Nice service with song limitation

about Google Play Music May 2012

Unfortunately, you can only upload 20,000 tracks to Google Music, which is larger than my collection. There's no even an option to pay for more space, so I have to look elsewhere

Google Music is very nice! Uploads the music from your hard drive seamlessly and stream it to mobile (only Android at the moment in beta) and browser! It's free and you can upload 20,000 songs..
