Here, briefly, is the most common procedure:

Download and install a "client" such as uTorrent.

Go to,, or other such site
that provides "torrent" files.  A torrent file provides
the information required to download a file.

Find and download a torrent file for the .mp3 you want.

Double-click the torrent file.  The client will ask if you
really intended to add the torrent.  Say yes the
client will begin downloading.

Files are downloaded piecewise with many computers
providing pieces.

Some gotchas:

Documentation isn't great.

Look for files that have many "seeds," computers that
can upload the file you want.  (You will be a "leecher,"
a downloader).

Ensure that all parts of the file are available.

Once you have a part of the file you will become a
seed.  As a courtesy continue to seed after you have
completed the download.
