25 Days of Free

On a related note, Amazon's MP3 newsletter is worth signing up for. They give away an incredible amount of music in DRM-free, 256 kbps MP3 format. In addition to these 25 songs, there is also a free holiday music sampler containing 5 more free holiday songs. All in all in December I've downloaded 50-60 free MP3s from them, all of which are now in rotation in my holiday music mix. \:\)

Enjoy.

Why exactly does amazon need to install a downloader before I can download any of these MP3s??

I'll pass on this one.

Not all of them require the downloader. I downloaded several songs without it.

The downloader is handy IMHO... it runs a script once downloaded that automatically copies the music to your default location as specified in iTunes (or WMP if you use that). It then also ensures that the music is added to the appropriate library once downloaded and put in the right directory.

Nothing shady going on there, just a genuinely handy little feature.
