This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

Bought my first song from iTunes today. "Still Loving You" by the Scorpions. At first, I noticed a hiss in the song, but I decided that it was simply the headphones I was using. Pretty cool. I was glad to see that "Still Loving You" is the top downloaded song by the Scorpions, and not "Rock You Like a Hurricane" or "The Zoo", although I do like "The Zoo". Showing my age, again...

I wouldn't recommend it unless you have a high-speed connection, though. Luckily, I can plug my laptop in at school -- instant broadband! Gotta like that.

I'm a bit disappointed in the selection, though. Every time I think of a single song I would like to have, they aren't there. "I'll Be There" by The Escape Club? Nope. "Baby Mine", by Alison Krauss? Nope. Oh well. Hopefully it'll get better.
