(Newser) – The wide world of online music now offers a range of ways to stream your tunes, from pay sites to musical social-networking services. It’s hard to tell which will stick around, but experts say they may help save the music industry, CNN reports. A sampling:

  • Napster: It’s back and it’s legal, and for $5 a month, you can stream 7 million songs and download five.

  • eMusic: Indie fans pay $11.99 a month for 24 downloads, with 35 songs free when they first sign up.
  • Pandora: Type the name of your favorite band—this site makes a radio station playing tunes in that artist’s style.
  • imeem: It’s “the digital revival of the mixtape,” writes John D. Sutter. Listen for free and make playlists for your friends.
  • The Hype Machine: This site collects songs from music blogs around the Internet, creating one feed for all of them.
