Free Chinese Music: Link Collection
I know there's probably a good bunch of links to Chinese music scattered all over these groups topics.
Anyhow, it's quite bothersome to open all these threads and search for links. So I'd like to suggest to collect all links to free (and legal) Chinese music in this conversation. Of course lyrics are always welcome.
I'll start with:
张悬 — 喜欢
More info, video and download:
Direct download link: http://freedownloads.last.fm/download/77371899/%25E5%2596%259C%25E6%25AC%25A2.mp3
It's possible that you will need a last.fm account to download.
Please feel free to participate in this conversation and post any link to chinese music you know :-)

There used to be a google.cn service (music.google.cn) that basically had every Chinese song imaginable (and some western stuff too) for free and downloadable. I guess with Google pulling out of China, this service will also go with it.
You need to access the music.google.cn site through a Chinese proxy to use it however, or login from within China itself.. but yes.. it is (was) a great service.

I guess we all heard about google's Chinese music service and I admit it is (or used to be?) a great thing. But as you alreay mentioned, it requires a Chinese IP which makes it hard to access for some of those who are not currently staying in China.
Instead of browsing through a rather voluminous webpage, I also find it far more convenient to have a list of links for direct download, where it's possible to just click "save as..." and take pot luck what kind of song you get :-)
So dear fellow Cpodders: reveal your Chinese music downloads ;)
