    I don't know if this is against forum rules, but what if a large chunk of Mac Rumors members with an account at the iTunes Music Store went a purchased a pre-determined song? I wonder how much it would change the ratings.....

    Here's what I was thinking: we take a look at one song in the iTMS, say, the Top Songs link in iTMS, and pick a song. We then all, en masse, on a pre-determined day, go and buy that song, and see if it changes its rating. Actually, we could do this with any song, not just one in the Top Songs link.

    I think I'll start my own thread, and see where this goes.....

    TO ARN OR ANY MODERATORS WHO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS:
    As far as I can tell, this is competely legal, if it's not, feel free to delete this thread.



    Who's with me?




    Edited for clarity's sake.

    This would be a great way for us to see how much weight we carry. If we can get enough member together, we might be able to do something!

    Better be a damn good song or I won't waste a whole 99cents doing it.

    My vote is for Cantina Band from the Star Wars sound track. It is the first song I will buy from my bookmarks and wouldn't it be funny if it ended up on the top ten downloaded songs some day?!!?!?

    It should be legal. heck this site is so cool, Apple should link it somewhere on their website or incorporate it into their itunes and ipod pages somehow.

    For those of you who are curious, here is the iTunes Music Store link to Cantina Band. This would be a great song to have on the top ten, don't you think?

    It's got my vote!

    Your best bet is when Wing gets a song or album into iTMS.

    Of course if that happened, look for the world to end...soon.

    This topic has come up before.... in that with the Billboard Digital Top songs being so new... it doesn't take that much movement to get a song in the top 10.

    Of course, it's harder now then it was a month ago.

    Thanks for the tip, I fixed it.

    I want to get a general consensus as to what song we should all set out to buy. I know some people won't participate because they don't like the song, but I hope the majority of members do, out of the wish to see what we can accomplish.

    :)

    how about something we don't already all have? :D

    www.dailytunes.com

    is your best bet for picking a song, you could pick one certain date for your little experiment and go with whatever's the daily song...

    IN MY LIFE by SEAN CONNERY!

    IN MY LIFE by Sean Connery

    This would look great in the Top 10.

    6 days.....I'd love to, but will we have enough people to constitute a worthy vote?

    We need to advertise!

    Hmm, how about Linus and Lucy from a Charlie Brown Christmas?

    Appropriate, and a classic.

    Re: IN MY LIFE by SEAN CONNERY!

    One more thought: It could show the Beatles that there's a market for their songs on the iTMS, and we're going to buy it even if it's not from them!
    (just kidding)

    That's a good idea, even if you were kidding.

    I'm too tired to think.
