    The challenge with recommending music sites is that the fine print regarding terms of use is sometimes very fine and applies to particular songs rather than to all works downloadable from the site. I have used Creative Commons to search for copyright-free music.
    Audionautix offers copyright-free, no registration, no subscription music.
    Danosongs has royalty-free music with credit or link to site.
    Free Sound offers just that, free sounds -- not songs!
    Incompetech asks for donations for their royalty-free music.
