course, there's nothing stopping you from taking both of them.

Both artists are from the United Kingdom - according to his Wikipedia page, Lawson was recently signed to Sheeran's label, Gingerbread (which may have something to do with the discounts).

[Deal Alert] Three Jazz Albums From Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, And Others Are Currently Free On Google Play

[Deal Alert] Three Jazz Albums From Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, And Others Are Currently Free On Google Play

It's time to take a step back in time and enjoy some of the tunes gifted to future generations from the 20th century. Google's offering three jazz albums for free in the US. One, entitled Playlist: The Very Best Of Billie Holiday, contains fifteen tracks (though it somehow lacks Strange Fruit edit: see this enlightening comment for an explanation). Playlist: The Very Best Of Miles Davis provides ten tracks from, you guessed it, Miles Davis.

The third album is similar to the Play Classical album that went on sale earlier this month. Play: Jazz Pioneers offers more music from Billie Holiday and Miles Davis, along with other hits from the likes of Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, and Paul Desmond.

[Deal Alert] > Album Title Goes Here < By Deadmau5 Is Available For Download Free From Google Play

[Deal Alert] > Album Title Goes Here < By Deadmau5 Is Available For Download Free From Google Play

In the last month Google has offered up the Guardians of the Galaxy mixtape, Lorde's Pure Heroine, and Night Visions by Imagine Dragons entirely for free. Now you can grab deadmau5's electronic album titled > album title goes here < (no, that's not a note for me to come back and wiki the name later). Like previous deals, there's a good chance this one is only available in the US thanks to labels, licensing, and other shenanigans.

If you live in the US and don't have much of a personal connection, now's a good time to start using Play Music. Each of these albums have appealed to a different musical palate, but if there's even a slight chance you will grow to like something eventually, free is the perfect price to pay to find out.

[Deal Alert] It's Time You Got Imagine Dragon's Night Vision Album For Free On Play Music

[Deal Alert] It's Time You Got Imagine Dragon's Night Vision Album For Free On Play Music

Hear Me, this deal is most probably limited to the US only, like all the previous Play Music offers over the past couple of weeks. It's not my fault, this is the way labels and geographical limitations work. You can whine, curse, boycott Google, but it's a lost cause. With that out of the way, let's get to the meat of the matter.

The Play Music team is on a roll. I mean, Lorde was something, but Imagine Dragons are just insanely more Radioactive — at least in this humble person's opinion. I was introduced to their music while watching Chuck, It's Time was playing in the background, and I simply had to grab my phone to SoundHound that tune.

Google And Size Records Put Over 150 Electronic Songs Up For Free On Google Play

Google And Size Records Put Over 150 Electronic Songs Up For Free On Google Play

Update: Judging from comments, it looks like these songs aren't available in many countries. They're downloadable for us, but your mileage may vary.

Over the course of ten years, Steve Angello of Swedish House Mafia fame has produced quite a bit of music. Now his record label, Size Records, is working with Google to give away 150 songs entirely for free. That's right - free. That's roughly a full workday of non-stop electronic music. I'm not sure if that much dance music is healthy, but that's no reason not to rave all over this deal and put a strain on your Wi-Fi connection right this moment.
