If you didn’t get an iTunes card for Christmas, don’t worry. I am going to share with you one of the Internet’s best kept secrets. It’s called To access the site, you have to go to and it will direct you to the site. You can buy almost ever song iTunes has, but songs are only $.09-.15 each. I have been using it for over a year and it is totally legal so you don’t have to worry about that. I read all the terms and conditions for you. There is one hurdle, its all in Russian… ok, just kidding. It’s not. But, you do have to pre-pay for songs. I put $25 on my account over a year ago, and I still have a few dollars left. They do that to make the songs cheaper. That way, they don’t have to pay a transaction fee everytime you buy a song (like iTunes). The set-up of the site is similar to iTunes. You can listen to all the songs before you purchase them. All the songs are GREAT quality and no file sharing business. Anyone else get music legally from somewhere else other than iTunes?
