Apple Promotes iTunes Festival with 6 Free Song Downloads via 'Apple Store' iOS App

Earlier this month, Apple began offering free content from its digital content stores through its Apple Store iOS app, starting with the app Color Zen and moving on to an iBookstore offering with Margaret Wise Brown's Away in My Airplane.

Just days ago, Apple began offering free download codes for photography app Landcam, but the company has already replaced that offer with a new feature promoting its upcoming iTunes Festival concert series in London throughout the month of September.

The day they post stuff like Jimi Hendrix, Cream, Pink Floyd, Jethro Tull or Focus I'll consider bothering to download - even though I have their whole collection... :D

I won't bother looking either. The last time I downloaded something free, I think it was 25 free song pack, turned out I never heard of the bands and they were some annoying emo songs. It took me a few years to figure out which songs they were to find and delete them.

Just looked up to see who the songs were by, never heard of the bands and who the hell is GaGa? Seriously? Queen had a song back in the day called Radio GaGa, did GaGa borrow the name from Queen?


Even as flamboyant as Freddie Mercury was, I doubt he or any other members of Queen would want their band to be associated with Lady GaGa!

Freddie was inspired to write the song because Lady Gaga was on the radio all the time. He loved her music and had the vinyls spinning on return constantly. That inspired the line: "all we hear is radio gaga" because all Freddie wanted to hear was Lady Gaga on the radio.

Meh, I don't recognize any of the artists/bands. Nice of Apple to offer them though.

Broaden your horizons, perhaps? Appreciate someone else's creativity?


Fascinating isn't it? Forum to track the latest & greatest technologies is filled with curmudgeons opposed to any music they haven't heard a trillion times already ... Just because its new doesn't meant it is good - but it also doesn't mean it is bad ... hey, you might like it.
