iTunes offers an exhaustive selection of songs, videos, and all, but what if you had just $0.99 to spend. How would you do it? I'm somewhat of a completist so i don't buy many single tracks (unless an artist i like has one song on a compilation/soundtrack).

So, if you had just $0.99 to spend, what would you buy?

Me:
Kurt Vonnegut's "Tock Tick" - If you don't know, find out.

or

Devendra Banhart's "Little Boxes" cover.

Oh, interesting take on the song recommendations. I actually just downloaded massive amounts of music from iTunes but if I had to recommend just one download it would have to be "How Far We've Come" by Matchbox 20. I really like that song for some reason.

I like that one too. I recently bought 'Ring Ring' by Mika, and I recommend it.

I've probably spent $40 on iTunes since Christmas, I got so many gift cards.

I would recommend, "Go DJ by Lil wayne" to teenagers, the song never gets old. And Livin' on a prayer by Bon Jovi to those above 30.

I love the iTMS, I would prefer it over any p2p program, any day, and i have absolutely no problem paying 2$ for vids or 1$ for a song.

Hard question - whatever I choose, I'd probably be wanting to trade it out after a couple weeks - but for right now Macy Gray 'The Letter' or Counting Crows 'Hangingaround' ...

No, why? They're just the two tracks that sprung to mind - almost chose 'Friend of the Devil' as second one (even though second one is not really allowed) ...
just giving you a hard time...cosmichippo named black crows as his/her favorite band the other day. i remember thinking how i hadnt heard about them in years and now here you are bringing them up again.

OK, got it now - never saw that thread. Plus, Black Crowes and Counting Crows are not the same band at all - like both of 'em, but Counting Crows better ...

I believe that the Black Crowes are back in the studio finishing up a new album... I heard that they are supposed to be touring late this year.
It's kinda funny/sad. I went to middle school with Richie Robinson. He used to beat me up back when he was a "jock". Years later, the band played our class Graduation party under the original band name, Mr Crow's Garden.
Then late one night I see them debuting on Letterman. About 4 months later, I ran into them at a movie theater by my old house.
It's funny how life plays out...
Yeah, it's a little bit extraneous info, but thought I would share anyway.

i usually get all of my music through CD's because i like to support the artists etcetc.

i WAS going to download "alchemy sounded good at the time" by Alesana so i could make a ringtone(i already own it from a CD, but you know how awesome ringtone making is..-.-) but of COURSE it wasn't a "ringtone" song.

it's things like these that make me want to mod -_-

I would suggest a lupe fiasco song such as superstar or Paris, Tokyo. I love his music.

so, i'm curious if anyone actually checked out any of these tracks through iTunes. it's far to say i wont be looking at some of them, but there are a few names i hadnt heard of. regardless, i was hoping to find some real oddities, not just "cool" songs. i guess i should have been more specific.

let me pose this question. are there any real gems to be found for $0.99?

me - Kurt Vonnegut's "Tock Tick"
and - Jerry Garcia's "Love Scene" from Zabriski Point soundtrack
and maybe Funkadelic's "Maggot Brain" - unfortunately only the remixed version is available as a single track.

any of the above are a real bang for your buck.
