I got an MP3 player for Melanie last year; I'm content with my CD player, as I prefer albums over playlists. It came with a coupon for 25 free downloads. Several months later, I have finally downloaded my 25th freebie. With just a few exceptions, I went for extreme nostalgia (as opposed to my CD collection, which is almost all music that is new to me). Artists that weren't available that I would have liked to download include The Beatles ("Dear Prudence"), Steve Miller ("Fly Like an Eagle", "Keep On Rockin' Me"), and Zeppelin ("When the Levee Breaks", which is only the greatest rock song ever). Note that I was born in 1967, which makes it surprising that there isn't more 80's music on here. Okay, not so surprising.
Here's the list:

- Alanis Morissette - "Everything" (Sadly, I much prefer the 3-minute video edit)
