Before online music stores, musical requests had to be fielded by lute-brandishing troubadours, who could instantly recall everything from "The Lord's Lady Awaits" to "M'lady, Await Your Lord." Hear all the modern refrains of courtly love with today's Groupon: for $15, you get a three-month subscription to MOG Music (up to a $29.97 value).
Mining from a catalog of both major-label and independent artists, Primo All-Access subscriptions (a $9.99/month value) unearth more than 10 million songs that can be streamed online or on MOG's award-winning mobile app. As users search the catalog by artist, album, or individual song, radio streams—uninterrupted by ads or morning-zoo DJs—instantly queue up either a single artist's repertoire or a mixture of tracks from similar artists. To discover new music and meet like-minded listeners, Moggers can peek at lists of favorite songs on others' personal profile pages or peruse an ever-expanding collection of user-created playlists, from classic alt-rock power ballads to the best of the 1890s' organ-grinder scene.
Each Primo subscription also grants access to MOG's mobile app for iPhone, iPod Touch, or Android, its technological innovations garnishing the title of Best Music Streaming App in 2010 by Billboard magazine. Along with pocketsize access to radio stations and user profile, the app replaces old thimblefuls of 1/8-inch vinyl LPs with an unlimited amount of high-quality MP3 downloads, available for instant playback as long as the mobile subscription remains valid.
Though MOG Music offers discounts online, this Groupon still represents the best deal available.
