If you are in Mainland China, this is probably the best site for listening to Chinese music online. Often, songs will have the lyrics that you can follow along like at a KTV. You can also often listen to foreign music here as well. It might require that your IP address is in Mainland China though.

A great Chinese radio station that plays all sorts of Chinese music. It randomly shuffles Traditional Chinese music, modern Chinese Pop, and Chinese light rock.

Good for finding MP3s of Chinese songs if you already know the name of the song.

Another good site for finding Chinese music

The above website will often link to this site. This is another good site for playing Chinese music. Once you find the correct link for your song, it will let you play it, and usually will give you the written lyrics as well. It will highlight the lyrics that the singer is currently singing. Note: Unfortunately you may need to use Internet Explorer to play the music. It uses a Windows Media player plug-in that seems to only work in Internet Explorer. By default this will repeat the song over and over, meaning that once the song is over, it will play it again infinitely.
