    Default Best place to legally get top 40 music online

    Hey all, I've been practicing mixing for a few months now, and it looks like I'm pretty much lined up for DJing my school's dances next year after the current senior graduates. I've been building up decent library of music, but I know that I'm going to need to add more top 40 dance/pop to it considering the way these dances normally go. However, I'm not really sure what the best place is to get this type of music. I've been buying CDs and using beatport so far, but beatport doesn't have much unmixed top 40 and a lot of these songs are singles that don't have CDs. I also saw that itunes and amazon mp3 prohibit you from using their songs commercially, so I'm kind of stuck now Anyone got suggestions? Thanks!

    Yeah, I know I'm being overtly worried I guess.... I'm fine with doing that, I was just wondering if there was any other site I hadn't found out about for future reference....

    Awesome, thanks! I'm still getting a feel for all of this and I'm trying to stay as legal as possible, so someday if I land a bigger gig I don't have to worry about using music I might not supposed to be using

    Elias- Yeah, I think I'll just be using itunes and maybe amazon's music service. I guess I've just been a bit too cautious worrying about this whole thing.
