Really, iTunes? Really?


this. isn’t. even. funny.

I was “experimenting” in the iTunes Store this afternoon… Every once in a while, I buy albums or whatever from iTunes, and I don’t get the full download. I get all the songs, but I don’t necessarily get the entire song. 

The amount of shit iTunes customer service puts me through before they finally release the song back for me to re-download is ridiculous. I purchased it. The only authorized computer on my account is trying to download it… why do they have to be so bitchy about it? (And as I write this—one of the six I just bought cuts out early. Good thing for my new bestie, Lawrence, the “delete song, sign out of the store, close iTunes, open iTunes, log into the store, download” dance worked this time. First time in months.)

At any rate, I’m not going to talk about what I purchased - only that between ABDC and Girl Talk, I’m starting to buy the weirdest crap. My recommendations look like those of several people now. I have a hard time believing that my musical tastes are THAT diverse. But with the exception of the random country song. they are all mine.

So… to circle back to where this all started:

I’m screwing around in iTunes, looking for stuff to buy and see if they will download without a problem.

I decide to see if Black Mountain Symphony’s album is available on iTunes… and what do I spy with my little eye?

Other people who bought this album also purchased: Jason Mraz’s “We Sing. We Dance. We Steal Things”.

Guess what song is on that album?

I’m never going to escape that damn boy and the song that haunts me…
