    Does anyone know of a way to email someone a link to a specific page/song on iTunes? Thinking of when I find a song/vid that I know friends would like I would like to "recommend" it to them so they get a link straight to it but can't see a way to do it.

    I don't know if you can do individual songs, but on the album page by the cover art is a link for "Tell a Friend." Click that, type in their email address and you can add a short note to specify which song(s) you are sending a recommendation for and they will be notified.

    I don't know if this works on a PC, but on a Mac, just click and drag the song, and it will become a link you can drop in any text editor.

    The links are REALLY long, but if you select the song in iTunes and right-click and select "Copy iTunes URL" and then paste it into your email.

    When the person clicks on the link, it'll open a web browser and then open iTunes and go to the song. If they have iTunes.

    Your all stars!!! The "Tell a Friend" is exactly what I was after for the albums but the link to each song will do me perfectly for the odd songs I want to email people about.

    Thanks for your help!
