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.
