We knew it was coming, Apple has finally introduced a tiered pricing scheme for songs in iTunes.
Basically, more popular songs will cost $1.29 and less popular songs will cost $0.69. The majority of music will stay at the standard $0.99 price point.
This probably won’t affect the majority of people visiting this site, and I haven’t seen a single song priced at $0.69 so it’s all the more reason to use Amazon’s MP3 Service. Where songs can often be found for less than $0.99 and are never more than that. Songs from Amazon are also easily imported into any media player using their excellent software.
But better yet, support your local record store and enjoy the perks of a fully packaged disk.
