View Full Version : Do you buy music from iTunes?

Bob Dole has been purchasing most of his music from iTunes over the past few months and was wondering.

Bob Dole doesn't have an iPod, but it's sure a lot easier to just search and download CDs online, then burn the things. Bob Dole was previously a MusicMatch user, and the iTunes player, while a little different, seems to offer most of the same functionality.

I just repurchased The Meat Purveyors - Pain by Numbers. I had purchased it about a year ago and a week after purchasing it and before I could make a backup copy my computer was stolen. So this time first thing I did was burn it to a cd.

I haven't yet, but I've had a $15 gift certificate burning a hole in my pocket for over a year now (it's burning real slow). I'm on dialup so I've been hesitant to mess with it.

IIRC, iTunes was originally derived from MusicMatch so there should be some similarities..

I've bought several songs off of iTunes. They have a pretty good selection of music available. And I love the way the application works, it's very user friendly.

My wife buys from them a lot.

I like the compilations they put together. You can get a great selection of songs from an artist/genre all in one neat package.

Hell no. If you pay for music, you are a FOOL!

Or a good and honest person who feels compelled to pay for the fruit of someone else's labor.

That said, has anyone actually gotten the "give this track/CD as a gift" function to work? Bob Dole has been trying for about 4 hours and the damned thing keeps returning an unknown error.

Weirdness...

Bob Dole's iTunes affiliate status was approved and Bob Dole was messing around last night with the links and went to purchase a song that he had used the "tell a friend" link to email it to himself.

Now the song that was released on January 24 and was there on Monday isn't available until April 3.

WTF?

They must have run out of stock or something. :shrug:

I like eMusic. I've never bought anything from iTunes, though.

I hate iTunes.

I use eMusic myself.

iTunes reformatted over 3,000 songs I had on my hard-drive. I had them reformatted back to their original files, but since then I don't use iTunes anymore.

Odd. It hasn't done that to Bob Dole's collection.

I've bought a couple episodes of "Lost" from Itunes, and two songs, both of which came from albums that I'd put on ITunes, but that song skipped on my CD.

The Guess Who "Laughing"
Steely Dan "Doctor Wu"

What's cool is that it comes with better album artwork than you get from amazon or google, AND it has the album and track information built into it so it just fits right into the album where it should without you having to mess with it.

Definately worth the dollar when it completes an album that would otherwise have a big fat hole in it where track #5 used to be.
