  1. Good to hear that so many people are willing to purchase songs online! I hope that piracy is not that much of a problem anymore. I think piracy was big 15 to 5 years ago because there was simply no other options to get songs from the internet in a convenient manner. But I am glad that people are willing to pay, since also a musician has to pay his rent ;).

    I usually prefer iTunes as my music download platform. However, I sometimes buy on Amazon if it is significantly cheaper. I have to admit that I don’t buy music that often since I would not now what to buy – I like U2, classical music and some soundtracks, and since I own most of them already I also often listen to radio (i.e., Pandora) to get some more variety.
