Amazon has a set of 25 songs from Pixar movies for $3.99. Less than four bucks, folks. Instantly downloaded to your computer, or streamed via Amazon Cloud.
If you prefer, you can buy the CD for $4.99. Which is also a very good deal. This way you get the CD, which can easily be ripped onto your computer. And probably stored in Amazon Cloud, and then streamed. Maybe. Haven’t tried that yet.
The truth is at this moment in time I’m more inclined towards downloads. Not that I don’t think there’s a loss of audio quality. There is. And you don’t get a physical product. But that’s a plus right now. Because if there’s anything I don’t need, it’s more stuff.
I know. I’m the one who always says it’s your patriotic duty to buy things. First of all, I’m being sarcastic. (Mostly.) And with a downloaded product, you can buy stuff without having to actually deal with finding a place to put it. You get the music without the plastic casing, the optical disc, the pretty colored artwork… Hey, look at the fish from Finding Nemo. I liked that movie.
OK, so maybe the CD would be nice to have. Either way, it’s a good deal. So go buy it already!
