Holy Cow, iTunes Hits 10b Songs Milestone

The iTunes juggernaut shows no sign of slowing down.

Apple is blowing the trumpet that its iTunes digital media store has sold 10 billion songs.

We’ve played a tiny part in helping Apple reach this extraordinary milestone by purchasing over 100 songs from iTunes.

Besides English, iTunes has a huge collection of Tamil, Hindi and other Indian language songs.

As we type this post, we’re listening to Mohammed Rafi’s An Evening in Paris featured on the non pareil Shammi Kapoor.

After that, we’ll listen to Kishore Kumar’s Zindagi Ek Safar, featured on Rajesh Khanna and Hema Malini in the film Andaaz and then our evergreen favorite T.M.Sounderarajan’s Pachchaikili from the MGR film Ulagam Sutram Valibam.

The purchasing experience on iTunes is very smooth whether you do it from your PC or the iPhone.

All ye cheapo desis will be glad to know that most songs on iTunes are 99-cents.

iTunes is the #1 music retailer in the world and features a music catalog of over 12 million songs.

Besides songs, iTunes also peddles 55,000 TV episodes and 8,500 movies including 2,500 in high definition.

    Can you post the youtube links to these songs so that I too can enjoy them!! 😉

    Sorry sweetie, even if we wanted to (and we don’t want to), we can’t.

    99-cents for a song ain’t a king’s ransom. Oh well, compared to free we guess it is. 😉

    In any case, most Bollywood, Kollywood et al songs are already on YouTube.
