Mp3skulls is probably one of the most popular free music downloading websites currently in operation. Mp3skulls.to was founded in 2010, and since then, it has become one of the most sorts after sites for music MP3 files download. I first found out about it through one of their mobile apps (they had their website running through both android and iPhone applications at one stage and managed to top the charts).
Basically, Mp3skulls is a music MP3 files search engine (that’s, they provide MP3 files search services). All that is needed to download from this great site is the name of the song or music you wish to download, and once you type it in the search box and hit search, you get the direct download link from a third-party site.
How To Download Songs on the Site
This is a question asked by Kerryann S on Yahoo Answers. How can I download songs on MP3skulls? Every time that I try I am taken to a new window that previews the song in quick time.
Folks at MP3skulls.to haven’t made the downloading process straightforward. Maybe this is an attempt to avoid copyright issues, who knows?
Anyway, the process is actually explained in their right sidebar.
Below, I will run you through all the steps need to download from Mp3skulls.top
To download any kind of music from this site at a very fast rate and with ease, follow the outlined steps below:
1. Stream and note the title of the song.
To download a song from this site, you need to know the title of the song or at least, the name of the artiste (knowing only the name of the artiste or the song’s title alone will make the work very big for you. I will advise you to try and know both the song’s title and artist name. And the workload will be reduced to the lowest level).
YouTube, Vimeo, and other streaming sites will help you in getting the title of any song with the artiste’s name as well.
When you have all these requirements which are by copying the song’s title and artiste name: this can be done on mobile devices by pressing on it and holding on your finger for a few seconds, and then you can select or highlight all text by moving the two separators and when done remove your finger and click on copy.
And if you are on a computer, all you need to do is use your cursor and highlight or select, then press the combination of CTRL-C or click on the right mouse button and select copy too).
2. Opening Search Box On Mp3skulls and Pasting the song’s title and Arte’s name.
We are all most there, please don’t give up on me. Come to think of it, the first step (that is, copying the song’s title and artist name) was stressful right?
I assure you, this step is simpler and less stressful than the first, trust me.
After the first part above, which is copying the song’s title and artist name. Then all you need to do is to access the MP3 downloading site, which can be done either by directly visiting the site at Mp3skulls.to or searching for the word “Mp3skulls” on Google, Yahoo, Bing, or any other search engines of your choice.
Visiting directly with the site’s address, you will be loaded to the site directly. But when accessing through the search engine, you have to click on the first result from the search engine page, and make sure the result carries Mp3skulls.to. when you are on the site, you have almost come to the end of this step.
On the site, you will see a white search box. Now, if you are using a mobile device press, press, and hold on to the search box with your finger and wait, don’t release until you see a popup that contains a section with “paste”.
When you see this, you can release your finger and click on the “paste” to insert what you copied from the previous step above, and you will notice that the song’s title and artist name have been inserted or pasted into the search box.
For those of us doing this from a computer. Don’t worry, the step is more easy and simple compared.
On your computer, all you have to do is move your cursor to the white search box and click on it, make sure that the small black dash or vertical line, whatever yours is, is blinking. Afterward, press the key combination CTRL-V, and the copied texts will be pasted or inserted into the box. Another method of doing this on your computer or system is by right-clicking on the white search box with your mouse and selecting “Paste” from the drop-down list.
Yeah! Don’t worry we are almost done with this step.
When the copied song’s title and artist name is successfully and well pasted in the MP3SKULLS’ white search box. The next thing to do is to press the return/enter button and then click on the Search button on the site. With this we have come to the end of this step, let’s move to the next.
3. Choose the matching download and save it to your local device.
After the above step, the site will load and display some results, all you have to do is to look out for them or one that is more similar to your search, that is, one with the same song’s title and artist name. Then, click on the download button.
The below sub-steps will guide you on how to have it saved to your device.
- Right-click the green download link, and click on the save link as/save target as.
- Change the file name from download, to What Ever Song You Want To Download.mp3
- Save format should be MP3 Format Sound or something like that, if it is not, then just save as all files.
And that should sort out your problems.
