So today while I was driving my car through the blizzard, I was desperately trying to keep myself warm by screaming to the radio. (Note: My car is currently without a front passenger window. See my last post.) Now, this might sound lame, but I really like Linkin Park’s new “Shadow of the Day”.

But before I go out and buy the cd, I might want to hear the song a few more times. Instead of firing up Limewire, let’s try Google. A quick search for:

"shadow of the day" intitle:"index.of" "parent directory" "size" "last modified" "description" [snd] (mp4|mp3|avi|flac|aac|ape|ogg) -inurl:(jsp|php|html|aspx|htm|cf|shtml|lyrics-realm|mp3-collection)

gave me two results. Clicking the first one led me to an actual .mp3 file. Nice.

So here’s the trick. Highlight and Copy what I searched for, but put your own song title or artist or composer name inside the quotation marks at the beginning. Yes, the quotation marks are important.

And enjoy.
